  1. New projects in Monroe North

    I'm liking what I'm seeing for Monroe North, but if I was in charge of the city planning I would try to connect Belknap Lookout with Monroe North by road by extending Fairbanks street to Division and doing a similar connection like the California incline in Santa Monica. Just redo the stairs to Division to go around the road and take out some trees to make it happen. It could go down to Newberry St and connect with that road and have an intersection there. Just an idea, if there's anyone in charge of these things that's listening .
  2. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    Developers dissapointed with renovation. http://www.mlive.com/business/west-michigan/index.ssf/2017/10/developer_disappointed_as_faca.html#incart_river_mobile_index Personally I liked the black panels, and definitely am not a fan of how it looks now without the panels, but we'll see how it looks once they finish with this project.
  3. MSU Biomedical Research Campus

    In the picture it looks like they'll add a name or at least "MSU Biomedical" next to the logo.
  4. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Good to know. It would be nice to use that land someday for development if and whenever that soil will be adequate enough to build on.
  5. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Not sure if this land would be able to be developed on or be restructured in a way that could be used for residential and commercial, but I've always thought that this piece of land could be developed in a well planned out manner so it gives a new dimension to the city. A walkable gridlike area where all buildings are close together and could add density (mid-rise buildings) and also be used as affordable housing, even though it would be right by downtown. Maybe it's a pipedream, but having this much land right by the city that hasn't really been developed on could be put to better use than whatever it's being used as now.
  6. Transit Updates for Greater Grand Rapids

    Start adding lanes. East beltline needs an extra lane both ways before it gets built up, prepare for the future, and 131 in some areas should add extra lanes as well as Wilson, from the stretch of 28th street to Standale.
  7. RFP - 201 Market

    As someone who's gone to basically every gvsu home game for the last 16 years, I don't ever see GVSU moving downtown, they've invested too much money into Lubbers stadium to let that go to waste, plus it's one of the nicest D2 stadiums in the U.S.
  8. RFP - 201 Market

    Plus they had to renovate it just a couple years ago after the fire. I'm guessing it'll be several mixed used developments there with a park to accommodate kayaking or something of that sort for the river. It would be really cool to have a mini boardwalk/walkway along the river with small independent shops and restaurants there.
  9. Grandville Castle Apartments

    I didn't see anything for them, but does anyone know if these apartment will have balconies?
  10. Grandville Castle Apartments

    Does anyone know if there is a timetable for phase 1 to be complete and when people are to start moving into it?
  11. Grandville Castle Apartments

    This would go great in Grandville. (Bar in SD)
  12. Grandville Castle Apartments

    I hope Grandville gets a White Castle now
  13. The Grand River?! You mean GR has a River?

    Honestly, I wonder if it would be possible and feasible to connect that small lake behind the castle to the river. Dig under the highway and create supports for the highway. Having a marina in that lake, especially with a big complex right there, would be very cool and could have an economic impact to the part of Grandville.
  14. Grandville Castle Apartments

    I think when it's complete it will be cool, and maybe for aesthetics, vines would look cool running up the building. Plus a development like this is great, because it is like a community where people can hang out around the pool and bond and enjoy life. This is a good thing. Relax and have faith.
  15. Parking problem downtown - too much of it? Not enough?

    The city decides not to ban parking lots downtown. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2017/04/facing_pressure_grand_rapids_d.html#incart_2box_news_grand-rapids
