Downtown Grand Rapids

Moving from a big city and want to keep the vibes? We get it! Let us say that Downtown Grand Rapids is for you. Living downtown GR allows for the big-city excitement without the big-city struggles. From entertainment to dining to sightseeing, there is plenty that downtown has to offer. A short bus ride, bike ride, or walk to everything you need. Catch a bite to eat with some live music at The B.O.B. or head to Van Andel Arena for a live concert! There is never a dull moment in the downtown area.

Medical Mile

Do you dig downtown life, but don’t necessarily want to be in the heart of Grand Rapids? Check out the Medical Mile! This neighborhood stretches along Michigan Street just northwest of the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Here you will find the neighborhood of the world-class healthcare destination. This once “sleepy” neighborhood is starting to pick up traction in retail and real estate. If being located near Medical Institutions is on your checklist, call us to schedule a tour of the area today. 

Heritage Hill

This beautiful residential neighborhood is recognized as one of the largest urban historic districts in the United States. And you guessed it, it’s on a hill! Located just east of the booming Downtown GR area, this historical niche community is perfect for those on the hunt for the classic Victorian Home. Within this neighborhood, you will also find several in-fill* mid-century modern homes. If you cherish the history and the homes that come along with it, Heritage Hill is a neighborhood to add to the list. 

* An infill home allows you to enjoy a brand new home in an existing neighborhood, so you have the benefits of an older neighborhood with all the luxury of a new home.

East GR

Looking for a family-friendly neighborhood? Check out one of  America’s Top 10 “Best Places to Live for Suburbanites” and one of “10 Great Cities to Raise Your Kids.” Located just east of downtown Grand Rapids, the Eastside neighborhood has a lot to offer that we love. Aside from its charm and recognition, the area offers plenty of parks, playgrounds, and nature areas, all perfect for creating lasting, meaningful, and fun memories with family and friends. 


If you ask locals of the Westside neighborhoods, they would tell you that “The Westside is the best side.” And while we love all Grand Rapids neighborhoods equally, the Westside has some unique history. It was first connected to Grand Rapids by the footbridge in 1842. Yes, footbridge! The neighborhood continues to grow. If you are looking for a grocer that offers “Whole Food” vibes, The Bridge Street Market is your local market destination. Here’s a fun fact – it is the first urban supermarket from locally headquartered grocery industry titan Meijer!
