The Convenience of Being Downtown

A conversation with mLive Media Group

July 10, 2019

169 Monroe's central location within the heart of Downtown Grand Rapids places tenants in the middle of all the action. Its close proximity to the City's diverse selection of hotels, restaurants, and landmarks makes it one of the best office spaces in Grand Rapids.

The building is home to mLive Media Group. The group has been the go-to source for local news in Grand Rapids and across the state of Michigan. mLive's offices downtown allows them to stay close to the community and deliver the breaking news in a timely manner.

169 Monroe overlooks Rosa Parks Circle, making it a short walk from the main attractions in Downtown Grand Rapids. In addition, the building is also connected to the City's indoor Skywalk system, allowing tenants to travel throughout the City in a covered, conditioned tunnel across Grand Rapids.

The building's unoccupied 3rd floor has over 8,000 SF of available space, including an outdoor deck that overlooks the city streets. Between its location and on-site amenities, 169 Monroe stands out as a rare opportunity for businesses looking to move to Grand Rapids.
