Went downtown getting some construction pictures on this beautiful Spring day (finally).
 

 

Is that your kitty splayed out on the couch?  :wub:

Yes, that is Jerry. He doesn't lay like that, so I just had to get a shot.

I can't remember if those utility poles are planned to be buried on Ionia by the market? Geez, they are ugly.

I drove by the Downtown Market this morning and they had a couple of big trucks doing something to the poles. I couldn't figure out if they were yanking them out or putting more in. Hopefully pulling them out. :)

Has there been any news about the brewery other than it was going to be delayed?

I didn't think it was being "fousted" on what it was going to be, if it went in.

If its the one I've heard, seems like a bit of a strange choice, but maybe the concept would work.

It was supposed to be announced back on March 18th. But apparently was bumped because of the way the lease was worded with the DDA?

Not to ruin the party, but anyone willing to bet that it is not New Holland?  I am beginning to sense a trend that many of the merchants will be opening branches of existing businesses. I hope we get some new concepts in the market as well.

New holland makes a lot of sense, seeing as the restraunt/brew space is huge.

Sure it will be a different concept, hope its not too close to their primary location.

Jippy- 

 

I think you'll get a mix of tenants. I think some of the established businesses will provide the draw that new businesses need. I think it is a win-win. I hope a lot of new businesses open, but I'd also love to see some existing business (Byron Center Meats?) move to the market as well.

I certainly don't see a brand new brewery opening, I imagine its a second location for an already established player. I'm hoping for New Holland, Arcadia (doubtful since they are working on a place in kzoo), Bells (also doubtful because they have a lot going on in house right now).

Brewery Vivant, Founders, Harmony also don't make a ton of sense and to a lesser degree Perrin due to their location.

Since New Holland has expressed desire for DT, it's still my hope and # 1 bet.

I am 100 percent positive it's New Holland. The wife of one of the owners has been around town talking about how they where opening up at the Market. :-)

And the downtown market director/president used to work for the city of holland and probably knows those guys well. Probably a pretty good bet. Maybe we should wait for the official word. :) (Suzanne Geha)

I bet it comes very soon.  The reason for the renegotiations of the lease terms IMO was for xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I edited that. We don't want to get a reputation around here for being spoilers. :)

My apologies.

Space looks really good, and so far, it doesn't look like anything has been VE'd.

No worries. It does look cool, I went on a tour about a month ago.

Now all we need is a butcher and a candle-stick maker:
