Project Strategy

Built in 1955, the 500,000-square-foot building rests on 30 acres and provides ample parking, with over 350 spaces.  Other amenities include loading bays, a 12,500 volt electrical system, fiber optics, and full-time maintenance staff located onsite.

Approximately 26,000 square feet of flex office warehouse is currently available for lease, in addition to 80,000 square feet of light industrial space.  Individual office suites are also available on either a long- or short-term basis, ranging in size from 100 to 600 square feet.

Granger Group responded to Whirlpool’s need for 135,000 square feet of additional office space spurred by their acquisition of Maytag by renovating industrial space to Class B office space. The accelerated schedule was driven by the tenants need to move out of state operation to their headquarters in St. Joseph, Michigan quickly to maintain the market momentum brought about by the acquisition. A crucial driver in this relationship was Granger Group's ability to obtain financing for the $6 million in tenant improvements.

This 500,000-square-foot building is situated on 30 acres in the heart of one of southwestern Michigan’s most desirable business climates, conveniently located on the I-94 corridor with convenient travel to Chicago, Detroit and Grand Rapids.
