The Grand Hotel, a $100 million mixed use project in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, is scheduled to open in 2017.
The hotel is the first in the United States to have a $200 million mixed purpose project.
It is also the first hotel to open on a site adjacent to a metro area’s central business district, with plans to expand to a larger hotel.
The Grand has already received a number of accolades, including being named one of The Top 10 Most Visited Hotel Resorts in America by Travel & Leisure magazine.
The new hotel, named for the legendary Grand Rapids horse-drawn carriage, will feature retail shops, restaurants, and a sports complex.
It also will house a new public library, which will be able to be accessed via the existing downtown library, as well as other public spaces.
The property is slated to become a hub for retail, restaurants and entertainment, with the Grand Hotel becoming the first American mixed-purpose project to be designed with a wide variety of tenants.
The project is being developed by Grand Rapids-based HKS Construction, which was founded in 2013.
Its previous projects include the construction of the Marriott Grand, the Hilton Grand, and the Hilton Marquis in Grand Rapids.
The company has also been involved in several other mixed-income projects in Michigan, including the new Marriott Marquis Hotel and Grand Rapids City Center Hotel.
The HKS project, which includes a hotel and office space, is expected to generate an estimated $3.5 billion in economic impact over its five-year construction timeline.
The hotels project is the result of a collaboration between HKS, the Grand Rapids Economic Development Corp. and Grandville Properties, which owns the Grand River Corridor.
It was also supported by the Michigan Department of Economic Development and Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
Grandville is the developer of the existing Grand River and Grand River Gateway project, and has developed hotels in Grand Valley, Lansing, and Detroit.
HKS plans to develop the hotel into a mixed-used hotel and retail hub with offices, restaurants (including Grand Rapids’ own Restaurant and Lounge) and retail.
In addition to the Grand, HKS also has planned a $5 billion mixed-development project called the Grand Hyatt Hotel and Spa in Grandville, Michigan.
It will include hotels, office, and retail spaces.
The Grand Hyatts hotel will feature four hotels and will be located in Grand River’s historic Grand Hotel District.
It includes a three-story hotel, an 80,000 square foot retail center, a restaurant and lounge, a fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool, and an 8-acre recreational park.
The Hyatt hotel will be a major economic engine for Grand Rapids as it will be one of the first hotels to expand beyond Grand Rapids to include an adjacent area in Grandland, which is a county seat of Muskegon County.
The development is expected be completed by the end of 2021.
The Grand Hytt Hotel will have a mix of luxury and non-luxury amenities, including a rooftop deck with swimming pools, a tennis court, a sauna, and sauna showers.
The resort will also include a gym, fitness center with exercise equipment, a meeting and event space, and meeting rooms.
The site also will include the city’s first-ever public library.
Harkness Partners, the company that built the hotel, plans to continue to improve the hotel’s features with upgrades, adding new amenities, and adding more parking spaces, among other improvements.
The future of the hotel will depend on whether it can be approved for development.
As part of the approvals process, the city must approve the use of the site’s land and other parcels for residential, commercial, and/or retail uses, according to a release.
The city will also require that the hotel is built within the city limits of Grand Rapids and that the city approves any zoning changes that may impact the hotel.
This is the second Grand Hotel project to receive federal support in the last few months.
In February, the Department of Housing and Urban Development approved the project’s application to receive funding to build a $130 million mixed development on the site of the former U.S. Post Office building.
In May, the United Nations Development Program announced that it had awarded a $500 million grant to support the construction and operation of the Grand Grand Hyat Hotel in Grand Haven, Connecticut.
