Project Description:

In April of 2017, ground was broken for the construction of The Exchange Building in downtown Kalamazoo with construction expected to take about two years.

The Exchange is a $52.4 million, 15-story mixed-use development project with 345,000 square feet of residential and commercial space centrally located at the southeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Rose Street. The Exchange will include 60,000 square feet of commercial space, 133 studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom luxury apartments, and 289 secure, covered, private parking spots.

The Exchange will house commercial and retail lease areas on the first, second and seventh floors. Levels three through six will provide secure automobile parking for occupants and residents. Floors eight through fourteen will be residential units with a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and studio apartments with views overlooking the city. The fifteenth floor will accommodate commercial lease space and general building amenity spaces such as club room spaces and furnished rooftop terraces for residents and commercial tenants.

Key construction systems include an auger cast pile foundation system, cast in place concrete columns, and post tensioned concrete floor decks. The exterior envelope enclosure will include cast-in-place concrete walls systems, aluminum frame storefront systems with insulated, tinted and colored glass units. The parking decks will be screened with vertically oriented aluminum extrusions providing a decorative louvered screening effect.


Project Team:

Architect/Enigneer: Byce & Associates, Inc.

Construction Manager: Orion Construction


Continuing Education Credits: There will be 1 HSW credit available to attendees for the building tour. (Pending approval by AIA CES)
