The Townhomes at Two Rivers isn’t quite complete, but area residents won’t have to wait to get a look inside. The apartment complex, located next to Meijer in Lowell Charter Township, is part of the fall Parade of Homes.

Organized by the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids, the Parade of Homes offers people the chance to see new construction in the area, meet with builders and gain inspiration for their own home projects.

The fall Parade of Homes runs through October 12, 2019 with hours of 5pm-8pm on Wednesdays and 1pm-8pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Adult tickets are $10 online or at Lake Michigan Credit Union locations or $15 at homes. Children ages 12 and younger are free with an adult. Tickets provide access to 32 participating homes.

Luxury Living at The Townhomes at Two Rivers

Matt McCollum of Forest Hills Homes says one of his favorite features in the apartments is the sliding barn door leading to the pantry.

With The Townhomes at Two Rivers, builder Matt McCollum set out to create luxury living in a convenient location. He selected Lowell as the site for the project, in part, because the community offers a variety of attractive amenities such as trails, downtown shops and parks. Plus, Lowell isn’t far from major employers in Ada and Grand Rapids which makes for a relatively quick commute for residents.

“With this project, my heart is right in it,” McCollum says. As the owner of Forest Hill Homes, McCollum has extensive experience building single family houses, but he was ready to try something new. When The Townhomes at Two Rivers are complete, they will have 80 units at the following price points:

  • 2 Bed/2 Bath, 1,030 Square Feet — $1,535 per month
  • 2 Bed/2 Bath, 1,133 Square Feet — $1,635-$1,730 per month
  • 3 Bed/2 Bath, 1,382 Square Feet — $1,995 per month

Although not the affordable housing some residents need, McCollum hasn’t had trouble filling available space. Of the 40 units in the completed buildings, 13 have already been leased. All apartments come with access to a 24-hour fitness center and outdoor lounge with gas grills. As a pet-friendly complex, both dogs and cats are welcome in the units, and a dog run will be added soon.

“I like the fact that this is starting to feel like a community,” McCollum says. Already, he sees kids on bikes and residents using the trails linking the buildings to neighboring stores and parks.

More information on the apartments can be found on The Townhomes at Two Rivers website. The HBA also offers additional information about the Parade of Homes online.
