  1. If you showed me that picture and said, "this old hotel is slated for demolition" I would totally believe you.
  2. ^bump^ Fun Friday Fact: If you know where to look, there is already a castle in the Grandville/Jenison/Hudsonville area...
  3. I avoid the Beltline like the plague. Is it really that awful? Now I'm intrigued. I may have to brave the unprecedented concentration of moronic drivers that frequent that stretch and have myself a look-see.
  4. You know what would do well there? A bait and tackle shop serving all the bridge fisherman.
  5. Oh great. A superfund site right in the middle of downtown.
  6. Damn, that's right. Short-term gain, long-term loss as a result of desperation. What a shame. Sears is really circling the drain at this point, aren't they? ... and before you start feeling at all sorry for Sears the corporation (I feel bad for the local employees who will end up out of work) read this article: David Vs. Goliath - Stealing Innovation
  7. I tell you what, any time I passed through that Sears at Woodland I felt like I was in time warp. It's a shame but not a surprise. They should spin the Craftsman part off into its own (much smaller) stand-alone store.
  8. The first rendering at least has some uniqueness to its design (not that "uniqueness" is always a winner). The current iteration is kind of a yawner. It looks fairly typical of the kind of hotel building you'd see at various highway interchanges in multiple metropolitan areas across the country.
  9. Now THAT'S a ringing endorsement if I've ever heard one.... To Joe's point, so we've gone from this to this. I would ask, which fits the character of North Monroe better?
  10. A bummer but not a surprise. American Seating has been sort of aimlessly floundering for the last few years or so trying to figure out what it wants to be. I hope this new focus helps them reinvigorate the business.
  11. Use the roofs. More green space, less homeless. It's a win/win.
  12. Welp, the Beltline won't be the only major artery suffering congestion from the addition of Chick-fil-a to that area.
  13. I wonder how much of the motivation driving Woodland to be more upscale (in addition to the good points in previous posts) is the arrival of Tanger Outlets in the area?
