Apartments Downtown

Studio Park Lofts

These lofts are modern, yet minimal– a blank slate you can truly make your own. Choose from multiple open floor plans, including studios that are hard to find in Grand Rapids.

Between the high-end finishes and touches of technology, our price point looks pretty tempting. And that’s just on the inside. The community amenities are pretty sweet, too.

Our lofts surround the public piazza at Studio Park, a buzzing environment where modern living intersects with downtown life. Don’t walk or drive to the action. Live where it’s at.
