  1. It's a long-standing Wealthy Street business owner too who is the rumored buyer, so I'm looking forward to seeing what they want to do. I have no idea if they are incorporating neighboring properties. I actually talked to ICCF back years ago when they owned it but they did not want to part with it.
  2. 300 Wealthy has apparently sold and rumor has it that it will be proposed condos/residential. (the corner right at the roundabout)
  3. I think this tunnel is going to be a little less of a "public" tunnel than a connector between MSU, BAMF and Spectrum's campus. I have a feeling it will be part of the regular security detail at night.
  4. The old Clipper Belt Lacer Company building on Front is going to be turned into apartments. I love these old buildings. I had a feeling they'd be renovated someday. https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/pinnacle-construction-plans-13m-historic-renovation-for-riverside-apartment-office-development https://goo.gl/maps/zAr2EyXfkgvF3Brv9
  5. Definitely. It's pretty dank and ominous right now.
  6. I had to go to the airport yesterday to sign up for TSA precheck and I saw that view of the expansion. Looks really cool when you're coming into the airport campus. And that's only one of four "sloped" skylight ceilings to come.
  7. Exciting. At 11 stories, the new facility will be one of the tallest on Medical Mile. HDVCH is 14 but it's down the hill a bit. Current street life: https://goo.gl/maps/V4NubJe1SXo6LC9U9
  8. Are they actually going to open it up for pedestrians? We've only been wishing for that for 20 years, lol.
  9. It's really easy to screenshot and post that shit. Why am I one of the only ones to do it.
  10. Yeah, just like kid height urinals, they should bring those slot machines right down to kid eye level!! Gull Lake, did you mean Gun Lake?
  11. Steel! In the air. This is going to go up fast I'll bet.
  12. I wouldn't say Grand Rapids is "embarrassing" itself. Staffing issues are a nationwide problem. What exactly are restaurants supposed to do? We just got back from 3 days in NYC and I couldn't believe all of the permanently closed restaurants in the block around our hotel, including the restaurant IN our hotel. Closed. In fact, Monday nights seem to be the night that many of the local restaurants here are closed for dinner service. Don't plan on going out to eat on Monday nights for a while. And who the heck would stand in line for Z's.
  13. I can't believe there aren't any renderings of the inside of the Aquadome. I've looked all over.
  14. Riding around on motorbikes and 4 wheelers popping wheelies up and down the streets? I could be down for that.
  15. Oh, this is off Peregrine, wedged up near the car wash. I thought they were proposing a hotel behind Hopcat.
  16. Exactly. Why do they even need to stress "family friendly?" 3 x in the statements from the commissioner? What's wrong with just a bunch of adults just out having a good time, sans kids!!
  17. Wow, interesting. Any images out on the interwebs?
  18. Some updates about Ada, including the social zone apparently got passed. Drives me crazy though when public officials say they're trying to make things "family friendly." No gay couples then? No couples period? What the hell does family friendly mean? https://www.wzzm13.com/article/news/local/ada-cascade/13-on-your-side-of-town-what-to-expect-in-ada-the-next-few-years/69-9816acff-ae31-468b-929c-513e93f03e52
  19. And if you're visiting family and friends anywhere in the Forest Hills or Lowell area, it's a way cooler alternative to 28th Street or the East Buttline. Mudpenny just recently opened for dinner, which gives another dining alternative. I'd really like to see Luna open. Looks ready to go, probably no staffing.
  20. I think the apartment tower and the gallery itself were "condo'd" apart from each other, if that's the right terminology. With some shared spaces and responsibilities. I think even the ramp is owned by the city or Ellis and they lease the spaces.
  21. It was really cool. You could hear the people and music pouring out of the tent, which is raised up from the sidewalk in a raised garden area. We kept meaning to stop for a drink but we were on our way somewhere else every time we walked past. Fountain Street doesn't have a patio per se' but maybe part of the street parking could be blocked off? Like restaurants have done? The lobby with the Spanish tile floor would be awesome to dine in.
  22. I was just in NYC last week and every evening we walked by St Bartholomew Church and they have a restaurant and outdoor dining area called Inside Park at St Bart's. The tent outside was packed at happy hour. Something similar for Fountain Street? https://www.google.com/search?q=st+barts+new+york+city+outdoor+dining&sxsrf=ALiCzsb9su2jtb-MCI_nucSqeGWNy4mPOw%3A1652570792067&ei=qDqAYujSA6PttQbUoqmwBw&oq=st+barts+new+york+city+outdoor+&gs_lcp=ChNtb2JpbGUtZ3dzLXdpei1zZXJwEAEYADIFCCEQoAEyBQghEKABMgUIIRCgATIFCCEQoAEyBQghEKABMgUIIRCrAjIFCCEQqwI6BwgjELADECc6BwgAEEcQsAM6BggAEBYQHjoFCAAQhgM6CAghEBYQHRAeSgQIQRgAUJYIWJUkYJAvaAFwAXgAgAH3AYgB6w6SAQUwLjIuN5gBAKABAcgBCcABAQ&sclient=mobile-gws-wiz-serp#wptab=s:H4sIAAAAAAAAAONgVuLWT9c3LKmqKk8zTXrEaMYt8PLHPWEp3UlrTl5jVOfiCs7IL3fNK8ksqRSS5GKDsvileLmQ9fHsYuLzyU9OzAnIzwzIyC_JL17EqpCZV5yZkqpQkFiUrZBYolBcoqeQlFhUol6sUABWAgAgj0zPfAAAAA&lpg=cid:CgIgAQ%3D%3D
  23. It does have a "neighborhood" feel to it. I think it's because of the older tree canopies. It definitely could pop a lot more.
