  1. Well a little seattle is rubbing off on GR: http://www.grbj.com/articles/76769-new-development-on-ionia-to-get-underway-soon kinda bland 5-8 story condo/retail projects.
  2. Van Andel Arena Expansion?

    It doesn't look that bad.
  3. ArtPrize - Grand Rapids

    The event is about strange red fruit?
  4. People talking about Grand Rapids

    No one ever does that. Ever.

    He's Dave effing Ramsey, people here in GR have such a man crush on the guy that he gets treated very well when he's here. There are times when Dave Ramsey has come up in conversation and I thought I was hearing about the person's prom date or something.
  6. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Amtrak was a conglomeration of private railroads who were in such dire straits, they make the GM situation look benign. I don't think you can privatize passenger rail anymore in this country, doing so would just bury the train deeper into obscurity even now with fuel uncertainty at an all time high. What is needed is investment in high speed trains. Right now we still chug along at half the speed of European and Japanese passenger rail. Building an infrastructure for 200 mph+ trains would drastically impact their ridership. Heck if I could get on a train in downtown GR that got me to chicago in a third of the time it took by car, and paying similar to the cost of fuel to do it, Trains would skyrocket in popularity.
  7. The Watering Hole

    That deserves an Oh SNAP! I suppose this is expected of them it seems. Perhaps when we start mining landfills for precious metals the copper will finally get used.

    Michigan is looking more and more like it'll have it's own little Kansas City/St. Louis thing going on in a few years if those commentators are right.
  9. More Sculptures downtown

    So the first five are considered "commissioned" at this point, and the remaining 20 are to be determined If I read the article right? I'm kind of surprised to see the first be Lyon, he was kind of a thorn, known to stick it in Louis Campau's craw.
  10. Gallery on Fulton

    77 Monroe Center
  11. Gallery on Fulton

    That was a pretty nice building in the "diamond" of Louis, Ionia, and Fulton.
  12. Grand Rapids Then and Now

    Were the racial divisions added when the map was made, or did someone go in and write them on the map? While I understand it's an old map, having those distinctions on there is really awkward now.
  13. Hey, what's that?

    Thanks! for some reason my head was drawing a blank. That really stinks.
  14. Hey, what's that?

    Anyone know whats going on at the corner of Oakes and Market? Last week it was a giant hole surrounded by a fence, now it's filled with sand, surrounded by a giant fence
