I have wondered in writing about Downtown Grand Rapids Condos how far the borders actually stretch.
My thinking is that a downtown condo in Grand Rapids fits in two categories and they are:
Urban Core– Truly walk able to all things in the heart of Downtown
Urban Lifestyle– Can still walk or ride your bike to most of Downtown Grand Rapids and be less than 5 miles from the city core. This could include: Heritage Hill, East Hills and Heartside District.
With that being said I would like to highlight a new project that is being built. It’s called Fairmount Square.
This is a project that would fall into the Urban Lifestyle Category. Fairmount Square is a new project that is being built by EastBrook Homes. This is not your typical high rise Grand Rapids Downtown Condo project. This project is made up on the old townhouse style condos.
I have been asked to take people on tours of this new project, which sits behind the new ICCF building. Fairmount Square is built with the idea of affordable urban living with out giving up square footage. Most units boast 1400 square feet with basements that can be finished for more living area or storage. Yes, storage in an Urban Condo project it not heard of.
So if you’re looking to stay urban and want to be close to the Hospitals, Nightlife, and Schools, but also want to be able to spread out a little more, this might be the project for you. With units available starting in July, Fairmount Square will be filling a void that the Grand Rapids Downtown Condo market has not is able to fill.
For a tour of this project or any other Grand Rapids Downtown Condo Project please feel free to contact us.
