about

Our mission is simple: to build urban community.

We transform underutilized spaces into places that incubate communities where people can work, play and just…live.

Each of our projects follows a mixed-use model, with a central focus on market rate, residential apartments. Retailers – such as the reincarnated Grand Rapids Brewing Company – often make their home at the ground floor of our communities, but their lifeblood is the residential community living above.

Why do we focus on residential development?

Because people make your life…

…and because residential density causes cities to grow and thrive. When retailers, employees and residents engage with one another and with their neighborhood, community grows. Critical mass builds. Nearby neighborhoods flourish. You know the rest of the story.

At 616 Development, we endeavor to build better communities for the people who work, play and live in emerging neighborhoods.
