Avanterra Forest Hills Preserve Groundbreaking




Continental Properties announced the groundbreaking of Avanterra Forest Hills Preserve, a brand-new luxury, 149 single-family home rental community in Grand Rapids Township, MI. The community is located at the northwest corner of Knapp Street and I-96, less than 5 miles from downtown Grand Rapids. Avanterra Forest Hills Preserve will be the first single-family rental home community in the area and will feature homes ranging from one bedroom to four bedrooms.  

Avanterra Forest Hills Preserve offers the privacy and space of a single-family home, with the convenience and flexibility of renting. Residents will experience peaceful living and enjoy open-concept home layouts with large gourmet kitchens, private outdoor spaces, driveway & garage parking, and abundant storage. Avanterra Homes Communities feature maintenance-free living and residents can take advantage of convenient amenities including a resort-style pool, a 24-hour fitness center, community clubhouse, and a leash-free dog park with pet spa. 

“Grand Rapids is ranked the top city for both employment and population growth in Michigan with large employers such as Spectrum Health and Acrisure expanding operations in the metro area,” said Heather Riggs, Vice President of Multifamily Operations for Continental Properties. “Avanterra residents can expect easy commutes to downtown Grand Rapids, convenient access to local attractions including the TreeRunner Adventure Park, and a myriad of restaurants and entertainment options minutes from the community; all while living in the comfort and privacy of a single-family home.” 

Pre-leasing for Avanterra Forest Hills Preserve will begin late 2022 where interested residents can visit the community and view home finishes and floor plan options. Move-ins are expected as early as February 2023 with the completion of the community clubhouse and first homes. 

Avanterra Forest Hills Preserve will be the first single-family home rental community developed by Continental Properties in Michigan. Continental owns and manages three luxury apartment communities in the Grand Rapids metro – Springs at Knapp’s Crossing, Springs at the Reserve, and Authentix Quincy Street.
