You may have heard about Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation’s plans to demolish the long vacant and blighted old IHOP at 19505 Grand River. In its place, GRDC will build a new, mixed-use building that will include 42 one and two bedroom senior apartments. There will also be three community spaces set aside for communal activities. The first floor of this new building will feature retail spaces for small businesses hoping to set up shop in Grandmont Rosedale’s growing commercial corridor. One of these retail spaces will be a much anticipated sit down, family-friendly restaurant/bar. This project is in response to residents’ desire to stay in the community they love even when they no longer wish to own a house. Aging in place will be possible, right here in Grandmont Rosedale.

GRDC welcomes input on this project from surrounding communities. To learn more about this project, and to share your thoughts, attend the Wednesday, Feb. 23 District 1 Virtual Community Meeting from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Our neighboring organization Sidewalk Detroit, is helping us spread the word about this project. To rsvp for the meeting, email Hope to see you there!
