Colliers International says the Rhode Island-based company has been revamping the 33,000 square-foot space for the last two to three months.

A representative of Launch Family Entertainment Park says the site will be home to KRAVE restaurant, a 27-game arcade, rock-climbing tower, trampoline courts, toddler play area, jungle gym, several party rooms and a VIP mezzanine.

This is Launch’s first franchise in West Michigan. The company says it picked CenterPointe mall because of its central location. The next closest Launch is in Okemos, near Lansing.
