Hotel, businesses planned for GR’s Celebration Village

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A hotel, Starbucks and urgent care center may soon join the cluster of businesses surrounding Celebration Cinema North in Grand Rapids.

Thursday, the Grand Rapids Planning Commission approved a change to guidelines for the Celebration Village development to allow an urgent care facility. City planning officials speculate urgent care facilities were not originally included as a possibility for the development because that type of business didn’t exist when Celebration Village was built in the mid-1990s.

Grand Rapids Retail Management II, LLC plans to demolish the former Chili’s Grill and Bar at 2135 E. Beltline Ave. NE and build two buildings on the site. One of the new facilities would house a WellNow Urgent Care center and the other would feature two retail spaces, one of which is expected to be a Starbucks.
