GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Developers are breaking ground on two multi-family housing developments along the Cascade Road SE corridor this spring.

Orion Real Estate Solutions and its project partner, Cusp Group,are planning to build Knoll Townhomes of Ada, a 72-unit housing project at 1040 Spaulding Avenue SE, north of Cascade Road SE.

"Based on the feedback and neighborhood communications we've had, we feel the area is primed for investment," said Orion President John Wheeler. "We're grateful to the Ada Planning Commission and the Ada Township Board for their approvals."

"Our team is thrilled to break ground on The Knoll next month," said project partner Michael Maier of Cusp Group. "We love this site and our investment is supported by a fantastic public school system, area amenities, and convenient access to the highway and downtown Grand Rapids."

Orion Construction Co. began site work last month and will begin building on the 10-acre site in April, according to an ORES news release. Progressive AE is the project architect. Cusp Group Interior Design provided the interior design.

About 3.5 miles to the southeast, a.j. Veneklasen, Inc. announced it will build Cascade East, a housing development at 2771 Orange Avenue SE near the intersection of Cascade Road and 28th Street SE. The project will include 18 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

"This is an excellent opportunity for those looking to re-locate to a vibrant neighborhood within the Forest Hills School District," company president Chris Veneklasen said. Cascade East is slated to be finished by the end of summer 2018.
