GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A new $6 million development is planned for the Creston business district — a project developers and neighborhood organizers hope will transform the area along Plainfield Avenue.
Wednesday morning, 616 Development announced plans to tear down the former Club North building at 1359 Plainfield Ave. NE to make way for a mixed-use building. It will include 40 market-rate apartments and 2,600 square feet of retail space.
The Creston Heights Market, also on Plainfield Ave. will be renovated and Red Jet Café will also get a roof-top patio.
Lawrence Duthler, co-owner of Sun Title, says the announcement culminates investment and confidence that has taken ten years to build.
"The more and more renovations and investments that are done, the more in turn it feels like a neighborhood," Duthler told WZZM 13.
