Madison Square

With a wave of reinvestment rippling from the intersection of Madison Avenue and Hall throughout the neighborhood, Madison Square is a classic example of a once-blighted Grand Rapids neighborhood on the rebound.

The future certainly looks bright. Madison Square not only borders high profile districts like Cherry Hill and Heritage Hill. It also boasts a brand new public library, a full service grocer, and rows of brand new brick clad condominiums and other homes priced to sell.

With the help of committed community groups and creative economic development incentives, Madison Square is poised to revive its reputation as the bustling shopping and residential  district it was at the turn of the 20th century.
