Firm completes medical office building
A local construction firm has finished a 42,000-square-foot office building along a major medical corridor in town.
Grand Rapids-based First Companies, which also offers commercial real estate and property management services, completed construction on New Vista in Grand Rapids, at 2155 E. Paris Ave. SE, according to the firm this week.
First Companies broke ground on the project in October 2017, the Business Journal previously reported.
The cost of construction was not disclosed. The majority of financing was provided by United Bank. An anonymous group of private investors also contributed funding.
New Vista is the third class-A medical office building completed by First Companies.
Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery is the anchor tenant, occupying 14,750 square feet. It will host an open house on Feb. 13 from 4-7 p.m.
Pediatric Dental Specialists of West Michigan is occupying 5,232 square feet, and QTbreasthealth is occupying 1,865 square feet.
The remaining space is under contract to undisclosed tenants.
“Everything has been top tier, from the quality of construction, the timeliness and management of building costs,” Dr. Bradley Bengtson said. “We have created our dream location with double the space we had previously, state-of-the-art operating suites and expanded non-surgical services.”

First Companies will also lease available space and oversee long-term building maintenance going forward.
NAI Wisinski West Michigan will also handle leasing for the building
