  1. Looks like something North Korea would build for an Olympic Village.
  2. It would be nice if we started having more colorful developments. Arena Place, that one apartment near Heartside and now this are really pushing the plain black and white look which is nice here and there but is starting to go too far. Maybe it will look better with the glass...
  3. The image from the above article: Here's a really poor screen grab from this article: http://fox17online.com/2017/01/19/grand-rapids-rapid-growth-will-supply-meet-demand/ It has the Hyatt Place markings on the bottom behind him so are these other drawings? The ones shown in the Fox17 article seem taller and lighter. Just something I noticed today.
  4. Won't be operational for much longer. http://www.wzzm13.com/mb/news/investigations/13-on-your-side/watchdog/s-curve-million-dollar-anti-icing-system-on-last-leg/385287416
  5. Anyone else get reminded of 50 Monroe?
  6. Not sure if anyone else saw these. I like the brick looking portion, but the light colored part looks like it should be something built near the airport.
  7. Still better than anything new on Michigan Street...
  8. So Von Maur, REI, Dick's or Golf Galaxy and The Container Store. I had to look up The Container Store because I thought it would be some sarcastically named store. Nope, just containers, containers everywhere.
  9. Ahhh makes sense. I was confused because it seems every time I go to a Macy's anywhere, it's always busy.
  10. Looks like the LED lighting is finally getting installed around the city. http://fox17online.com/2017/01/04/led-lights-overpasses-grand-rapids/ Places include: Heartside Park Grandville overpass Fulton Street overpass and at the intersection with Market Avenue Pearl Street overpass Bridge Street overpass Monroe Avenue overpass I-196 on and off-ramps Monroe Avenue at Coldbrook Market and Wealthy streets Division and Wealthy streets
  11. Seems like Macy's is having some trouble too, though no local stores are closing. http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2017/01/04/macys-identifies-68-stores-close/96169742/
  12. *is something... Autocorrect. I totally think we need more green space! Didn't even realize the mix up.
  13. Green space isn't something that I think we need more of but only if it's done wisely. Hopefully they can incorporate some nice, green elements in the new Calder Plaza plans. Also, that interchange park seems like it could be a shady place. The park on Cherry and Division was bad enough and that was in the open.
  14. Chick-fil-a is proposing to build on the corner near Centerpointe Mall after they were denied the place near Celebration Cinema.
