Tenant Improvement


Grand Rapids, MI

Malamiah Juice Bar had outgrown their space at the Downtown Market and were interested expanding their Hours of Operation, Menu, and overall ability to serve the community.  Now located in the heart of Studio Park, Malamiah has the distinct honor of being one of the first African American owned restaurants in the Grand Rapids Downtown Core.  The new space includes much needed prep area, easy access to their walk-in cooler and a manager’s office – all components of the business that were unavailable in their previous location.  A bright, naturally lit dining room includes ample customer seating and a space dedicated specifically to the community’s children.  Located on the Plaza at Studio Park, patrons may choose to enjoy their juice, coffee or salad inside our outside on a heated promenade or in the plaza grass.
