    It is the 10th floor. There are 6 main LED flood lights hooked to a sound system that was taken from Sony's recording studios in NYC.  Thankfully both of the condos sharing walls have been empty for 95% of the past 2 years.

        Maybe the reason they didn't at the $15M roof (man, that is an expensive roof!).     The size of that crane out there is as impressive visually as the cost of using it no doubt.
  • New census definition puts Metro Grand Rapids at 1,000,000+

    Good to see positive numbers for GR again. I think we end up talking about downtown's population a lot because more than any part of the city it's the place we all have in common. To me, though, the bigger story of late has been the posi...
  • GR: The city of 12 stories
    Yesterday, 07:40 PMby GRDadof3in Grand Rapids(34Replies)
    That's not what I recall - my understanding is that the developers wanted to secure a lot of tenants prior to building and couldn't.  They were really going after Varnum in particular.  When the firm renewed its lease with Br...

    As I recall the city struck down the project because it was too high for the width of the streets.  This was proposed right before Michigan went into it's decade long recession so i'm not sure it would have been built anyway....

    Just think if a miracle had occurred and Jack Buchanan had built his Calder Plaza hotel.       http://www.urbanplan...ercalder-plaza/   Now that was fairly architecturally boring and a wee bit ugly, but at least...

    I think Millennials will only want to live downtown for so long. Once majority of them are in their 30s, they will spring for the suburbs like their parents did. I give it 12 years before the numbers move away from downtown. It's hip a...

    what GR does not have a lot of and certainly not recently is high density lower income apartments like 4-8 story basic block buildings I know it might not be economical to build them downtown but theres certainly areas of town that would...
