    Hinman project - new 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

    Duly noted. Further judgement will be reserved until project completion. I’ve always had a soft spot for flatiron buildings anyway.

    It doesn’t need to be 42 stories, but if it were a little bit taller, that building would be a baller.

    Village of Ada - Complete Makeover

    That moron Proos should be tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. That new design looks like a failed attempt at a “modern” church annex from the late 1970s. Just the kind of thing a dopey white bread traditional values type of sap would love. I was prepared to grudgingly accept that perhaps things in Ada might actually come together ok but clearly there are some still itching to screw the pooch and wreck the fabric of what is being created. I may not have loved it, but it was consistent. This building sucks.

    Why do I keep hearing Skee-Lo in my head when I look at that image?
  6. I was under the impression that this type of situation would motivate you to take the bus or ride your bike.

    Well some have cornices and some don’t. That’s some pretty risk-taking creativity for some West Michigan architects.

    I looked up “bleak” in the dictionary and it had this photo.

    GR is great but this list says we don’t even make the top 10... San Jose to Remain Nation’s Hottest Housing Market

    One of my pet peeves was getting rid of or revitalizing the old A&P warehouse along the S Curve that had the big cell tower on top. Glad to see that eyesore gone.

    Rowe Hotel- Olds Manor

    Would a developer snug the tower up against the freeway like that? Regardless, after announcing their 36 floor condo/hotel tower on the river it would probably get VE’d down to 5 or 6 floors by the time it’s built anyway. It is Grand Rapids after all.

    But, but, but... my beard is just filling in nicely and I just bought all this flannel [begins searching key words “tattoo removal”].
