UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE

As Grand Rapids’ downtown area continues to grow, so does the demand for multi-family housing nearby. To capitalize on this booming market, our client decided to develop a residential complex – Heritage Place – in the historic Heritage Hill neighborhood. They engaged our team to design a facility that would embody the distinct character of its community while providing modern living spaces and amenities to its residents.

TAILORING THE SOLUTION

Heritage Place offers 86 apartment units as well as on-site parking. Two existing historic carriage houses were transformed into a clubhouse available to residents and a service building, respectively.

Given the site’s historic status, our team worked closely with the Heritage Hill Neighborhood Association and the Historic Preservation Commission, listening to neighborhood residents’ concerns and factoring them into our design. We also supported the client as they went through the approval process.

SUPPORTING WHAT MATTERS

The completed Heritage Place brings an architectural design that reflects the historic context of the neighborhood, while also providing a fresh, contemporary feel with high-end amenities and finishes. The placement of the building establishes a new street presence. Our selection of materials and details pays tribute to the character of the neighborhood, resulting in a conscious, respectful design.
