  1. Some pricey real estate listings with new renderings are up for this project. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/159-S-River-Ave-505-Holland-MI-49423/2075612969_zpid/
  2. Forgive the crude drive-by pic, but wanted to show off Holland's very own tower crane! Corner of River and 7th.
  3. Sounds like there's quite the story behind the vacant Witmark. The following is per reddit, and others seem to corroborate the story: https://www.woodtv.com/news/kent-county/buyers-interested-but-witmark-owner-wont-sell/
  4. More (rough) context for those that may not be familiar with Manistee.
  5. Looks like maybe its gray brick??? Which I think will look better than more plain gray panels.
  6. Thanks I sell them at Bluedoor on Fulton, Oh Hello on Monroe Center, and Reinspired Treasures in Alger Heights if you'd like to see them in person. Oh, and at Tanger, Rivertown, and Woodland in the My State Designs store. Along with many tourist towns of course. Hit 40 retailers this week, mostly in Michigan.
  7. Thoughts on the design? Would overlook the Lake MI beach in Manistee. Suburban Inns is proposing a five-story Hampton Inn & Suites hotel with 108 rooms at 101 S. Lakeshore Drive Plans for the interior of the hotel include a fitness center, lobby bar and an indoor pool with an indoor/outdoor spa, according to the application. The exterior plans include a patio with firepits and space for bocce ball, beach volleyball and shuffleboard. https://www.manisteenews.com/local-news/article/What-to-know-about-the-proposed-Hampton-Inn-plans-16064746.php
  8. After looking at this site, 475 Market across the street on the river may have been included in the purchase?? Site also has some interior pictures and prelim plans for basement parking. http://470market.com/
  9. yup. Grand Action 2.0, whose members include Carol Van Andel and Dick DeVos, is working to develop an ownership group to bring a United Soccer League (USL) Championship-level team to Grand Rapids. Once the ownership group is formed, which could take six months to a year, the focus would shift to finding a site to build — and how to finance — a roughly 7,500-seat stadium. “The community, I think, has quite a bit of excitement around this,” said Jim Zwiers, executive vice president of Wolverine World Wide and a member of Grand Action’s executive committee. “We’ve gotten a lot of really favorable feedback. We’re excited and we think it’s something that can happen for Grand Rapids.” Zwiers said it’s too early to identify those who have expressed interest in being part of the proposed soccer team’s ownership group. But he added that a “core interest-level certainly exists around potential funders and franchise operators.” Rough estimates indicate a stadium would cost more than $40 million.
  10. Looks like you're correct. They must have some plans for the Godfrey property in the not so distant future then. Otherwise you would think they would offer up space to the Antique Row stores for the time being. Sure they probably want a more permanent home, but being bounced around is the price for cheap rent I guess.
  11. Slight name change. Now known as the Ovation Building
  12. Can you share images now that it's public info GRDad? https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/03/historic-sligh-furniture-building-in-grand-rapids-eyed-for-753-unit-micro-apartment-project.html use ctrl A/C/V to read behind the paywall.
  13. Here's my proposal for a crossing assuming there are no plans to update the interchange. Could be a signature gateway bridge into the city. Takes advantage of the dip in the freeway grade. Seems like an overpass makes more sense here than next to the river as shown in the Market property proposal. Could make it Calder Red.
  14. All the more reason for a better way for pedestrians to cross the freeway at Wealthy. With an easier crossing, this could be great for the Downtown Market and possibly jump start South Division. Bonus material: Stumbled upon a fresh accident scene on the awful Wealthy overpass.
  15. Another view of the property with islands depicted in 1868 with a riverboat shown tied up just north of Wealthy on the east side and another steamboat almost to the Blue Bridge on the west bank. https://www.etsy.com/listing/736957466/grand-rapids-1868-aerial-view-map-on?ref=shop_home_active_38&frs=1
