An ADA housing nonprofit in Grand Haven completed a new apartment complex.

Gracious Grounds opened leasing and is prepping for move-in day in early February for 35 additional residents at its newly constructed Lakeshore Flats apartment development at 17003 Lakeshore Drive, Grand Haven.

Lakeshore Flats consists of 156 units spread across six buildings. There are two 30-unit buildings and four 24-unit buildings made up of a combination of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartment homes.

Community features include a wheelchair-accessible clubhouse with a pool, hot tub, 24-hour fitness center, community room and business office. 

All first-floor apartments at Lakeshore Flats are ADA adaptable, and three units have been modified to be ADA accessible. Specific modifications include pocket doors, roll-in shower, all-in-one washer/dryer with all controls within reach of a wheelchair user, a modified floor plan that allows for a ceiling-mounted hoist system between the master bedroom and bathroom, and elimination of lower cabinets in specific parts of the bathroom and kitchen to allow for wheelchair access.  

Lakeshore Flats is not considered low-income or Section 8 housing.

Construction began in the first quarter of 2019, and Copper Rock Construction served as general contractor.
