    Digging a bit more... looks like LINC is doing this one as well. Since they're also doing Garfield Lofts, that would be two projects for them on the same corner.

    Burton Heights

    Just stumbled across this SLU request: https://inspections.grcity.us/CitizenAccess/Cap/CapDetail.aspx?Module=Planning&TabName=Planning&capID1=18CAP&capID2=00000&capID3=00WTZ&agencyCode=GRANDRAPIDS&IsToShowInspection= Looks like Community Recovery (in the old Garfield Park Reformed Church building, NW corner of Burton and Jefferson) wants to build a new apartment building in their parking lot. Seems like a great use of the space, IMHO. Also, the former United Methodist church at Burton and Francis will be demolished soon—the demolition permit is in process. That is where the Garfield Lofts project is going.

  5. My understanding (hearsay) is that the city lost access to Parkmobile sooner than they were anticipating, necessitating the rushed migration to MOTU.

    The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    The City of GR has produced an excellent video to promote the upcoming community meetings that will discuss four of the Housing Now proposals:

    Kingdom Square

    This part caught my eye: I'm always sad to loose green space, but this lot has long been under-utilized, and hasn't (to my knowledge) been open to the public. So I think this could be a good thing.

    Keeler Building - 56 North Division

    The problem isn't the building—it's the owner. Razing the structure wouldn't help with that. Hopefully the city is levying fines on Azzar for the repairs.

    Yes—see the link in the first post of this thread.

    Blue 35 - 35 Oakes - Heartside Manor/Merten Hotel

    That's an awesome location. I took a panorama from that deck back in 2015 when my office was in Blue35: https://photos.app.goo.gl/p3irbYu6gS1if34u8

    Seymour Square at Burton and Eastern

    A few things I'm aware of: Roosevelt Economy Market LLC is planning to go in the old Miller Ice Cream (more recently Happy's Pizza) location. That will be a nice addition to the neighborhood. A dental office wants to open at 2029 Eastern Ave SE (not sure on the status—I think they would need a zoning variance) China Yi Wang lost their lease. Not sure if it was due to a typical reason, or if the owner has bigger plans for the building.

    Ford picks Grand Rapids for “City of Tomorrow” Project

    Same here. I don't feel any less autonomous when I leave my vehicle at home.

    New 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

    Permit is described as "10 Ionia Soil Samples". Looks like they needed that particular permit because they're tearing up some sidewalk, but I'd assume that they wouldn't be limited to just that spot. Looks like they're taking samples across the property.

    New 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

    Looked like they were doing a lot more than a single sidewalk square when I walked by this afternoon.
