Third Coast Development reveals $27M hotel plans for Grand Rapids, Mich.

Construction on a new 142-room 5-story Hampton Inn & Suites hotel will begin this spring in the Mid Towne Village development in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Third Coast Development announced the new hotel will be managed by Lodgco Management, a Mount Pleasant firm that owns and operates 15 hotels in central and western Michigan, including a 94-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites located behind the Green Ridge Square Shopping Center in Walker.

"We believe the Hampton Inn & Suites property will become instantly beneficial to the growing Mid Towne portion of Michigan Street,” said Dave Levitt, a partner with Third Coast, which bought up houses in an aging residential neighborhood to create the village, which includes the Women’s Health Center, Park Row Condos and 545 Michigan Street, a mixed-use office and restaurant building.
