Belknap Place is a new 3-story, 50-unit apartment building nestled in the historic Belknap Lookout neighborhood of Grand Rapids that provides an equitable mix of affordable and market-rate residential units. The building is close to Grand Valley State University, the “Medical Mile” healthcare district, and popular restaurants and attractions with easy access to public transportation and the highway—a critical location for urban connectivity. The project is a public-private endeavor between the development team of PK Development Group and Third Coast Development and the property owner, Grand Valley State University (GVSU). The building design resulted in a unit mix of 35 1-bedroom apartments, 13 2-bedroom apartments, and two 3-bedroom apartments.
Each of the 11 unique unit plans has open concepts, modern finishes, and large windows for ample daylight. First-floor units are walk-up-style units with private porches and individual entries, while the upper floors have flat-style apartments. The development also features a community room, covered and uncovered parking, and high-density bike storage.
