  1. they could always make all this a reality: http://www.oakdaleneighbors.org/BostonSquare.html
  2. can someone put together a map that overlays a color over all the actual property owned by Amplify GR in this process? also, is the Azzar Store Equipment building THAT Azzar of the Keeler building fame? If so... that will be a difficult negotiation to buy up the whole neighborhood.
  3. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    I would encourage everyone to go back to my first post that started this thread. It is crazy how many of the buildings I posted are now something completely different.
  4. Kregel Publications - Renovation? Wealthy Street.

    So no progress on this project eh?
  5. New Home For Opera Grand Rapids

    It is actually Living Stones Christian School that moved in to the old Hillcrest school, they used to be in the SEAC on Fuller and Sigsbee
  6. LINC Southtown Projects

    an old photo of the intersection of madison and Hall (taken from madison looking north) The building above on the right with the large circle with the eagle in it is the LA insurance building. Guess these 2 are getting torn down? Photos courtesy of PPWIII
  7. LINC Southtown Projects

    I heard a rumor they were taking over the Kregel building project as well (733 Wealthy)
  8. Hall Street Bakery - SE corner Hall and Fuller

    it is discussed here: http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php/topic/51588-southeast-side-construction/page-2#entry1273553
  9. The Churches of Grand Rapids

    I am always find it interesting what doesn't get people's attention on this forum. I looked to see if this was mentioned but i don't think it was. First United Methodist is losing their tower because it was too expensive to maintain: http://www.mlive.com/living/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2013/07/first_united_methodist_churchs.html been going on for a while now but guess no one seemed to mention it.
  10. Southeast Side Construction

  11. Southeast Side Construction

    Construction is underway inside the future Hall Street Bakery - dumpster is full and new insulation etc. is going in.
  12. GR Walks App

    Downtown is a little difficult for me to wrap my head around. I have thought of doing: downtown churches tour downtown public art tour downtown architecture tour but all three require a lot more research than some neighborhoods and topics. I have some resources but hope work with either the museum, or local universities to help with the research (this is just a volunteer project for me that I do in my free time)
  13. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    So This building has been pretty much the same for the past 5 years. When I took this photo the other day, there was a guy working on something in there. the inside has some tools but is pretty cluttered. It seems like there would be some serious potential for such a big building in a prime location (especially with the easy access for delivery trucks) 2007 photo: So what's the deal with this building?
  14. GR Walks App

    No printable downloads yet (and some of the photo licensing prohibits it but i still hope to make them available soon)
  15. GR Walks App

    Hey planeteers, for the past 3 years I have been working on a local walking tours app. I have two tours finished (Heritage Hill North and Eastown & East Hills) and thought I would let you all know that it is finally available for download! (and for free at that!) The tours show a lot of before and after historical photos of buildings around the city and tells the story of the people and places. I am working on more tours and open to suggestions if you have any! Here is the site: http://www.grwalks.com
