Clark Place Condos

Clark Place Condos

Clark Place CondosSo I have been showing Clark Place Condominiums to potential buyers this week and I have to say I am very impressed with this project. As one of the City’s newest downtown Grand Rapids Condos, this is a fantastic project and will turn out to be a superb place to live.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Clark Place Condominiums offer large living spaces for the price. We are talking about an average of $115 per square foot, which is below the average cost for a condo in Downtown Grand Rapids. Also, the association dues are $0.18 per month, also very reasonable considering what you are getting.

What you do get at Clark Place Condos are large living spaces with open floor plan layouts, large bedrooms with walk-in closets, tall ceilings and very large windows. I have now seen most of the floor plans and I can honestly say that I haven’t seen one yet that I didn’t like. The condos are bright and airy and all on the top floor of the American Seating building. The grounds are nicely landscaped with a large, quiet courtyard with water fountain, benches and grilling area in back and an amphitheater which seats 75 people. There is plenty of parking as well as each unit comes with its own private garage. The lot has ample room for (free) quest parking as well.

If you are looking for something downtown, its better to act fast on these. They started with 22 units available of which, as of today, nine have sold. If you would like to take a tour of these or any other downtown Grand Rapids condo, please give me a call at 616-570-1871 or contact me any time.

If you are reading this and you have a condo to sell, definitely give me a call as this is a fantastic time to have your downtown condo on the market. We are definitely lacking inventory downtown!
