Making it in Grand Rapids: How the GR SmartZone is evolving to better support entrepreneurs

May 26, 2016;

The Grand Rapids SmartZone made its name as an economic development engine that helped power the Medical Mile.

… “We looked for nonprofits that had a similar mission and focus, and that wouldn’t affect the capture by other taxing jurisdictions namely Grand Rapids Public Schools, Grand Rapids Community College and Kent County,” she (Kara Wood) says. “We felt the ones we added had some current or future alignment with our mission, vision and goals.”


Pedestrian walkways to close through June 7

The pedestrian walkways from the roof deck of the Bostwick ramp will be closed from Tuesday, May 31, to Tuesday, June 7, for necessary resurfacing repairs.   This impacts the skywalk from/to 4th floor Main and the walkway to 3rd floor Student Center.   Individuals will still be able to access the elevators and both stairwells from the top of the ramp.   Thank you for your patience!

If you see lost students, please assist!
