    Wealthy Street Mega Thread

    I totally agree that the outdoor/patio season is more along the April/May - October/November timeline. I do wish there were more activated outdoor spaces during the cooler months. I feel like when travelling abroad, you see more outdoor cafes, parks, etc ... being used in the cooler months.

    New projects on the West Side

    I loved that idea when it came out (maybe out of GR Forward or some other planning project). Now that we're seeing Bridge St. mature into a mostly-fully functioning neighborhood, it's hard to imagine parts of the street being closed, even on the weekends for any portion of time.

    That's the last I had heard too; the Little/Early Bird folks.

    MSU Biomedical Research Campus - Phase II

    Having worked in healthcare in West Michigan most of my career, I can't imagine McLaren trying to enter the Grand Rapids market. They don't have the name recognition in this area, regardless of quality of care and as MJLO pointed out, MSU has already chosen to partner with Spectrum.

    New projects in Monroe North

    I noticed all of the balcony lights on the other day too and thought immediately about summer bugs. I would imagine that the lights would be controlled by each room and the street is well lit, the lights might not be on all that much.

    The school is quite beautiful and durable, my Mom went there too. I'm not sure about the 2008 proposal but the Edge Flats proposal came through our NA right before my tenure ended and they seemed to have it pretty well together. I'm at work right now and don't have any of the details with me but I'll check my notes later.

    Heritage Hill / Cherry Hill / Wealthy Street Updates

    Couldn't agree more. The dining options in that area are pretty good already and now to add another type of cuisine, total bonus.

    The apartments inside the school look great! As a former student of St. James, I'm so glad to see this property repurposed. Looking forward to some more activity in that area.

    I think it's a move to show a stance on drug/opioid crisis while still being inventive and fun. Maybe they should've had a naming contest. Could've helped with softening the blow to people that loved the name 'crack fries'.

    Transit Updates for Greater Grand Rapids

    Having just been in East Lansing twice in the last month where they're everywhere, I find them to be a bit of a nuisance. They litter the sidewalks and are not regulated at all. That being said, I haven't used one myself but can see the appeal of them. The enforcement of the laws of where they should be used (street vs sidewalk) will be a nightmare.
