  1. A fence guy is not a construction guy. This project has been in the works for a loonnngggg time. https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/gvsu-lot-in-grand-rapids-soon-becoming-affordable-housing-complex/
  2. The old glass definitely made it look like it had a dad-bod going on, now that you show the comparison.
  3. I love it. I feel like it's something Detroit would do. (which I mean in a good way)
  4. Well they picked the right architects. None of the accoutrements of faux historic architecture, combined with none of the fun eye candy of modernism. Like a bland Krispy Kreme donut. In fact, it looks like the production line for some kind of donuts (scandinavian?). Just because a building is minimalistic and has no overhangs doesn't make it good modern. Grade schools built in the 1970s all had that. It might seem harsh, but has anyone driven by the building on Division at Weston lately? It already looks 30 years old.
  5. Looks like the old Baker Furniture building is going to see new life. As... a furniture company headquarters. https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/new-mien-co-hq-planned-at-former-baker-furniture-building-along-gr-riverfront Interestingly, the future plans may have a residential component: “It’s a beautiful location. We want to make sure the people who work there love working there,” he said. “We hope to create an environment there with housing and maybe a restaurant, but we don’t know the extent of what that will look like right now.”
  6. I think it will feel like an Arnie's. And maybe that's what they're going for. They say they're moving because they want a more "neighborhood" vibe.
  7. Yeesh. Kind of looks like that new "learning laboratory" on the hill at GRCC, but a much worse version.
  8. With the color, graininess, and the post office, that picture looks like it's from the 70s.
  9. OMG. People are dumb. I think most of the people who used to go to the Red Lion don't go to Bridge Street anymore, and the people who do go to Bridge Street now probably have no idea what it was. Or they might understand it's an homage to the old Red Lion. Or just a really cool big neon sign.
  10. Is this finally going to happen? Looks pretty cool (the switchback park). https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/proposed-path-would-connect-belknap-to-downtown-gr/ That little bastard squirrel looks like he's up to no good.
  11. Looking good! That's a lot of floors for only 170 people that Perrigo is saying they're bringing downtown. Will there be other tenants in the building?
  12. Anyone know where to find the GDP per capita numbers that the guy talks about in the article? I'd be interested in seeing that.
