GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- Development plans for the Village at Knapp's Crossing, on the East Beltline near Knapp, are finally moving forward -- with a new team and a new plan after the previous developer declared bankruptcy.
Lormax Stern is partnering with Visser Brothers, Inc., to turn the area around P.F. Chang's and the D&W store there into a new complex that contains high-end restaurants and more retailers.
Bill Mast is the president of Visser Brothers, Inc . He has worked with Lormax Stern before, transforming Centerpointe Mall.
"Between P.F. Chang's and Knapp St, there is a potential for two or three new buildings," explains Mast. By the pond, "a more traditional retail space." This is more than 150,000 square feet of new construction.
Chris Brochert at Lormax Stern says they are still courting businesses for the project.
