Built in 1926 as the Grand Rapids Storage & Van Co., and designed by famed architect George S. Kingsley, this National Historic Building is an important cultural landmark in the Eastown neighborhood of Grand Rapids. Through a series of development upgrades, Bazzani Building Company transformed the under-utilized property into a mixed-use space of ground level retail with apartments & offices above.
The art deco-style building, which is LEED Silver Certified, is part of a collection of shops, restaurants, cafes, breweries and other boutique businesses in Eastown. The building now offers 5 retail spaces, 20 office spaces, and 41 one- and two-bedroom apartments. Bazzani worked with the building owners and the City of Grand Rapids from concept through occupancy to transform the obsolete building.
