Grand River felt Flat Iron was a home run

Ryan Wolthuis, left, and Dave Blossey of Grand River Bank were pleased to work with Locus Development on financing for the Flat Iron renovations.

The youngest bank in the city decided to finance the historic renovation of one of the oldest buildings in the city. The collective age of the trio of downtown structures that make up today’s Flat Iron building borders on 400 years, give or take a decade, while Grand River Bank just turned two a few weeks ago.
