Pre-leasing for the newest apartment complex in northwest Grand Rapids has begun.

The Rockford Development Group is now accepting rental applications for the mix of townhomes and flats the company will build in the Stockbridge neighborhood at 600 Douglas St. NW.

Rockford Development Group is investing $2.4 million in the construction project.

Living @ 600 Douglas

The development, Living @ 600 Douglas, will have four separate buildings with 18 market-rate rental units and is expected to be finished early next year.

The rental units will total about 15,000 square feet when completed.

The site will have an outdoor garden, a storage area for bicycles and storage units for tenants.

The development will sit on roughly four-tenths of an acre.

The complex, designed by Grand Rapids-based Integrated Architecture, is intended to appeal to young urban professionals and college students.

Four buildings

One building will have four two-story townhomes.

A second building will have four one-bedroom apartments on both levels of the two-story structure, for a total of eight units.

A third building will have three stories with two one-bedroom units on the ground floor and one townhome each on the second and third levels.

The fourth building will have two studio apartments on the second floor. The building will also offer service areas, a community room and a covered patio on the ground floor across from a common green space.

Stockbridge neighborhood

The city-owned Douglas Park is a block west of the complex, and the commercial districts along Bridge Street and Stocking Avenue are within walking distance, as is downtown and the Grand Valley State University downtown campus.

Rockford Development is also offering about a half-dozen properties along Bridge Street and Stocking Avenue as potential development sites.
