Water Filtration Plant

The Grand Rapids Water Filtration Plant fell into disuse and finally disrepair after a new filtration plant was built to treat the growing city’s water supply. The complex of buildings became an eyesore and danger to the neighborhood until recently, when DeVries Companies rehabilitated the complex as residential and office space. Funded in part by Federal State Tax Credits, the site is now a showpiece in the neighborhood and has spurred additional investment and development in the area ­­– and the water tastes great!
