1340 Monroe - Apartments or Commercial Renovation

Recommended Posts

1340 Monroe could also go residential.  Thats a huge 5 story loft building that will be positioned nicely when all the new river front developments happen.

See Franklin Partners, LLC's post on their facebook page to confirm what he is alluding to. ;)

 

I know, they bought Display Pack and the building (1340 Monroe). I believe they're in process of finding a new home for DP first, but I'm not sure if they've settled on apartments yet? There were some articles out back in December.

A friend who works for Display Pack said they were moving to a former Wolverine Worldwide distribution center up a little south of Cedar Springs.  If you take the White Pine Trail north of Rockford, you cross a dirt road and there's a big hulking building on your left. He said they are going in there.  He didn't mention a timeline for the move, though.

I'm not really sure what we're looking at in the images, but I "think" this first view is looking South into the L-shape of the building. And that the building to the left with the diagonal screens is a parking ramp built on top of the surface parking.

The other image is looking from within the glass wall toward the parking ramp (?)

Here's another image, apparently. This project could be pretty sweet as commercial. Franklin Partners has a good track record with commercial users, which could provide more jobs in the city.

For those who can't picture the building:

With all the new developments communicated on river front activation, 1340 Monroe seems like the perfect location for high end apartments.  Franklin Partners have done cool things with their office buildings with fitness centers and restaurants.. it would be interesting to see what they would do for a residential development.

After Franklin Partners has left this dormant for a few years, Third Coast Development and PK Development are putting a new mixed use proposal together .
