    Does anyone know why the Riverfront Hotel at 131/Ann St. is being painted white and purple?

  3. 83 Monroe Center - City Flats Hotel

    I'm all for saving cool exterior signs, but I don't see how keeping the sign where it is would make sense. It's going to be called the City Flat's Hotel, so they'll want to have that sign front and center. Can't really envision their sign and the big red Fox sign working well together. Maybe if they took out the "s" and just called it the Fox Building? To me, though, "Fox's" implies the name of the establishment, like "Pistachios". Perhaps they could name the restaurant "Fox's" and then it would make sense to light it up. Or, perhaps they can relocate it inside in the lobby as part of a historical wall?

    New video on The Image Mill Facebook page that shows the cinema reel at night. Beautiful stuff. Check it out if you're heading out for a final look at the Top 25. Artist is Scott Hessels of Grand Rapids/Singapore. Entry is "The Image Mill". It's a zoetrope cinema reel that is powered by the waterfall outside of Ford Museum. Sustainable art! Nothing like seeing natural resources power something so peaceful and beautiful. If you feel like voting for this, you can text 27061 to 878787. Enjoy the art tonight!

    ah, that's right. still amazed they razed that other place! What a different world that must be to raze a 10,000+SF home for something else!

    If you go to Lyon Square tonight, then be sure to take the short walk over the bridge to check out the exhibits near the Ford. Scott Hessel's sustainable cinema reel, The Image Mill, is up and running and should be lit at night, too. He's got the zoetrope (original cinema wheel) going using only the waterfall to power the wheel (and the light that is powered by the movement of the wheel). Learn more about Scott's exhibit and see some terrific short videos on the piece here: or here:

    Whatever happened to the big compound that Rich DeVos owned on Macatawa? It was torn down, but did anything go up to replace it?

  11. Biggest House in metro GR

    Probably a lot of acreage with this parcel, perhaps even the water? House they're buying is owned by Maria's family. Beautiful setting over there.
