Metropolitan Title Expands Offices
GRAND RAPIDS — Metropolitan Title Co. has leased the first floor of The Earth Tech Building, 5555 Glenwood Hills Parkway, for its closing offices and marketing department.
Real estate investors Todd Schaal, John Green and Sam Cummings own the building, which they purchased from Earth Tech in June.
“We are really excited to have an outstanding firm like Metropolitan anchor the ground floor of this new building,” said Green. “The improvements that we have made, together with the quality of our property management, has us very optimistic about the remaining available space.”
Bill Bowling represented Metropolitan in the transaction while Chip Bowling represented the building’s owners. Both are with Grubb & Ellis Paramount Properties in Grand Rapids. The Earth Tech Building is located near 28th Street SE and the I-96 expressway in Cascade Township.
“This is one of those deals where everybody wins,” said Bill Bowling. “Met gets a great location with outstanding exposure for them and the building owners were able to utilize the existing space with very few modifications.”
