  1. If only they would have tried this with the Grand Castle. Would have made it look maybe 10% better (being generous).
  2. Anyone remember this https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/4855919f5dbd09715c93a07fee50baa9/River-Bend-Towers?hl=en
  3. So this happened today... https://www.woodtv.com/news/kent-county/celebration-cinema-woodland-permanently-closes/
  4. So AMC is supposedly in talks with bankruptcy lawyers. https://variety.com/2020/film/box-office/amc-theatres-bankruptcy-likely-1234575780/amp/ Goodrich Theaters filed for bankruptcy in February too. https://www.mlive.com/news/2020/02/i-never-anticipated-this-says-owner-of-michigan-theater-chain-now-in-bankruptcy.html Some analysts predict that most theaters will be closed until August. I’m a little nervous about the timing of the pandemic with this project...
  5. The last I saw was a completion date of Q3 2020. Anyone have a more precise date?
  6. It looks like they want to get rid of Winter Ave near the Pew Campus too.
  7. Decided to take a look too and found something unrelated, but interesting. It seems that Apple Maps captured 3D images of the damage produced by the July 2014 tornado that went through Ideal Park.
  8. For those interested in the M-231 expansion, this is what I found. Here is a draft from 2002 showing M-231s possible routes. http://www.michiganhighways.org/indepth/US-31Byp_FJ1Access.pdf And another image of the full route. Here is an image presented a few days ago in Zeeland showing where the route could be constructed in that area. MDOT says these are strictly concepts and that there is no plan to extend M-231 “at all” because there are no funds. Even if the plan was approved, construction would not begin for another 6-8 years after approval. https://www.hollandsentinel.com/news/20200213/possible-m-231-expansion-considered
  9. The plaza project was approved. Starts April 24 and is targeted to be completed by September 15. https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/dda-oks-1-6m-for-van-andel-arena-plaza-revamp/
  10. Looks like Zeeland is planning for the eventual extension of M-231 for a connection to I-196. They were approached by MDOT about acquiring parcels in the area. https://www.fox17online.com/news/local-news/lakeshore/ottawa/homeowners-concerned-about-state-highway-expansions-possible-home-demolition
  11. Stadium? Brewery? Or we could really play it safe...
  12. Looks like the developer cancelled their plans. https://www.fox17online.com/news/local-news/kent/developer-backs-out-of-lincoln-country-club-project
  13. Looks like the city and Kent County are arranging an agreement to move city public works equipment from 201 Market to the county’s 1500 Scribner Avenue location. https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2020/01/grand-rapids-gets-option-to-purchase-14-acre-property-on-grand-river.html
  14. Since I didn’t see this here https://www.woodtv.com/news/grand-rapids/w-mi-economic-forecast-predicts-slowing-growth/ Main concerns are: • Lack of workers • Upcoming elections • Decline in manufacturing
  15. Just a rough model to give an idea. And the last one is for those of us who still dream...
  • Create New...
