    New Downtown Grand Rapids Development

    Downtown Grand Rapids is continuing to grow! Studio Park is a new complex that will be built South of downtown - behind the Van Andel Arena.  During this time of development, there will be many parking lot closures and road closures around that area. Some will only be temporary, others will be permanent changes. Explore the City of Grand Rapids' Interactive Visitor Parking Map to assist with parking options.

    Studio Park Complex Construction by Phases

    Phase 2 (March) will continue with the closure of Cherry St. under US 131 from the off ramp of Business 131 to the west to Grandville. You will still be able to exit the highway there, but you must turn right and follow the detour.

    Phase 3 (March - April) will continue with the closure of northbound Ottawa between Oaks and Weston. Southbound will remain open.

    Phase 4 (May - July) will have Oakes closed between Grandville and Ionia. This is the street that runs East/West behind the Van Andel Arena. Earlier construction on Cherry St will be complete and should be used while Oakes is closed.

    Phase 5 (July) will close Ionia between Cherry St and Oakes St.

    Phase 6 (July - August) will close Cherry St between US 131 business routes and Ionia.

    Phase 7 (June - July 2019) will include an additional segment of Ottawa between Oakes and Cherry. No street closures are anticipated but this addition will open Ottawa Ave to Cherry St.
