    50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    They definitely need to be pained. Maybe a really dark color so they blend in with the sky? Although we definitely have a lot of gray skies around here.

    Amway Grand Plaza Facelift

    Ditto, but I didn't want to say it.

    New projects in Monroe North

    Oh man I thought it was 58. I'm going to have to go back and count...

    Amway Grand Plaza Facelift

    They're adding some kind of steel structure on the roof.

    Woodland Mall to get $100 Million makeover

    Yeah, article says 8900 square feet so it would definitely go into the Bar Louie space. That place was alright, never really seemed to be crowded. Remember when it was Max & Ermas?

    Amway Grand Plaza Facelift

    The green Erickson crane that's there now barely looks like it fits on Pearl, with those wings coming off of it. I'll try and get some pictures...

    New projects in Monroe North

    If you get a chance, go drive by or walk by the new Embassy Suites. The ground floor is incredible, including a sweet lobby with what looks like a giant plant wall going up several floors. Plus in the "motor lobby" area there's a stone wrapped fountain. Garage doors on the Big E bar part of it will be cool in the summer. Looks like a big city hotel. Also, count the TV's you can see from the street.
  8. Thanks for explaining this yet again, mpchicago.

    Looks to me like it's going right here. No?

    Medical Mile/Michigan Street Developments

    Rair Systems, a medical marijuana facility, is looking to open on Michigan Street near Midtowne Village (where the pizza place is now). https://fox17online.com/2019/03/19/applications-are-in-for-medical-marijuana-facilities-in-grand-rapids/

    GVSU Downtown Development

    There were a couple of different variations. This was one.

    West Michigan/Grand Rapids Economy

    Expanded employment numbers are out from January 2019. GR Labor Force is up nearly 13,000 from this time last year. I predict the Labor Force will surpass the 600,000 mark by June 2019. Quite historic. (Take the 589,305 Labor Force number from June 2018 and add 13,000) https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LAUMT262434000000006?amp%3bdata_tool=XGtable&output_view=data&include_graphs=true

    Suburban Projects

    Every time I drive by Switch lately (I've been working on selling a townhouse nearby) there are never any cars there. None. Wonder what's up? The highest priced townhouses out in that area are in Caledonia about a mile Southwest. They run $220's - $230's I believe. There would not really be any comps for these other than in EGR or Ada, which you can't use as comps (they're too far away). Good luck!

    The Grand River?! You mean GR has a River?

    Cool article about the rapids restoration project: https://gearjunkie.com/grand-river-rapids-whitewater-michigan-park “It will be one of the longest urban whitewater parks in the country when completed,” said Mark Singleton, executive director of American Whitewater.

    DeVos Family Headquarters (Old 5/3 building)

    You're probably right, get ride of the "recessed" international style look and run glass all across the first floor. Probably end up like the Calder Plaza building next door.
