    RFP - 201 Market

    I agree with the posts above, reminds me of a suburban corporate campus rather than a well designed development in a prime location. If anyone wants to check out any interesting ideas for large scale developments, http://www.urby.com. They have been really well received in the NYC Metro area.

    Mangiamo/Paddock Place Residential Development

    I've lurked for about year and have enjoyed seeing the discourse between members. A community only gets better with active discussion on growth and innovation. Although I don't live in Grand Rapids currently, as a former citizen it's great to see how much more progressive GR has become over the years. I'm a big advocate for most types of urban infill especially bringing value to certain sections of GR that have had their market devalued in the last 50 years or so. I can't really comment on the Mangiamo development, but I will say that breaking that lot up into townhouses can only be a positive. It just needs to be done in good taste and with quality in mind. AG3, I commend you for building those Brownstones in the Belknap area. Driving by them within the last year, it felt as if I was in a larger city. It looks like they were built with quality. If I planned on moving back to the area, I would seriously considered moving to Belknap due to the close proximity to downtown and the current projects being built there. 5 years ago I wouldn't have even considered it. I do look forward to posting in the future. Thanks for keeping me up to date from the northeast.
