GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- City planners this week approved plans for a new microbrewery at 1504 Plainfield NE. It would fill the building formerly used by DeKorne Furniture. It's just the latest investment in a corridor that's received plenty in the past year, and likely more in the future.
"I think the brewery's going to be a game-changer in the area," said Frank Heeringa Friday, the same day he opened his new take-out pizza place Swanky's Pizza on Plainfield.
The as-yet-unnamed brewery would open in late fall or early winter, said one of the developers, Scott Schultz. Schultz has brewed at two Grand Rapids breweries in the past. The site will include a restaurant, banquet hall, outdoor seating, and live entertainment.
616 Development has announced a pair of projects along Plainfield - bringing new apartments, retail and office space.
