Grand Rapids Commerce Center

The Ashley Capital Grand Rapids Commerce Center property was formerly home to a large Steelcase office and manufacturing campus covering approximately 200 acres of industrial property on the southeast side of Grand Rapids. In 2005, Steelcase announced that it would be selling the campus, which contained 18 industrial or commercial buildings comprising 4.3 million square feet. Steelcase maintains its world headquarters and learning center on the campus, and Ashley Capital has made significant investments in modernization and reconfiguration of the space and has developed a master plan for the campus which includes opportunities for lease or purchase of existing buildings and/or six outlots covering approximately 13 acres.
