  1. French/American Bakery... So glad to see this building come to life...that was such a dead zone. https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/french-american-bakery-planned-for-mixed-use-wealthy-street-redevelopment
  2. They should just put a hot dog cart in that parking lot…
  3. Yep. I was seeing it from the right angle. It’s the west side towers that threw me at first.
  4. MiBiz has a rendering. I can't figure it out, though. Look like it doesn't really go along Monroe except for a part between Brassworks and the hotel and we are looking at the back of BrassWorks? I assume all the tall "ghost" buildings are across the river and not real? https://mibiz.com/sections/health-care/spectrum-health-details-plans-for-8-story-office-complex-near-downtown-gr?fbclid=IwAR3JZeVHWYOF8lIA_YEAJZsig7YpNVQcg9Lo7Twv5d21gLZ_HvfTakF0dB0 I assume there's more in the PC agenda packet but I don't see it online. A site plan and Monroe elevation would help. This looks simil
  5. I thought the same thing...I was hoping there was tower info in the article. That's a ton of capital...wow!
  6. I was about to comment that. I wonder if they would buy Kale's and combine it into something bigger...that would be cool. Like cstoneparty said, keep El Sombrero on the ground floor. =)
  7. Looks like some new plans and a start date of late April. Hope this version actually starts. I think it looks like a huge upgrade... https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/lyon-square-redesign-would-add-event-space-garden-along-grand-river/
  8. No kidding, I liked it so much I sent it to my bro-in-law who lives in Virginia. Nice work, @sonic!
  9. I agree. We went DT last weekend to eat "out" and see the art. If it wasn't for a chance to walk the skywalks and warm up for a few minutes, we wouldn't have stayed down there nearly as long. Same for other times during rain. We'll always walk outside unless the weather forces us to the skywalks - I would assume most are that way except people who come DT for one event and then just leave right away.
  10. I saw that MiBiz is reporting that Spectrum bought bought Brassworks for $25 million and is scaling back some of the project. I don't subscribe to the online edition so all I've got is a headline for you all. =)
  11. Fuel is just a regular restaurant, not a brewery or distillery but it is a cool place. The lights and development are the first step in hopefully making your post in the future say “I stopped in Spring Lake” instead of “I drove through Spring Lake.”
  12. No brewery that I know of...what are you referring to? New steakhouse/bakery/antiques store, though. You need to drive thru at night now. Spring Lake Sparkle is the new thing. So busy out there last night! All the music, food, shopping for the event is on hold until next year, of course.
  13. I'm very eager to see it in person. There's something about that space that when we'd go there, I just felt a world away from home. Hope the new place feels the same!
  14. According to this article in Local Spins, https://localspins.com/grand-rapids-20-monroe-live-the-bob-entertainment-complex-go-up-for-sale-local-spins/ they were planning on selling the real estate back in March but the closing fell through due to COVID. So, this was the plan anyway. There's actually a really cool video series about several West MI venues there, too.
