Firestone Lofts represents industrial-modern, chic living at its finest with concrete floors and exposed walls.
Grand Rapids is experiencing a boom in development and two existing major redevelopment projects are pending that will have a significant positive economic impact on Firestone Lofts. One of the most exciting developments in Grand Rapids history, 201 Market, is a 15.8-acre river front property located within walking distance from Firestone’s front door. The winning proposal from Flaherty & Collins includes four buildings, which would be built in three phases. Overall, the site would include a grocery store, luxury hotel, multiple mixed-use residential and retail buildings, a riverfront plaza, and walkway along the Grand. As more and more students and young professionals choose to live in more urban locations, the addition of walkable amenities such as a grocery stores and added retail will give downtown properties a significant advantage over their competitors. This development will transform the riverfront in downtown Grand Rapids.
