Edward Rose & Sons


Edward Rose & Sons is a family-owned company known for providing modest to brand new luxury apartment communities in 17 different states. Their team has played a vital role in transforming the landscape of local communities and envisioning what land can be developed into. The company handles all phases of development including land acquisition and construction of buildings, while retaining the ownership and management of their communities after completion. Their approach of building and holding has given the company a unique approach to multifamily development. 

Advantage advisors Dave Rapp, Mike Murray and Lane Wells have worked with the Edward Rose & Sons team for over 15 years, assisting them in various buying and selling initiatives. 

Dave Rapp recently worked alongside the Ed Rose real estate development team in the acquisition of land at the M-6 and Broadmoor interchange. The site was secured for Meadowbrook and construction began on the 492 Studio, one-, and two-bedroom units. This is the first new community in Grand Rapids since the company completed Green Ridge in 1998. The development offers 11 unique floorplan options, a new building style with attached garages, upgraded finishes, state-of-art fitness center and expanded outdoor amenities. The 109.58-acre site will house 62+/- acres of apartments and 37+/- out lots/commercial property. The Meadowbrook development will expand their current portfolio of 4,000+ units within the Grand Rapids market.

“Working with Kirsten and the Edward Rose & Sons team has been fantastic. The work they are doing across the Midwest has always impressed me and I am confident the Grand Rapids community will benefit from their commitment to developing a vibrant apartment community in one of the busiest corridors in our market.”
