‘The Hendrik’ apartments to open on Grand Rapids west side

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A new apartment building will be named in honor of a West Michigan icon.

The building at the intersection of Bridge Street and Stocking Avenue NW will be named “The Hendrik”, according to Rockford Construction.  The name pays tribute to Hendrik Meijer, founder of Meijer supercenter and grocery stores.

“The Hendrik” will feature 116 studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments.  The building is expected to open in January and will also include a fitness center, rooftop patio, on-site parking deck and a club room.  “The Hendrik” is part of a larger development at the site that will include office space, space for the West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology, retail outlets and a restaurant.

It will be above the Bridge Street Market, a grocery store being opened by Meijer.  The market is expected to open later this year.

Rockford Construction says that the Inner City Christian Federation will offer affordable housing in the next phase, which will begin this summer.

        @OK. SSI is Social Security Income, which is paid by check or direct deposit to ones bank if they have one. Are you confused?

          not at all…cash to me means ,,i have a job to pay cash for the things i need .. so for hendrik a job and references is whats gonna get u in . Trumps SSI might pay for a studio apt. for himself… anyone else might just run a tad short ..Inner City Christian Federation will offer affordable housing in the next phase is what u might qualify for ..sorry to melt your snowflake ..

            No reason for attitude. All places will require income verification and references. Trumps SSI may not cover the cost of a studio because of his expectations. That goes for everybody, working or receiving SSI. One can obtain a mortgage with SSI, with income verification, credit check, references, etc. Just having a job doesn’t seal the deal. Some work for minimum wage and/or part time.

    The streets will not be able to handle the traffic around Meijers store/apartments.Do they think its 4 lanes?A nightmare in the making.The residential area surrounding it is ghetto.Good luck everyone.
