Grandview Commons opening its doors

By Lonnie Huhman,

Grandview Commons is opening its doors for the public and potential buyers to get a look at the early results of the new condominium community being built in Dexter.

This weekend, from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, the team at A.R. Brouwer Company, along with help from the Charles Reinhart Company, will have an open house at 403 Baker Crossing. There will be free food available from local eateries.

“We want to give potential buyers as well as community members a chance to see what we’ve been doing here,” said Jessica Singer, a realtor with the Charles Reinhart Company.

Singer said at the open house, attendees will get to see the finished product of one floor plan called The Arbors, which is the duplex model.

This floor plan is described by Grandview Commons planners as a, “captivating spacious 2-story floor plan with basement includes main floor master bedroom suite and laundry; the open concept kitchen and dining room features an island with granite countertops; an expansive first-floor master bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and private bath with dual-sink vanity and luxurious finishes, and second floor offering a large bedroom and private bath.”

The open house model’s furnishings, decor and staging were done by Whitetail Farm, a Dexter business offering interior design services. The model is for sale.

Over the past year the location has transformed after seeing the demolition of the old manufacturing building and then a Brownfield cleanup with extensive site work.

Now the construction process is well underway, even through winter. The end goal is a three phase project to create a 76-unit condominium community. Singer said they have already sold four units.

According to A.R. Brouwer, the development will have four building types: duplex, eight-unit stacked condos, four-unit stacked condos and townhomes.

Jodi Trisdale, A.R. Brouwer’s marketing manager, said construction is going well even with the typical slower times during the colder months. She said they are anxious for the spring market.

Until then, she said “things keep moving forward.”

Trisdale said they are excited for the open house because it will give them a chance to also show the community the quality of construction going on at the corner of Baker and Grand.

“There’s been a lot of thought put into quality,” she said.  

The units feature modern kitchen designs, upscale interiors, energy-saving amenities and quality construction details.

There’s also the attraction of the surrounding community with its walkability, great schools and services.

These are just a few things, so anyone interested in learning more go to the open houses or if you can’t the model address at 403 Baker Crossing has hours: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday or by appointment.
