Hermitage at Diamond Inc has been formally chartered as a nonprofit organization with the purpose of supporting and sustaining the renovation of an historic church in the East Hills Neighborhood located at the corner of Hermitage Street and Diamond Avenue.
The newly formed Hermitage at Diamond board is committed to ensuring that the project is inclusive and representative of the many cultures, communities, and individuals that the surrounding neighborhood touches as restoration and renovation for the adaptive reuse of the building progresses.
Community outreach will be central to the board’s efforts to develop the property and its associated creative arts programming, and the board is actively seeking additional participation from people from the neighborhood and surrounding area.
Hermitage Partners, the LLC which currently owns the property, is in the process of transitioning ownership of the property to the nonprofit group as efforts to restore, renovate, and repurpose the building move forward.
We are excited to take this next important step to ensuring that this landmark historic structure is utilized for its full potential to benefit the lives of people living in the neighborhood and throughout Grand Rapids.
