CBRE Relocates, Expands Office Space in Grand Rapids CBD

CBRE has relocated its Grand Rapids office to 200 Ottawa Avenue NW, Suite 110. The company has expanded its footprint from 1,444 square feet at 634 Front Avenue NW to 4,350 square feet in a prime location in the city’s central business district.

The new space features a modern workplace design, conference rooms for increased collaboration, free-address seating — where no employee has a dedicated desk or private office, natural light, and space to grow. 200 Ottawa Avenue NW is a Class A office building that overlooks Calder Plaza alongside various government and municipal facilities.

“The office is designed to encourage collaboration and flexibility, thus, fostering a more engaged workforce. It is a shining example of the modern work environment that supports how people work today. We look forward to growing our Grand Rapids business and our team of market-leading professionals,” said Paul Van Devender, Managing Director and Michigan Market Leader.
