Venue Tower

Project Overview

Orion Construction partnered with Kent Companies to transform a downtown parking lot into Venue Tower, a 11-story, 88 unit apartment complex situated in downtown Grand Rapids.

Our team worked with Orion Construction and the City of Grand Rapids to schedule pours for minimal disruption to downtown city traffic. We placed over 400 tons of rebar and poured over 4,725 cubic yards of concrete for the 11-story post-tensioned structure.

We saved 22 days of crane time with an innovative pouring sequence—an approach that is completely unique to the West Michigan market. Venue Tower was a big challenge, but our team made short work of it.
