Bazzani Associates and Eastown Phoenix, LLC are proud to announce the property at 1500 Wealthy Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI has achieved LEED-Gold certification!
This Mixed-Use, Urban Infill project replaced a two-story building which was destroyed by a natural gas explosion and fire. The new building is constructed using insulated concrete forms with steel, bar joist and concrete floor systems – especially appropriate for a site with this history! Construction operations were challenging as the building covered 95% of the available land in Eastown’s active commercial district.
The first floor commercial tenants are All City Kicks, a hip shoe and clothing store, and PT-360 who are excellent Physical Therapists focused on athletes. The second floor has three, two-bedroom, two-bath apartments with energy efficient appliances including washer and dryers in each unit. All tenants will experience 40% lower utility costs than comparable properties.
We are grateful to all who helped us achieve LEED Gold certification and bring this project to fruition during difficult economic times.
