Medical Office Gets Started
GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP — Ground breaking was held last Friday for the new Knapp Professional Building, a medical office structure going up at 2911 Knapp St. NE near the Knapp’s Corner development in Grand Rapids Township.
“Our patients and employees are excited about the convenient Knapp’s Corner location. The new facility is situated in a high-growth area, which is easy to find and provides plenty of free parking,” said Dr. Kyle Randall of Michigan Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine PC, a tenant in the new building.
Wolverine Building Inc. will manage the construction.
“The 10,000-square-foot, two-story conventional steel office building has a Midwestern, early 1900’s-era design, which blends into its unique wetland setting. The building envelope uses many natural materials, a mixture of applied stone veneer, wood beams, standing seam roof and other period pieces,” said Dulane Coval, project manager for Wolverine Building.
“The idea is to have a traditional environmentally friendly neighborhood on the original agricultural site,” added Coval.
The building will be located on the edge of a site known as Celadon New Town, a 22-acre, mixed-use, natural environment development. The structure is set to open next spring.
