  1. Transit Updates for Greater Grand Rapids

    I'm reminded of this video. Disclaimer, the journalist here is part of the Conservative media, but it showed an organized protest in which the ATU was involved (or not really) and it was really pathetic. None of the union members who were supposed to show ever showed but one or two, they basically got some gullible college kids to protest for them, and then try to block buses from getting into central station. I've not seen much that gives me a good impression of the ATU. But perhaps it was all from the couple members who give it a bad impression.
  2. Warner Tower - Lyon and Ottawa

    Spotted from grcc today
  3. Grandville Castle Apartments

    I tap into my childhood excitement every time I drive by it.
  4. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Is that a payphone I see? Does it still work?
  5. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    I'm beginning to fear the arched windows on the other building may have gotten the same treatment.
  6. RFP - 201 Market

    Guys, guys, calm down. It'll be a recreation of Burg Hohenzollern to compete with the Grandville Castle.
  7. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    I haven't seen any plan of theirs suggesting that they're going to be replicating the top of the NE building. And iirc, the plans have already been revealed for the collapsed corner, and it's not glass. Take a look in the left of the photo. It's paneling not unlike other buildings from the past decade. And the flat top on the NE building with only a very basic horizontal cornice being given to both buildings.
  8. What about the former Arcade next to Flannagan's? Just need to relocate the dumpsters and give the pavement a good wash.
  9. Beer

    Hideout is probably best for their Mead.
  10. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    Better covered up than torn down, especially considering the era it happened.
  11. Martha's Vineyard

    That is absolutely fantastic
  12. Next year is going to be an exciting year, like 10 years ago. This, Hinman Tower, Icon on Bond II, Monroe North Hotel... pretty exciting.
  13. New projects in Monroe North

    I believe this was the most recent rendering we'd seen.
  14. Grandville Castle Apartments

    It was gone before my time. I wish I could go back in time just to experience it.
  15. Grandville Castle Apartments

    There is no "German Restaurant" in the metro at all that I know of. If they manage to open one due to this project I will be incredibly pleased. The nearest one I can think of is in Middleville.
