Four-story building on Grand Rapids’ West Side will house construction firm headquarters, marijuana dispensary
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A Grand Rapids-based construction and development firm plans to turn a vacant lot on the city’s West Side into a four-story building that would house its headquarters, a recreational marijuana store and office space. Construction Simplified aims to start construction on the four-story building at the corner of Lexington Avenue and Fulton Street in mid-April, with a tentative completion date in September or October. The top two floors of the $4 million construction will house Construction Simplified’s headquarters, with leased office space on the second floor and a marijuana dispensary operated by Cloud Cannabis on the first floor. The four-story building isn’t the only development on the city’s West Side that Construction Simplified has in the works. Gibson said he’s hoping the construction of the new office building, along with the recreational marijuana dispensary, will spark more retail interest along the West Fulton corridor.mlive.com
