  1. Maybe it's just me, but with the right foliage around the building it wouldn't be as bad as you guys are depicting it. Especially in the summer when the leaves are green, and if it's that bad maybe the leaves would cover up the whole building
  2. That's the house on 24th in Tallmadge Township right?
  3. Recently heard that Jay and Silent Bob will be performing here (March 28)
  4. My belief is there will be retail along Lake Michigan Dr. where the prior houses were located. Same thing with the zoned area along Wilson, maybe a hardware store. With the rest of the area behind my predictions would be apartments similar to the ones created on Knapp's corner. That's just my guess though. For the longest time I thought a Home Depot would go behind the Meijer and fill up most of the area, but now I feel there is better use for that area, mixing residential and commercial.
  5. That would also be for an MLS team, not USL. If this were to be a go with Grand Rapids I would see it being quite a lower cost. If they were to invest some money into it, though, it could rehab an entire neighborhood, kind of like what Detroit is doing with the new arena "neighborhood."
  6. These are all solid acts that have good size followings for their particular genre. Good job House of Blues entertainment.
  7. Downtown is kind of blocked off and surrounded with certain obstacles. With Heartside district, Heritage Hill, and the two highways that sort of split up the city, it is nice to see Heartside district giving some leway for future growth. I'd much rather see the HPC work on preserving the old buildings than blocking and preventing future growth. I would count this as a big win for everyone in GR.
  8. I haven't been able to go through all 40 pages so Idk if it's been talked about, but for the growth of metro GR, I feel it's best if East Beltline expanded into a 6 lane road, 3 lanes going each way. I've noticed in the past how backed up it can get and I highly anticipate there will be a lot more of development in the future for EB so before it gets too built up I think adding an extra lane to each side would be smart.
  9. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished.
  10. It's too bad they won't go through with the parking deck attached to the Arena. I thought that it would've been a great idea especially having ground floor retail and commercial space around the whole thing.
  11. I'm loving the progress on this, I hope they go through with it. It would be huge for the city. I also think with the new crown/roof on top of it, I feel maybe some LED would look good on it especially for the nightlife developing in GR.
