Exploring the Meyer May House

By mike / March 11, 2019 /

One of the best times of year to get out of your house and explore Grand Rapids is in the Spring. As leaves begin to sprout and flowers bloom, we are reminded of the historic and significant architecture that our wonderful city has to offer. Touring the Meyer May House in the historic Heritage Hill Neighborhood is just one of the activities that should be on your to-do list this Spring. Originally designed by Frank Loyd Wright in 1908 and commissioned by Meyer S. May, this home stands in stark contrast to the Victorian design popularized during the same time period. Making use of prairie style aesthetics and broad design lines, the home played an integral role in revolutionizing modern home design standards for today. House Restoration In 1985, the Meyer May House was purchased by Steelcase furniture company with the aim of restoring the house to its original glory. Opening to the public in 1987, the home underwent a significant amount of detailed upgrades including the repairing of over 100 windows, the reconstruction of the original style roof, and the reopening of the previously closed off veranda.

Pet Friendly Condos In Grand Rapids

By SVG / February 7, 2012 /

Pet Friendly is a Great Thing! Love the downtown condo lifestyle but worried your favorite pet won’t fit in? Worry no more! There are numerous buildings downtown that are pet-friendly and offer green space for them to play and run around in. Most buildings do have pet restrictions though. These restrictions might include breed type, size, weight, age and number of pets per unit. Most associations are also strict on noise and making sure the building is enjoyable for all. If your pet likes to bark, you might want to make sure it won’t disrupt your neighbors. Here is a list of downtown housing that likes to see you and your pet! 38 Apartments 47 Lafayette Avenue 23 Boardwalk Condos CityView The Fitzgerald Fulton Flats The Gallery Apartments Hillmount Monroe Terrace Park Row Peck Condos Plaza Towers Riverhouse Union Square Please note this is not a full list. If you would like to see what is available in these buildings and others that allow pets, please contact me.

By SVG / July 11, 2008 /

I just thought it would be good to make every one aware of how the downtown market is moving. Over June and now July there seems to be a big upswing in young buyers looking to buy their first condo.

The most popular and affordable buildings that I have been touring with buyers are: Hillmount 505 Cherry St. SE Grand Rapids, MI 49503 With 10 condos under construction this building is selling very well right now.
