  1. Lakeshore Projects

    Three words: hydrogen power plant. Faust was ahead of his time.
  2. The Grand River?! You mean GR has a River?

    The skate park actually surprised me
  3. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    It’d be nice to know where the airport and Grand Rapids sites were.
  4. John Loeks was there. Photo by Studio C.
  5. The parking lots will be closing soon. Area 4 on March 7 and Area 5 in mid-April.

    19th out of 50 best cities to live in the United States. I don’t know why the link says 2016, but this was just published. http://www.businessinsider.com/us-news-best-places-to-live-in-america-2016-3
  7. Wikipedia - Grand Rapids

    Some users on Wikimedia Commons backed out from trying to draw the seal, so I tried it myself. Not great, but better than the pixelated image from a 100 year old book that was being used on Wikipedia.
  8. It’s official. The old ITT building has Metro Health signage on it now.
  9. I also just recognized that they are starting to place marker balls on the power lines nearby to make them visible for the helicopter. Interesting to see how much planning had to go into this.
  10. Predictions for the coming year

    Ok, my first try: • Hinman Tower will be scaled down • We will not see a new proposal over 12 stories (keeping it safe at 12) • GVSU will announce further plans to become even more involved near the Medical Mile. • Nothing will happen with the post office, though they might get opioid detecting equipment • Rapids restoration plans will progress significantly • We will see more of Amplify GR’s presence in southeast Grand Rapids
  11. University of Michigan Survival Flight has partnered with Wyoming to create a temporary helipad at the Gezon fire department to serve Metro Health. Yesterday was it’s first landing.
  12. RFP - 201 Market

    With as cold as it is right now, I could use a skywalk to my car.

    That’s my photo of EGR! I randomly took it years back and uploaded it to Wikipedia since there were no other photos at the time. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Grand_Rapids,_Michigan
