  1. Grandville Castle Apartments

  2. Grandville Castle Apartments

    I don't think it's intended to remain grey concrete and should eventually be painted white. Some of the elements around the bottoms of the turrets have already been painted white and the difference between that and the grey concrete is striking. Once painted white, that should help with the awkward window frames as well.
  3. Phase 2 also looks shorter, but it actually isn't. They made it twice as wide as it was before, and made it more uniform rather than visually cut in half vertically, making it feel like another 12-storey squat rectangle instead of a tower.
  4. Looks like Wood has some newer renderings. Looks like the strings of lights over the courtyard are out :C
  5. New projects on the West Side

    It looks like a power plant structure with balconies coming out of it.
  6. GVSU Downtown Development

    Supposedly early this past summer GVSU decided it was imperative to begin pumping concrete down into the ground below its building by the Blue Bridge, and has been doing so all summer. It was speculated that it was related to a very old mine below the river there, and the flood a few years back caused some problems with it. Curious as to what was happening that prompted the action. The likelihood of it being related to the mine seems higher, as a sinkhole has now opened up exactly where the mineshaft entrance was. The gypsum mine was closed up in 1903.

  7. The Grand River?! You mean GR has a River?

    I don't see how that would become a problem again because the canals that diverted water away from the river to be used for those factories no longer exist -- they've been filled in.
  8. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    I do where I work. Haven't heard it once.
  9. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    I don't think anybody really says "sick" anymore. That's like, last decade. Or maybe 90s.
  10. Grand Rapids Auto Parts- 1810 Turner NW

    I was thinking that this morning southbound on Plainfield just north of Leonard.
  11. 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.
  12. Warner Tower - Lyon and Ottawa

    Spotted from grcc today
  13. Grandville Castle Apartments

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

    Is that a payphone I see? Does it still work?
  15. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    I'm beginning to fear the arched windows on the other building may have gotten the same treatment.
