Former Milner Hotel, the 40,000 sq. ft. building is the first Class “A” downtown office space built since 1995. The innovative building features a glass sculpture on the front and when illuminated at night, landmarks the arena district. The building was among the first to seek U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification for both core and shell, and commercial interiors. Grand Rapids Innovation and Design, AKA GRID 70, opened a new type of office environment to local businesses, based off a successful global concept. Offices will be occupied by creative professionals from various companies and have the opportunity to thrive on each other’s unique ideas and outside perspectives. Currently, Steelcase, Meijer, Amway and Wolverine World Wide are part of the office mix. The complete vision is to bring more professionals to work in downtown GR, leverage local creative resources, and overall, increase business to the city of Grand Rapids.

Indoor Outdoor Indoor Outdoor

The Women’s City Club is a private club and offers individual and business memberships. The Sweet House Foundation(501 c 3) was established in 2006. Its purpose is to preserve and memorialize the history and architecture of the house where the Women's City Club resides. Martin Sweet, the original owner of the house, was a young entrepreneur when he came to Grand Rapids in 1846. He dreamed of a distinguished and spacious home for his family and in the early 1860’s he built his home on East Fulton. This Heritage Hill two-story Italianate Villa home survives as one of the remaining examples of this style of architecture in the latter part of the 19th century.

Coit Creative Arts Academy

Outdoor Outdoor

Coit Creative Arts Academy is the elementary art school for the Grand Rapids Public Schools. The original building was built in 1880 and it is the oldest working school in Michigan. In 2002 it became an arts school. As a result families have moved into the neighborhood specifically to send their children to Coit Creative Arts Academy. Due to this the neighborhood is more art savvy than most others. It is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Medical Mile and within walking distance to downtown. With school budgets as they exist being an exhibitor at Coit Creative Arts Academy is a wonderful nod to the dedication artists feel toward arts education.

Since we are an operating business we have certain hours that our building has to be open to the public beyond the Artprize hours. Due to this any artwork on display here has the potential to be viewed above and beyond the minimum set hours. This came in handy for a lot of our Artprize guests last year that didn't want to fight the crowds or had to work in the evening. We had many guests stop in in the morning or early afternoon to view the work as well as some classes that took field trips here. We welcome and encourage this.
