Suroeste Brillante Apartments

Grand Rapids, MI

40,500 Sq. Ft.

Affordable Housing Community Part of Neighborhood Resurgence

Project Overview

Wolverine Building Group constructed the Suroeste Brillante Apartments within the Plaza Roosevelt neighborhood in Grand Rapids. Part of a shared effort among Habitat for Humanity, Dwelling Place, Mercy Health Saint Mary’s, and Grand Rapids Public Schools, the Plaza Roosevelt development will expand economic opportunities, affordable housing, healthcare, and education for the community.

The project involved the new construction of a 40,500 sq. ft. building with 24 two- and three-bedroom apartments. Project features include community gathering space, garage parking with elevator access, and plaza greenspace in a smoke-free community.

This project carried the logistical challenge of coordinating with other construction projects. Habitat for Humanity and GRPS had active projects on adjacent sites that required additional communication and coordination. This led to volunteer opportunities with Habitat for Humanity and the Grandville Avenue Center for the Arts & Humanities.

Received the 202 ABC Award for Excellence in Construction.
