GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The proposed movie theater project in downtown Grand Rapids is a step closer to becoming a reality.
The Downtown Development Authority voted to grant land to be used for the Studio C theater project. The plans were announced by Loeks Theaters and 616 Development last week.
Plans for the complex include a movie theater, 200 residential units, nearly 40,000 square feet of retail space and a new parking ramp with about 900 spaces. The complex would be built along Ionia Avenue and Oakes Street.
The project is estimated to cost about $100 million, which would make it the sixth largest development in downtown Grand Rapids.
