The East Village subdivision off  Ada Drive in Ada Township is a fairly

new development. The new housing construction started in 2005 and

is still continuing to date. You can buy a resale home or a new home

in this centrally located housing development.  Near both public and

private schools, East Village is also close to  Forest Hills and 28th

Street shopping areas. The Ada Bike or Walking Trail also connects

this area on Ada Drive with the village of Ada, Grand Rapids, and the

village of Cascade.

East Village is also close by the expressway for easy access to many

different parts of our greater Grand Rapids area.  Large,

executive style homes with many amenities and extras are the rule in

this neighborhood. If you would like to start with a brand new house,

this may be the place for you to call home.
