The Groves offers world-class space for education, business, research, and technology in a wooded site that preserves the beauty of the natural environment. Nearly one-sixth of the 248-acre park has been designated open space, with walking paths, ponds, and plant and bird sanctuaries. Just outside is immediate access to Interstate 94 - the region's busiest and fastest growing business corridor. The I-94 interchange, which serves The Groves, was recently expanded to accommodate the area's flourishing commercial/industrial base.
With a diverse business and industrial base and a prime location, Southwest Michigan enjoys a strong economy.
The Groves is located halfway between Detroit and Chicago, close to I-94, US-131, I-69, and I-80 and within 300 miles of ten major markets.
The region benefits from a well-trained work force and from government, education, and business leaders committed to continued growth.
Western Michigan offers excellent public and private school systems and benefits from the influences of higher education, both from our local colleges and university, and from the region's strongest ties to Michigan State University, The University of Michigan, and the University of Notre Dame.
Michigan is beautiful year round. Athletes and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy the state's four-season climate and Kalamazoo's proximity to Lake Michigan - just 45 minutes away. Indoor activities are plentiful too, in a community particularly supportive of the arts, music, theater and other cultural pursuits.
