  1. RFP - 201 Market

    I mean in fairness - we haven't seen anything yet and none of this is saying that it is ALL low-income and ALL parkland with NO retail or great design. I'm sad that we don't have anything to see you BUT I'm also not worried; if I'm being frank I thought that this developer's portfolio was the most interesting in terms of mixed use projects, high-rises, etc. So...here's to hoping we will see SOMETHING sooner than later and not getting to worked up in the meantime.
  2. Suburban Projects

    The church is adding on... snore.
  3. RFP - 201 Market

    HAHA! I thought the same thing (mostly jokingly) but almost posted this as well.
  4. Village of Ada - Complete Makeover

    Of the many interesting things going on in Ada, it sounds like they're preparing plans for a pretty sizable "downtown" civic building with a library, community center, and maybe a market space of some form? I'm glad to hear that they're at least including public spaces/uses in this project and it isn't just a fancy shopping center of sorts.
  5. New projects on the West Side

    It's on the city website in the Development Center.
  6. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Great news! Both that you might be bringing in something pretty great and that you might be able to do the same for a couple more Uptown buildings. RE: Woosah - they are going where Wealthy at Charles was. They've got some really great ideas for the garden area!
  7. New projects on the West Side

    Everyday I walk by Black Heron and wonder if/when Jolly Pumpkin is actually going to go in here - well wait no more! I see a permit was filed yesterday to start renovation and work!!! I'm so happy about this. Now to see what happens with the Red Lion spot!
  8. New projects on the West Side

    I have seen a lot going on over there - drilling, blue-shirt-men standing around and meeting there, etc. I have been wondering what might be going here and am hopeful it is congruent with the other evolving projects!
  9. New projects in Monroe North

    So I'm confused - is it 272 or 172? In the drawing it starts at 100' at ground level - weird.
  10. Did anyone else see the news that Grand Action is likely sunsetting on December 31st. I'm not really surprised and honestly it seems like a pretty organic move after 25 years of positioning the city. It sure would be cool if they did some kind of big project or announcement or SOMETHING to mark their retirement.
  11. RFP - 201 Market

  12. 42 story building coming to downtown GR

    Yes, they are public and typically the minutes end up in the meeting packs a few weeks later. There hasn't been a meeting in a few weeks so hopefully there will some put out today or next Friday. I'd like to see if there is any info in there as well.
  13. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    I thought about this as soon as I heard about it, but honestly I see this being something Detroit would have a HUGE shot at. Microsoft has new offices opening downtown D and there is a ton of momentum around office space development and recruitment downtown on behalf of Bedrock. Obviously I'd love GR to land something big but I'm equally happening seeing Detroit come into its own. Speaking of which, get over there and check it out if you get the chance; it's overwhelming how much is going on downtown!
  14. They (WMCAT) have an updated rendering on their website where it is three and slightly different design.
  15. Gaslight Village

    At least the first two a punny - I don't understand Wok & Mortar. Is it a play on Rock & Mortar? Maybe I'm just sensitive because I own one of the aforementioned businesses hahaha.
