  1. Who's Done This?

    I won't tell if you don't. Not exactly chamber of commerce promotional material.
  2. Redevelopment along 28th Street

    Before everyone starts condemning this project don't forget this is right down the street from the castle. Obviously it will inhabited by residents without taste which should make this project an instant success. In fact the more criticism I hear the more optimistic I become.
  3. Highway and Road Construction Updates

    I-196 work on the river:
  4. How will the downtown apartment market shake out?

    Yes and it bodes well for the castle!
  5. How will the downtown apartment market shake out?

    'Arena Place’s 100 units are completely leased.' And here I thought some of the architectural critics would influence their leasing success.
  6. The Grand River?! You mean GR has a River?

    The current level of the Grand River is a little over 3 feet. The record crest in 2013 was nearly 22 feet. How can you build any structure on it that isn't designed for retention yet has permanence and function? Don't forget ice.
  7. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Call it crazy but we should start our own investment pool. Considering the knowledge here we should break even at least lol.
  8. 68th and Patterson

    I didn't notice anything.
  9. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    A wage issue which extends to the building trades. Pay them more and watch the term 'shortage' used less IF you can convince them to come back or stick around. The irony isn't lost ... higher wages mean higher home prices and less affordability UNLESS wages keep pace or exceed home prices.
  10. 68th and Patterson

    462K of industrial on spec huh? You weren't kidding when reporting vacancies among the lowest in the country. That M-6/M-37 area is becoming quite the commercial region. Makes me wonder what it would be like had M-6 never been built and whether Switch's presence nearby had anything to do with it.
  11. 68th and Patterson

    Large commercial structure going up on the east side of Patterson half way between M-6 and 68th. Anyone know what's going there?
  12. Converting to special events. Seems to be the trend.
  13. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Thanks for the reminder. I took it once, just me on board.
  14. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Is it actually enforced effectively?
