Development in Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids Development MapThe nation’s 3rd best economy. The 2nd best large city for starting a business. The #1 job market in the U.S. These are just a few of the economic heights Grand Rapids has scaled in the last few years … and they’re not the only things rising to new levels here. The city’s economic vitality is fueling an unprecedented surge in capital development.

These new developments are part of what we’re calling A Grand Investment – and they’re paying impressive dividends for both residents and visitors. Here’s just a sampling of projects that are augmenting the $3 billion of construction value the city has added since 2000:
