GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A new three-story, multi-use building known as the "gateway" project will be coming to West Grand Rapids in early 2020.

Leonard Street Partners, Inc. said the $5 million building will be at the corner of Leonard Street and Broadway Avenue. Officials said it will anchor the West Leonard Business District and help serve as a gateway project for the rebirth of the historic business corridor.

“I look at this project as helping launch Grand Rapids’ next dynamic corridor to the northwest of downtown,” said Kurt Reppart, Grand Rapids First Ward City Commissioner.

The project is expected to break ground in early 2020, and officials said it came together through a collaborative effort of next-generation investors.

Paradigm Design, a national architecture firm, announced plans to become the lead tenant in the building.

Our firm has been growing and expanding into new markets, and we are excited to bring 45 professionals to this new space and continue to create success for all of our clients,” said Joe Greco, President, Paradigm Design, which will occupy the majority of the second and third floor. “This new space is designed to foster a cohesive working space where our Architectural, Civil and MEP engineering teams can collaborate efficiently.

More information and architectural renderings will be announced at a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.
