The Brix at Midtown
Grand Rapids, MI
Lord Aeck Sargent designed a 287-unit residential apartment building in Grand Rapids.The Brix at Midtown, located along the city's Medical Mile, targets young professionals and students.
The Medical Mile is home to Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine, Grand Valley State University’s Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences, Spectrum Health’s downtown hospital campus and clinics, and the Van Andel Research Institute. The Brix has a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom market rate and student apartments and provides such amenities as a fitness center, clubhouse, business lounge, enclosed courtyard with fireplaces and a hot tub and two dog-walk parks. The project also includes a 320-space, four-story parking garage. It is slated for completion in late 2017.
LAS is also providing landscape architecture services for this project, focusing on not only the courtyard, but also the streetscape to ensure it fits with Grand Rapids’ Michigan Street Corridor Plan, which provides a mix of bus transportation, bicycle lanes and sidewalks along Michigan Street.
