Report Is something big coming? in Grand Rapids Posted June 23 I would say about 6-8 years ago my buddy told me that he had seen some preliminary sketches that the Devos family had commissioned for the Fulton/Market riverfront property. I think at the time it was just to get an idea for what could be built on that site, but no specifics. He high up at (and in line to take over) a very large commercial contractor business in West Michigan, one who has worked on a good chunk of the major developments downtown. He definitely has access to a lot of renderings that haven't been made public. I would think that would be the last extremely large development spot in GR. And it sounds like the Devos family has had their eye on developing it for a while. So that is my guess.
