  1. People talking about Grand Rapids

    Unless the average price is over a million to begin with like #2 Santa Maria, CA. Those darn $800K homes are becoming a real eyesore.

    Wait til we get confrontational Anti-Gentrifiers ...

    Has anyone seen these first hand? Anything local? Edit: Sovengard?

    Nice photo essay about Manistee on their web site ... Salt. Go figure.

    It didn't stop Seattle neighbor Boeing from relocating there. I'm giving them the edge simply because of this despite the corporate differences. Edit: Amazon has at least 2 .. maybe 3 HUGE fulfillment buildings either completed or under construction there. Not that they're putting them elsewhere.
  12. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    Yet despite those facts the city has no less than 54 high-rises either under construction or mapped. The most intriguing to me is the former McDonald's HQ in Oak Brook.

    What Chicago is offering. Damn!

    It hasn't gone unnoticed on Wall Street ... (disclaimer - I'm in the investment business)
  15. Grandville Castle Apartments

    How many more times do we need to listen to your dislike of it? Getting tiring.
