GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A new mixed-use development is underway in northeast Grand Rapids.
Orion Construction broke ground Monday on The Gateway at Belknap at 500 Coit NE. The development will include 88 apartments in two and three story buildings that are connected by corridors on the second floor. It will also include three ground-floor retail spaces and a 4,600 square foot restaurant. Developers say the project will also create 80 covered below ground parking spaces and 40 surface level parking spaces. The restaurant and retails spaces are expected to create about 150 jobs.
The development is expected to be completed by January 2017.
