7th Street Lofts – Construction Junction

By SVG / April 2, 2018 /

A lot has been happening at 7th Street Lofts and we’re excited to bring you the latest updates. Walls are going up in a few different areas including around the gym and common area. Not to mention the flooring that’s getting a beyond gorgeous refresh. We’re also obsessed with the new installation pieces in the lobby off of the Sixth Street entrance. All of the hard work that Rockford Construction is putting into this project is really showing and we are excited to watch it come together. We still have a unit available now and more to come over the next few months. Contact us to take a look at the breathtaking progress that’s being made or swing by one of our upcoming open houses. We’d love to see you there!

The Factory – Downtown Grand Rapids Co-Work

By SVG / April 2, 2017 /

A few years back, I spent some time with the fun people that work and enjoy life together at The Factory in downtown Grand Rapids. What a group! You might be wondering why I’m bringing this up now. I only spent about an hour at The Factory talking with three of their members. The purpose of that hour was to see the space and highlight it right here on the GR Downtown Condos blog. Initially, I thought I was helping them but, turns out, I was wrong! I ended up learning so much about co-working, collaboration and an all-out ‘cool’ work environment. During my tour at The Factory, I also was able to spend half of the time talking about a new marketing idea that one of the members had for his website: VNN. It was great to ask the Why? and How? questions of the marketing plan and pick his brain about how it was going to work. From this short, 30-minute conversation I came away with ideas and thoughts for our own team! I walked into The Factory hoping to promote a cool space and ended up collaborating right along with them. That’s what true co-working is all about:…

New Downtown Condos Coming to Historic Grand Rapids Building!

By SVG / December 31, 2014 /

It’s official! The Olds Manor building located at 201 Michigan St NW will soon undergo an exciting conversion to a multi-use residential retail building called ‘The Rowe.’ Olds Manor, which is located just east of the Grand River next to the downtown post office, is downtown Grand Rapids’ last remaining major vacant building and has been owned by RDV Corp. since 2002, when it was purchased from Peter Secchia by Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel for $4.5 million. The building will undergo a complete restoration of its beautiful historic facade, along with the creation of an underground parking garage. When complete, The Rowe will feature dining and shopping venues on the ground floor, apartments on the third through ninth floors, and new condominiums on the upper two floors. The building originally served as a downtown Grand Rapids hotel in the 1920s through the 1960s. Construction on the new project is slated to begin in the Spring of 2015. For more information about condo developments in and around downtown Grand Rapids, please contact SVG Real Estate Firm at (616) 439-1927

Marketplace Makeover Coming to Grand Rapids this Summer!

By SVG / March 25, 2013 /

Get ready, downtown Grand Rapids … city life is about to get a whole lot fresher! Picture this scene, if you will: You come home from work to your funky urban flat only to realize you don’t have any of the salad ingredients you need to make dinner. No worries – just stroll on over a block or two to the newly opened Grand Rapids Downtown Market, where farmer’s market vendors will be displaying fresh farm stand produce while a row of indoor marketplace vendors offer everything from artisan oils and vinegars to coffee and freshly popped kettle corn. Or maybe you need a bit of unwind time after a long day’s work – simply head on down for a stint at the spa that’s just below your condo unit. Don’t forget to indulge in a favorite cafe beverage while you’re out so you can enjoy some people watching! If you think you must be in Paris or Rome think again – you’re in the heart of Downtown Grand Rapids! And this scenario will be just another everyday perk for GR’s city residents as soon as this summer, when two major housing and retail development projects converge on the Heartside…
