Here are 10 things you can look forward to when the Downtown Market opens tomorrow:

1. Over 200 free parking spots! That’s right, an adjacent lot will have room for over 200 vehicles to park for no cost at all.

ArtPrize brings a lot of attention to what we have to offer, opening venues from simple mom and pop restaurants to huge commercially known venues like the DeVos Performance Hall. But what does that mean for you, how could it help you sell your home?
