Work begins on affordable housing apartments in Grand Rapids

CityZen construction

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - There's been a lot of talk about affordable housing, or the lack thereof, in Grand Rapids -- but construction is underway on a new four-story apartment building aimed at working class residents.

Midtown CityZen is located in the midtown district of Michigan Street, and will include 44-units.

Apartments will be priced as affordable to individuals and families making 80 percent of the area's median income. Part of the ground floor of the building will include space for a restaurant.

The building is scheduled to open in fall 2018.
