    Suburban Projects

    I haven't taken a picture of it because...why would I? BUT - yes - Von Maur is looking like a fully built store with a lot of the facade on. It's nothing jaw-dropping but it is a very attractive building. The REI is also pretty much built, and I'm sure the facade isn't far behind.

    Division. The corner will still be empty for future project(s).

    Keeler Building - 56 North Division

    Okay - someone help me out here - I'm 99.99% positive that the Keeler project was included in this round of applications and that it was their third time applying for credits. As I read this article it looks like for the third time they didn't get any LIHTC awards. The interesting thing is that I was talking to someone with insight on this project back when they applied the third time and they were confident they'd get at least something because they had changed their application/ratios/etc. but at least as I read this article I am left assuming they were turned down? https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/nine-west-michigan-affordable-housing-projects-get-tax-credits

    Hinman project - new 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

    Not yet. I walk past it every day and so I'll let y'all know here first when I see something change. Believe me...I've been anxiously watching for any sign...haha.

    Division / Wealthy and ICCF

    So this is a little obscure but I saw this pic on a friend’s Instagram post and figured this is about as close as we are going to get for now for a rendering of the seven story senior living center on Division. I’m sure it’ll change but I think it is pretty nice for the spot as is. Sorry for the odd pic - it’s about as good as we are going to get for now.
  9. Two things - first - I'm so glad you posted this because I took a picture this morning but didn't want to bog this thread down with my own posts every time I saw a change on the site...haha... Second - they actually decorated the Christmas tree and at night when you're driving through downtown it's actually really cool with it's lights and whatnot. I wasn't surprised to see a tree up there but I was surprised to see that they decorated it.

    New projects on the West Side

    I couldn't remember if this topic had its own thread or not, but the Consumers HQ(2? hehe) project is still a go and planning to break ground in the first quarter of 2019. It sure would be nice to see some site plans and renderings. https://www.grbj.com/articles/92186-consumers-spotlights-renewable-energy

    Keeler Building - 56 North Division

    Yeah we did! I'm "a man of the cloth" as they say so I took a role at Fountain Street Church just before deciding to sell. We loved owning and running the store but we are starters, so it isn't impossible that something else won't be in the works, though more likely partnering with other businesses/models. This town was so good to us for the two years we ran that store and so far it's been great to the new owner.
  12. I walk past this every day and it is actually really surprising how much changes even by the day. They really are moving along with it and I will try to do better about documenting it because it is just starting to get to the point where you can feel the excitement of having several new buildings suddenly here!

    Keeler Building - 56 North Division

    They FINALLY opened Fountain Street back up, as well as new sidewalk on Fountain Street. They have also removed the fencing and concrete barricade along Division and appear to be finishing that sidewalk stretch up as well. I work next door at Fountain Street Church and they've been telling us for MONTHS that they were going to be done any day now, so it is nothing short of a miracle that they are actually wrapping this project up. As for the actual Keeler? Who even knows...

    DeVos Family Headquarters (Old 5/3 building)

    I would love to see this become some kind of cool boutique hotel brand with a couple of cool bars/venue spaces. They could even have their guests use the MVP. I can dream.
