GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — A castle-like housing development in Grandville will soon welcome its first residents.

Duy Vu with developer Land & Company says one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments in the Grand Castle project should be ready for renters at the end of July. The company says studios should be released in August.

The 15-story, 400 unit complex on 28th Street just east of I-196 was originally expected to be ready for residents by the spring of 2017.

In January, Grand Castle officials said construction would continue during an investigation by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Developers said the investigation was “routine procedure and not the result of any incident.”

MIOSHA confirmed it had inspected the site three other times – twice in 2016 and once in 2017.

During the 2016 inspections, state regulators reported nine serious violations and three less serious problems involving contractors PRD Construction, Inc. and Woodline Construction, Inc.

No violations were reported in the 2017 inspection, according to a MIOSHA spokeswoman.

Rent at Grand Castle will range from just over $900 a month for a one-bedroom unit to $1,500 for a two-bedroom. There will also be some higher-end apartments.

Grand Castle will also have a courtyard in the middle and free garage parking for every resident.
