Grandville is a city in Kent County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 15,378 at the 2010 census and is part of the Grand Rapids metropolitan area. Grandville is one of the oldest suburbs of Grand Rapids, and was incorporated as a city in 1933.HistorySettlementGrandville was geographically an important place during the logging years in Michigan's history due to its location at the "river-bend" of the Grand River. It was important to have people there to make sure the logs did not jam up as the river turned north-west toward Grand Haven.IncorporationGrandville was incorporated into a city in 1933. Infrastructure and utilities were soon developed including new sewage disposal.By the 1980s due to the growth of the Grand Rapids metropolitan area following the early 1980s recession in the United States, Grandville began to experience even more growth. In 1987, color measurement and manufacturer X-Rite established its headquarters in the city a year after it went public, soon becoming one of the fastest businesses in Michigan.In the 1990s, the city was being eyed for larger development. In 1990, developers had begun eyeing a development of a new mall near the intersection of 44th Street and Ivanrest and met with the city for approval. In 1999, construction of Rivertown Crossings Mall, a mall with 1.25 million in storefronts, was finally completed.
