Six-story apartment building proposed in GR Heartside neighborhood

An active Grand Rapids housing developer is planning a six-story apartment building that includes repurposing a historic structure in the downtown Heartside neighborhood.

Karl Chew of Midland-based Brookstone Capital is proposing the housing project on a vacant surface parking lot along the north wall of an existing historic building at 78 S. Division Ave. Five floors of the new building are planned for residential use and the ground floor will be a parking garage.
