General Information

Downtown Grand Rapids If Grand Rapids really is the shining beacon of West Michigan, then downtown Grand Rapids is the super-charged engine that powers it. What a difference a decade makes. Grand Rapids is a small, modest city with a population of 200,000 and a couple of decades ago we were headed in the wrong direction. Fortunately, Grand Rapids has a wealth of business leadership, great public-private cooperation and local philanthropists that care about the city. Because of this, Downtown Grand Rapids shows signs of growth all around from a growing residential real estate market, which is led by some truly exceptional downtown Grand Rapids condos, the Heritage Hill Historic District and the Grand Rapids Medical Mile on Michigan St.

There is so much happening downtown! We have a thriving office environment, cultural diversity, a growing residential community and a vibrant nightlife. Residents from all over the region come to Grand Rapids for work but especially for entertainment. Last year, downtown Grand Rapids hosted the first Artprize and it was such a huge success, it will be back again this year. The Van Andel Arena is home to our sports teams, let by the IHL Grand Rapids Griffins. The Van Andel also is also the place to go to see concerts with all of the top artists. You can take the sky walk from the Van Andel all the way up to Devos Performance Hall. Devos is home to the Grand Rapids Symphony and plays host to many conventions and shows.

As the cultural and entertainment center of West Michigan, a hub for major events, conventions and concerts, downtown Grand Rapids continues to grow and attract more visitors and is one of  the most desirable cities to live and one of the fastest growing real estate markets. The quality of life downtown improves and is enhanced through organized efforts established to maintain the central city.
