Redevelopment of Grand Rapids Site Into a Sports Complex

CDV5 Properties, an investor in Michigan Sports Academies (MSA), renovated the former Woodland Skating Center and Woodland Sports Center into a sports complex for volleyball, basketball, soccer and lacrosse.

Warner’s Real Estate Practice Group assisted with the negotiation and acquisition of the real property and with the negotiation and termination of the existing tenant’s lease. In addition, we facilitated discussions with the City of Grand Rapids regarding the redevelopment of the site and design constraints associated with the local zoning ordinances.
Our Construction Industry Group structured the design and construction contracts for the overall expansion and renovation of the project. We interfaced with city representatives to confirm permitting for the design.
Warner’s Business and Corporate Services Practice Group formed an appropriate entity to hold the new facility consistent with the owner’s business and tax objectives and prepared the related organizational and governance documents.
