UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGE

With the demand for downtown housing continually on the rise in Grand Rapids, Orion Real Estate Solutions (ORES) decided to construct a new townhome community. ORES engaged Ghafari to provide architectural and interior design services for the project.

TAILORING THE SOLUTION

The community encompasses 87 two- and three-bedroom units spread throughout 23 buildings. Our design of the buildings stemmed from a desire for housing that more closely resembled single-family homes with a variety of sizes and layouts. Our team spent time meeting with the city planning department, and listening to the concerns of community members. To further respect the neighborhood and lessen the impact on the area, we kept the buildings centered in the middle of the site, maintaining the clearance outside of the wetland to leave the site’s existing ecosystem unharmed.

SUPPORTING WHAT MATTERS

Michigan Meadows offers comfortable townhomes complete with gas fireplaces, granite countertops, custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a washer and dryer.
