Space Available to Rent at Front Street Studio

On the corner of Webster and Front Ave, on the fringe of downtown, is a 105-year-old brick building that has housed a variety of small companies over the years. Designers, photographers, videographers, writers, musicians, engineers, sporting good distributors, consultants, mitten makers, screen printers and even candlemakers have made this their home.

The building is located conveniently close to US-131 and I-196 on and off ramps. It is also close to downtown Grand Rapids.

Currently, there is a 1,300 square feet warehouse-type space available that would be perfect for small manufacturing or product distribution. It includes two parking lot spaces and use of the common kitchen and meeting room.

There is also 2nd-floor office space available, 350 square feet that includes one parking space and use of the common kitchen and meeting room.

To learn more about the available spaces, please contact Duke Gray at BluHouse Properties at duke@thinkbluhouse.com.

r.o.i. Design Supports Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary

r.o.i. Design Supports Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary

There are so many causes and needs in our community. This year, our hearts went to pets and sheltered animals. Several of our team members lost pets this year, or face losing them, or are searching for that new pet. It is a daily topic of discussion in our office. We realize how much pets mean to us, and how they are such healers. So, during this holiday season, we decided to campaign to raise funds for one of our favorite animal causes, Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary.

We met Mackenzie’s through our clients Sue and Hank Gignac. Sue has been an avid volunteer for years, and Sue and Hank have rescued many of their animals. Sue’s love for the people and animals of Mackenzie’s put us on a path to set up a fundraiser and to volunteer as a company to support their work.

Our holiday card sentiment sums it up pretty well:

“A pet to cuddle and love brings great joy. We wish you all the love and joy this season can bring.”

You can DONATE to our campaign raising funds for them HERE.

Midtown CityZen Mixed-Use Development

Midtown CityZen Mixed-Use Development

 

Stacey Udell (L) & Ronda Geyer (R)

This month we finished the installation of more than 100 window shades for Wolverine Buildings Group’s building at Midtown CityZen. This is a multi-use development by Third Coast Development in downtown Grand Rapids. It’s worth mentioning that on this installation, there was no working elevator. Our team got their exercise walking the shades up and down four floors. The product looks great, and we’re a little more fit!

We want to thank Wolverine Building Group’s project manager, Landon Jones for the opportunity to work on this project.

The main focus at r.o.i. Design is interior design, but over the years we have added other related services. We became a distributor of commercial window coverings in 2016 and have seen this solution become more and more important to our customers. We focus on solar shades, a simple solution to cut glare and heat without adding a bulky window treatment.

A January 2018 article by MLive describes the project in more detail.
