Union Square Condominiums - Grand Rapids
This new property is the old Union High School, more recently known as West Middle School, and has undergone a swift and amazing transformation. The Union Square property is historically significant to many people. It was Grand Rapids’ main high school from 1875 to 1968 and this history will remain part of it’s charm. Reminders will include the original double banister stairways, 12 to 21 foot ceilings, hardwood maple flooring, and 12-inch oak windowsills. Genuine slate chalkboards, fire drill instructions, trophy cases, school furniture, and some of the old light fixtures will help reinforce the school motif throughout the public areas of the building, and even in some condominiums.
