Changes coming to Grand Haven shopping plaza

Changes are coming to the 550 Beacon Blvd. shopping center, formerly known as the Grand Plaza, which was the long-time home of Blockbuster Video and Mattress Doctor. Grand Rapids-based CWD Real Estate Investment took ownership of the property a little more than a year ago. According to CWD Real Estate Investment Managing Partner Scott Wierda, the firm has been actively implementing a marketing plan to fill the shopping center with tenants that will "serve the community and stabilize the asset.'

“I’m very happy to say that our efforts are proving successful and we have secured several new tenants,” Wierda said.

While new tenants were secured, Wierda said several of the existing tenants were on month-to-month leases. In order to accommodate the long-term commitment of a single larger user, the real estate company needed to take possession of those spaces, he explained.

Despite efforts to keep them in the plaza, Wierda said the businesses were not interested in relocating within the center.
