Downtown Grand Rapids is booming! The city is growing at a pace that we haven't seen in a long time and that fact is even more evident as of yesterday when Orion Construction broke ground on two new towers.

The two towers will be located on the grounds of the former Ellis Parking lot at 150 Ottawa Ave. NW, between Lyon St. and Pearl St.

The project will have three major developments:

  • A 12-story Hyatt Place Hotel
  • A 15-story office building (Chemical Bank and Warner Norcross & Judd are the major tenants)
  • A 430 car parking ramp.

As of right now, the project does not have a scheduled completion date.  You can see a picture of the groundbreaking on WZZM 13's website.
