GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Kent County Road Commission is auctioning off 14 acres of property in Grand Rapids, including prime real estate along the Grand River.
The road commission announced Wednesday it would be accepting sealed bids for four parcels of land on the city’s northwest side, including 1500 Scribner Ave., 1600 Turner Ave., 1632 Turner Ave. and 1660 Turner Ave. The property includes approximately 1,090 feet along the western bank of the Grand River and is currently home to the road commission’s salt dome, central complex and the majority of the commission’s administrative offices.
Grand Rapids’ master plan envisions the land as a mixed-use development. The commission says the GR Forward Downtown & River Action Plan sees 15 “opportunity sites” on the land running along the Grand River. The road commission says the property is currently zoned as a traditional neighborhood-transitional city center, which allows for housing, government, organization, entertainment, hotels, recreational, business, industrial, transportation and utility development.
