  1. I took a very similar picture of powerlines on Lake Michigan Drive the other day.
  2. I don't really know if this is the "real real deal" or not, because there have been so many updates and non-updates on this project, but on the Design Team agenda for the 28th, there's an item for a $35 Million project to restore the rapids in the Grand River. Presenters are Matt Chapman from Grand Rapids Whitewater and Quinn Donnelly of RiverRestoration.org. (link added to see their portfolio of similar projects). Timeline in the packet:
  3. I'm both easily amused and hard to impress at the same time.
  4. That is one of the most fascinating things I've read on this site in a long time. Where would one find this amenity?
  5. All of that metal framing they're putting up must be for dust control or something?
  6. There is a lot of work going on with the Sears store but it actually doesn't look like demolition.
  7. Here's the other ICCF project on Wealthy.
  8. Speaking of large apartment complexes, here's the one on the East Beltline near 3 Mile/Spectrum Health. Clubhouse and several buildings underway: Goes all the way through to the next street East which is Dunnigan. This is looking from Dunnigan East, Spectrum Health is the building to the right. Another shot from Dunnigan, just looks like massive piles of sand. The treeline way off is along the Beltline.
  9. Damn that cuts. I remember in college when I talked about moving to Grand Rapids, someone said I should look at Ramblewood because they said it looked like a State Park with all of the woods and winding roads. That was in the early 90's. I definitely remember when Rivertown Parkway was a two-lane road that jogged eerily to the South for a few miles South of 44th Street through empty fields. That was only about 20 years ago.
  10. It's actually looking better than the rendering. Quite a few more contours to the facade. Although maybe the recessed portions on the actual product will be the recessed patios in the rendering? Either way, looks good.
  11. I have a picture for that! (I took a bunch the other day) 2 actually...
  12. Testicular cancer research. Lasers, radiation, chemicals.
  13. "22 story tower crane" http://www.grbj.com/articles/88264-two-tower-project-downtown-breaking-ground A picture of the site, through wavy glass in the parking ramp stair tower.
  14. I forgot to add these of the new project on Monroe. It's actually tucked into a very nice setting (red winged blackbirds swooping at walkers notwithstanding).
  15. I'd bet that the Rowe would be interested in picking up parking spaces if they were expanded there.
