The $17 million Baker Lofts project has created one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments for qualifying low-income residents. The project was named for one of several furniture manufacturers that occupied the 125,000-square-foot building during Grand Rapids’ heyday as the Furniture Capital.
The project also includes 15,000 square feet of retail space for restaurants and shops and is near the new Grand Rapids Marketplace.
The renovated furniture factory boasts wood-beamed spaces with 11-foot ceilings and exposed brick walls that will be preserved for the loft-style apartments. A courtyard that now is filled with a boiler building and abandoned wood kilns have been transformed into a garden.
