A recent Housing Next study reports that Kent and Ottawa County need to build over 13,000 new rental units by 2025, which is an average of 100 new units per week. This is far more than the number of units coming on-line or in the construction pipeline.
With occupancy averaging 98% and with double-digit rent increases, there is an urgent need to develop and build more rental housing.
We're helping build the solution.
We're three Grand Rapids-based business owners and entrepreneurs who've strategically joined forces as Victory Development Group.
Each of us brings a unique set of skills and experiences to the table that allows us to build market-rate apartment communities that appeal to all types of residents.
There has never been a greater need for housing in West Michigan. Our goal is to construct as many new quality residential units as possible, while building vibrant apartment communities and revitalizing neighborhoods.
"THE SECRET OF CHANGE IS TO FOCUS ALL OF YOUR ENERGY NOT ON FIGHTING THE OLD, BUT ON BUILDING THE NEW."
Victory on Leonard is a $21 Million, 120-Unit, Mixed-Use apartment development located at 900 W Leonard Street in Northwest Grand Rapids, MI.
The original Grand Rapids YMCA building was located here, and in 2020 Victory Development Group purchased it with the intent to develop and build apartment units. We broke ground in November, 2021 and are scheduled to welcome our first residents in Summer, 2023.
