2013 to Present -BELKNAP LOOKOUT Redevelopment – Medical Mile Grand Rapids, MI 49503

The Belknap/Lookout Redevelopment and ASP (area specific plan).  GRH Development paved the way for infill-redevelopment within one of Grand Rapids’ most historic communities. A rezoning process that

took over 7 years and during one of our nation’s worst recessions. 

Belknap /Lookout is ideally situated within the shortest walking distance to Downtown Grand Rapids’ Medical Mile. GRH Development (formally Belknap Properties) worked closely with investors, landlords, and the community to bring revitalization to an area forgotten and overlooked for years—with new housing options, mixed use retail projects, and institutional redevelopments that include the expansion of Grand Valley State University’s Cook Campus at Lafayette and Hastings, 500 Coit—a Mixed Use retail/Brownstone housing, replacing blight at 500 and 600 blocks of Clancy NE with multiple new apartment and Chicago-inspired brownstone condominiums.

Belknap Lookout redevelopment is a testament to the persistent and dedicated efforts of a few to overcome immense odds in bringing sustainable infill development  to one of Grand Rapids’ most historic communities. Special thanks goes to GVSU, Orion Construction, Nederveld Engineering, Concept Design, Belknap/Lookout Neighborhood association, and City of Grand Rapids’ planning and zoning.
