El Dorado Condos – Downtown Grand Rapids Condos

El Dorado Condos – Heritage Hill Condos, Downtown Grand Rapids

El Dorado Condos

El Dorado condos are a lovely condo conversion that are located at 516 Lyon St NE, in the Heritage Historic District of downtown Grand Rapids. These Heritage Hill condos were developed in 2007. Formerly the Bachelder Apartments, this brick and stucco building was built in 1910. Nine years later a second building was built right next door and sometime after that, a third building was built in-between and to the rear. The two original buildings plus the third, were connected, forming the distinctive “U” that we see today.

Some of the attractive features of the El Dorado condos are the original architectural elements. There were porches that were torn down which were rebuilt of cedar. The interior features the original hardwood floors which have been refinished, the original cut-tile flooring and the windows have been replaced with double-hung wood frames to comply with historic requirements. Out of the 13 original condos, only 4 remain. We have two – 1 bedroom condos with 770 square feet and two – 2 bedroom condos at slightly over 1100 square feet. One of the two bedroom condos offer a garage and all condos come with off-street parking.

El Dorado Condominiums

I’ve toured these recently and they are spacious, open floor plan with good sized bedrooms. The all-new kitchens will feature concrete counter tops, Stainless appliances and washer-dryer unit. Each first floor unit has a private patio opening onto an inner courtyard, and screened porches. A balcony off the kitchen and a sun room are features in each second floor unit.

Another big draw to these condos is the location. Located between College and Union on Lyon puts El Dorado condos not only in the lovely community of Heritage Hill, but also within walking distance to the Grand Rapids Medical Mile. This condo would make an ideal home to someone working at any of the medical facilities here.
