  1. I hope the reconfigure the light at that intersection the time for cars to get through that intersection is not long enough I can imagine with people entering and exiting the ramp will get alot worse.
  2. Anyone hear the story about Michigan cutting its subsides for Amtrak for West Michigan?
  3. That corner looks so much better! . Wow what a little paint will do! It's nice this comapny is taking alot of empty run down spaces and reusing them.
  4. Hey he is the reason I got my first ever car! Very nice guy and reasonable , this was my first time purchasing a car he got me in one without credit history at the age of 20. The car was nice and ran great, was suprised bacause I was expecting the sleezy type of salesman you always hear about. Sorry to go off topic. And no I dont work for the company
  5. Well for me finding a spot seems all but impossible when im catching a movie or going to one of the restaurants nearby. It wouldnt be that bad in the summer but winter time its unpleasant. Now that Jo Anns is at Centerpointe i thought I read somewhere they were going to consolidate there stores to they location this true?
  6. Once B&N goes in I will not be visiting Woodland anylonger. The parking situation at the mall is horrible and looks like it will only get worse.
  7. Anyone read on Chris's blog that River City Slims is closed? Thats a big blow to that area I visited once and was very impressed so this is suprising.
  8. I think there should be another option to shop here in Grand Rapid I was at Woodland Saturday night and I have never had such a hard time finding a parking spot in my life and its like that everytime i go to this particular mall now. Who's idea was it to take away from the parking to put in the plaza between on the border and Red Robin? I never see anyone sitting there spring summer fall or winter just seems like a waste and with Barnes and Noble moving in its only gonna get worse i think people in Gr are looking for other options as far as shopping other than Woodland or Rivertown so i think a lifestyle center would work it might just take away business from the other two but a little competition is good right?
  9. Thanks guys well im looking for a loft similar to what I have now. I mainly was looking downtown because I was hoping to finally ditch my car since I have to drive everywhere here but I dont have to be downtown a trendy neighborhood would work just as well. To be honest id take my chances with the job market there than here in Michigan where I have been laid off for 3 months and unemployment approaching 10%.
  10. Just had a question for you Chalotteans im form Michigan thinking about a move to Charlotte next spring because of the bad economy here and lack of work just curious if it is affordable to live downtown Charlotte?
  11. I totally agree I went to see a nice family movie a few guys were bored decided to talk loud throughout the movie so that everyone could hear when someone asked them to quiet down they proceded to swear in front of kids. Studio 28 I stuck to going there only because i grew up going there but the place really went down hill. However still sad to see a landmark like this close. I wonder how this will affect some of the other business in the area. I believe Applbees had the dinner and a move special.
  12. [im confused to why this ramp has to be so large also Most people are going to Lansing, Chicago, Detroit anyways. It looks to me like they are spending just for a wow factor. There is no reason for a ramp this size for an airport this size.
  13. Wow the compeitition between these two facilities is really heating up Now that Metro has the room to grow. Does anyone else see these as suburbs vs the city Metro keeps saying people don't want to tavel all the way downtown for services at spectrum and spectrum seems to be trying to consolidate everything downtown.
  14. I agree it will look horrible with two turning lanes onto I-96, however I think it is necessary. Many times on my way home from class traffic is backed up all the way to Michigan people going westbound on I-96.
  15. Tax cuts from the state were approved today maybe consturction will start soon?
  16. Village of Knapps Crossing was approved today according to Fox 17 news. Now the race is on for who get the tenants necessary first to go forward.
  17. I dont think the city would have let cvs get away with something like they did in eastown downtown the area is too important. I think a pharmacy downtown would be a great idea with all the medical facilities going up on Michigan its odd that there isn't a major pharmacy in the core. One pharmacy on all of medical mile
  18. This needs to go back to the drawing board. Does the UICA even have the funding raised yet to even think of a possible move? Its undestandable that projects will hit a snag every now and then but if he cannot get this doen then let someone else have at it or look for other tenants.
  19. Are you kidding they are going to tear those down for a car wash! I used to work with a girl that stayed in the blue victorian house next to the gas station and have been in that particular one and its very well maintained and will be a shame to lose such interesting housing stock for the sake of a gas station. Well hopefully the owner will put some money that money into fixing up that gas station its riddle with pot holes and really seems out of place for the area.
  20. I believe this courthouse serves Northern Kent county Citys such as Rockford, Cedar Springs exct. If anything it should be built in the community it will serve which is up that way.
  21. Why is this project dependant on only the UICA? Isnt there some other space for retail in this project? Pinning everything on a non profit organization that barely makes any money is risky id say I think the developer should try seeking out more than one option for this space.
  22. At Leonard Fuller The Starbucks has finally broken ground in front of Family fare should be interesting how two coffe houses do on the same corner.
  23. Speaking of lights has anyone gone down Grandvill ave where the new streetscape project was done recently? The new decorative lights are nice similarly to whats downtown. However on the opposite side putting those fixtures on the wooden poles looks incredibly tacky.
  24. I really wish Meijer would do something about the 28th and Kzoo store everytime i go in there they dont have the products the other Meijer stores have due to small size of the store im told everytime. Why dont they expand across the street where dj's and the church sit? With the alpine store rehabbed and the Plainfield store being redone what other store is there to fix or remodel except the 28th and Kzoo store.
