  1. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Can't imagine how chronic the situation could be without a record number retiring and leaving the state for good now.
  2. Beer

    Appears Brass Ring Brewing is open. Anyone been there yet? http://www.brassringbrewing.com/
  3. What a difference less than 2 years makes. May 2016 article about skepticism over viability of new Class A construction. https://mibiz.com/item/23660-proposed-12-weston-office-tower-project-stalls-developer-to-explore-other-options
  4. Nice the developer sees a demand for Class A office. Maybe there's hope yet for that empty hole at Division and Weston.
  5. Predictions for the coming year

    Your link doesn't disprove my prediction. GR departure and GR arrival could remain the same.
  6. Predictions for the coming year

    Amtrak continues its once a day service to/from Chicago starting at 6 am and not arriving back til 11:39 pm. Tough commute.
  7. Grandville Castle Apartments

    There was never any credible information to suggest the development was in financial trouble, just anecdotal which to naysayers was enough to get the spin mongering going. The lack of any activity could of simply been the holidays and weather. The developer might have even given everyone more time off. Shocking I know.
  8. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    From Tucson in May GRR is $30 more 1-way than MDW. $192 vs $222. Not bad and a relatively short layover.
  9. Suburban Projects

    I was told here that the orchards are toxic among other reasons.
  10. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Good question, every place I've been to you have to furnish a ticket or boarding pass to get thru security.
  11. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Another record year - http://www.grbj.com/articles/89832-ford-airport-books-best-ever-year
  12. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    Yep, considering its frequently touted as having one of the hottest real estate and employment markets in the country, high on quality of living and healthcare, speaks volumes to its desirability. As far as gerrymandering don't get me started - http://www.chicagonow.com/getting-real/2011/11/illinois-congressional-district-4-worst-case-of-gerrymandering/
  13. Grandville Castle Apartments

    The more gripes about a project the more encouraged I become thinking it will be a success. GR Urban Planet 101.
  14. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Shortly after posting maybe they got a better offer on the ground floor of the Castle!
  15. RFP - 201 Market

    The view of the ice flows creating havoc would be unparalleled though.
