Warner Building

Multi Story Mid Rise Office Buildout
Grand Rapids, MI

Warner Norcross is the anchor tenant in the mixed-use development, which includes a 15-story office building,12-story hotel, ground-floor retail and restaurant space.

The project was bid out 12 months ahead of start of construction. The white box build out was bid out before the ‘box’ existed, as the construction of the mid-rise was still underway. The project was completed in 7 months from start to finish. The completion date was important to the owner due to an ended lease of the old office. Move in of employees was coordinated gradually by turning over one floor at a time so that by Friday, October 14th all employees could complete their move from the old location to their new offices.
