Union Square Condominiums, located in downtown Grand Rapids, gives you not only one of the finest condo developments to call home, but also a close and quick access to the finest breweries.  Living at Union Square gives you loads of great features and boasts amenities such as a roof top pool, hot tub, sun deck, clubhouse and fitness center.

One of the best features of living downtown in “Beer City USA”, the close proximity of many wonderful local breweries to spend and build connections with friends or family or business opportunities.

You can spend time watching the Tigers as you grab a beer and pizza at The Mitten and be home in less than 5 minutes.   You can catch a local band while grabbing  a pale ale at Founders all within walking distance.

Union Square is more than a place to live, it is a place for living.

Call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466 to see all that Union Square has to offer you.
