Jon Rooks and his Parkland Properties team are down to their last developer condo at Boardwalk Condominiums.  If you are in the market to buy a downtown Grand Rapids condo, then getting down to see this last condo should be on your list of things to do.


Besides the wonderful amenities that are a part of this development, such as J.D. Reardon’s restaurant, the onsite fitness center (Monroe North Fitness), pool and hot tub, and free covered parking, Rooks and his team have FHA financing available with a very low 3.5% down payment.  Plus, they have priced this last condo with close out pricing, and you can see why this is a great value.


If you have been looking or just starting to look at living in downtown Grand Rapids, then Rooks invites you to come see the great value at Boardwalk Condominiums.  Hurry, because there is only one left.


Call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466 to schedule a showing.


Have you been waiting for the perfect time to buy?  We all have some part of us that doesn’t want to make a mistake and sometimes that causes us to wait.  Hopefully we don’t wait too long?  What if now is that great time to buy?


Jon Rooks and Brad Gruizinga are confirming what real estate experts are saying, that now is a great time to buy.  And if you are looking to buy a downtown Grand Rapids condo, then they have the place for a perfect buy.


Union Square Condominiums is an award winning development in downtown Grand Rapids.  It has been called the “New Cool” design in the old school. And with only a few developer units still available and close out prices in place, you can see why Rooks and Gruizinga have the perfect buy.


Don’t wait too long on this one, or you might just miss it.  Call Brad Veneklase to schedule your time to see what Union Square has to offer.   Brad can be reached at 616-988-6466.


Are you in the market to purchase a condo?  Do you realize that because of the low interest rate environment that we are currently in, that purchasing is less expensive than renting right now?  What if you could add the ability to get into your own place with only 3.5% down?


Jonathan Rooks of Parkland Properties believes that now is one of the best times in history to purchase your very own place.  “We are in a low interest rate time, and the Federal Bank has promised to keep it that way.  Add to the work we have done to qualify for FHA financing with only 3.5% down, and you will realize that purchasing a condo is much better than giving your money to someone else by renting.”


If you have wanted to get your own place, then now is an incredible time to make the move.  Living in downtown Grand Rapids is a plus.  Take advantage of it.


Call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466 today to schedule a meeting.


When you look at the work of someone, you get an idea of who the creator or artist is behind the work.  When you get into Union Square you will have this same chance to get a feel of the hard work and attention to detail that Jon Rooks and Brad Gruizinga put into this project.  Their desire was to take what was old and discarded and make it into the “New Cool” of Grand Rapids.


Union Square has loads of great features such as a roof top pool, hot tub, sun deck, clubhouse, and fitness center to aid in your enjoyment of the downtown condo living.  With only 4 custom developer lofts remaining, you better get down to see them.


To get a better feel for a Rooks and Gruizinga condo, call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466, and he will show why Union Square can be a daily part of your life.


What another amazing Artprize Grand Rapids put on for us here in 2012.  From the “Lights in the Park” to “Rebirth of Spring” and the grand prize winner “Elephants”, it continues to add to the buzz of living in downtown Grand Rapids.  And there is still a Jon Rooks winning piece of art that is available to view at Union Square Condos.


But like just like Artprize, these pieces might not be available for viewing very long.  So if you enjoyed the excitement of downtown Grand Rapids during Artprize and have wanted to live in the midst of it, then getting into a condo at Union Square is a must see.


To schedule your art viewing, call Brad Veneklase at 616-988-6466.  Do it today!

In a recent CNN Money article by Les Christie, Grand Rapids Michigan was listed on their “Most Affordable” places to live.  Jon Rooks of Parkland Properties would definitely have to agree.  Rooks said, “Over the last couple of months we have seen a large increase in the interest of our downtown condo projects.”  Brad Veneklase, Associate Broker for Parkland, stated that they are down to 1 available unit at Boardwalk Condos and 4 units at Union Square (out of 420 units total).


They both attribute the increase to the tremendous values that Grand Rapids has to offer along the incredible financing opportunities.


Kara Wood, Grand Rapids director of economic development, was quoted, “the city’s economic base, which once relied heavily on the furniture-making industry, has become more diversified. Health care is now a driving force in the local economy.”


Parkland, with their two-redevelopment condo projects, has been a benefactor of the desire to live downtown as buyers are looking to be close to work and the increased restaurant, entertainment and nightlife choices.

Congratulations Grand Rapids on being voted Beer City USA 2012!  We here at Parkland Properties agree that there is no better place than Grand Rapids to find a great beer.


That is why we built our condominium projects here in downtown Grand Rapids, because we wanted our residents to have the ease of stepping out their door to large area of different venues to taste great beer…okay that might be a bit of a stretch.  We have enjoyed being a part of the resurgence of downtown Grand Rapids.


So come on down and let’s raise a pint to all the great breweries here in Grand Rapids.  Whether it’s Founders or HopCat or Brewery Vivant they all are worth the trip.  And if you want to be close all the time, then stop in to see if we can help.


Congrats Grand Rapids!  Beer City USA 2012
