New $5M building to serve as ‘gateway’ to Grand Rapids’ West Side
Developers on Tuesday announced plans to build a three-story multi-use building at the corner of Leonard Street NW and Broadway Avenue, an investment that officials said would serve as a “gateway” to the city’s West Side.
The development is being created by Leonard Street partners, a group that includes Johnny Brann Jr. and Johnny Brann Sr., the owner of Brann’s Steakhouse. The new development is next door to the Brann’s restaurant at 401 Leonard St NW, which is also undergoing a $1 million renovation.
In addition to the Brann family and Greco, other investors in the project include Mike Houseman of Wolverine Building Group, and Dan Henrickson, president of Henrickson Architects & Planning.
