Because People Need a Place to Live.

Developing and building much-needed apartment housing in West Michigan and beyond.

WHY VICTORY
DEVELOPMENT GROUP?

Grand Rapids needs to build 1,000 rental units each year to keep up with demand. Currently, less than 400 units are being developed.

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 four, Grand Rapids-based business owners and entrepreneurs who've strategically joined forces to start Victory Development Group.

 

We each bring a unique set of skills and experiences to the table, allowing 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, and our goal is to build as many new rental units

as possible.

CURRENT PROJECT​

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 June, 2023.
