  1. I bet there's some people here who would lick their chops over this... https://www.mlive.com/news/muskegon/2020/02/new-life-sought-for-old-power-plant-on-prime-land-in-grand-haven.html
  2. scuttlebutt is that this a senior-focused apartment / independent living complex that is being proposed.
  3. I seem to recall that the tax credits connected to low-income housing project were not approved in the last round by the state and they're waiting for the next submission window.
  4. from the 'advertisement for bid:' A. Online Procurement and Contracting Documents: Obtain access after 12/10/2019, by contacting Mark Miller or Casey Elmer. Online access will be provided to all registered bidders and suppliers. B. Viewing Procurement and Contracting Documents: Examine after 12/10/2019, at the locations below: 1. Hard copies of the contract documents may be examined at the Owner’s office: 29 Pearl Street NW, Suite 1, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503 during the hours of 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday Seems like a FOIA for those docs would be something GR Press, MIBIZ and others should have been on...
  5. more on the Brann's block development: https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/developers-plan-new-west-side-grand-rapids-office-building
  6. Pretty sure Josh Naramore wasn't one of those to leave, and he's the guru behind all those contentious parking and 'mobile GR' decisions...
  7. I've been watching this slow crawl of a project wondering how on earth they're keeping water out of that structure...
  8. I live in that area and understand that south of O'Brien there are issues with subsidence due to the gypsum mines so that land is unlikely to be developable. My impression is that is why the amphitheater proposal for that location didn't move forward... The extensive orchards between Lk Mich drive and O'Brien are a great candidate for development except that there's power lines running right through the middle which seem to put something of a damper on residential attractiveness...
  9. The level of upheaval that would occur if Toledo lost AAA affiliate to G.R. would be massive (the Iowa Cubs comparison). Not to mention the PCL expanding all the way to Michigan would create more questions and conflicts. I can't see that happening. So AA in G.R. would mean Whitecaps are the furthest west of the Eastern League teams, contradicting the MLB goal of more compact travel for minor league teams. It's simply most likely that they'd retain A level Midwest League affiliation here and AA would shift east. The likelihood of Erie retaining the team seems pretty high. They're pouring money into the Erie stadium, which would resolve some of the issues MLB is pointing at with facilities. It also fits well for compact travel. The whole realignment is likely to explode into highly contentious lawsuits anyway and is years into the future before implementation. And I would guess that the Whitecaps owners are likely very pleased with their current operation...
  10. Take a look at the leagues in minor league baseball and their geographic regions and you'll see that Midwest League is where the Whitecaps most logically fit. https://www.milb.com/about/leagues-teams
  11. Now that was just cruel to those of us who frequent that stretch. I had about three seconds of hope...
  12. More on the Monroe North developments... https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/gill-industries-explores-sale-of-downtown-grand-rapids-plant-to-spectrum-health
  13. I suppose the horse is sort of out of the barn already with the building that went up at Leonard & Alpine as far as modernizing architecture along Leonard vs. preserving the look of the previous structures.
  14. 1200 people will bring a lot of vehicles (no, don't imagine they're all going to take transit. Those habits are not there yet). This will have to include parking, like it or not...
  15. This article is odd. The overall trend of a number of the state schools is relatively flat with a handful who have not adjusted to the demographic reality of birthrates/grad rates/choice patterns. Seems like a handful of schools there should be lauded for their ability to sustain a stable school with fairly flat enrollment in that environment.
