We're getting a better idea of what Calder Plaza will look like after its redesigned.

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. unveiled a proposed recommendation for the redesign on Thursday.

Renderings of the new Calder Plaza include shaded tree groves and outdoor furniture along with space for community meetings.

One of the primary goals getting into this was maintaining flexibility" says Downtown Grand Rapids Inc's Tim Kelly. "It is one of the few spots downtown that can host a large event. We have Ah-Nab-Awen park, Rosa Parks Circle, and we want to make sure Calder plaza stays on that list."

Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. wants ideas from the public before deciding on a final re-design from Calder Plaza.
