  1. For years we've been hearing about wetlands loss. Seems like this would be encouraged as a tool to add/improve wetlands capacity, JoeDowntown. I wonder why it's not.
  2. neighborhood behind this property has had drainage issues and it sounds like they wanted to move water towards the south purposely. (I have not seen the grading plan)
  3. sort of reminds me of what the Borisch family did at Walloon Lake.
  4. http://grandrapidscitymi.iqm2.com/Citizens/Detail_LegiFile.aspx?Frame=&MeetingID=6436&MediaPosition=&ID=13251&CssClass=
  5. How does this change your perspectives on the river-edge projects being envisioned up and down the river? not encouraging to me.
  6. Looks like this is a temp sign for part of an ArtPrize promo video that they rolled out a day or two ago...
  7. They completely rebuilt the bridge decks on the bridges over LMD and on-ramps to 196
  8. You left off a few of the more seedy options also available in that vicinity...
  9. Josh Naramore, is that you? Curious how many of the G.R. urban planet denizens agree with that statement... Is there a way to do a poll on here?
  10. So is this not accurate: https://liveandletsfly.com/southwest-airlines-business-travel/ "I wouldn’t be surprised to see business travel languish for a decade before it gets back to 2019 levels"
  11. Campus was built in 64 and there were 5-6 original buildings. That was one of them.
  12. Integrated is moving out of that building with the panels 'falling off' and other very unique features? It will be really interesting to see what becomes of that building.
  13. I feel like price points are going to be an ongoing issue for vendors/restaurants at the market. Perception is powerful. With potentially very challenging economic conditions over the near term, how will the potential customers for the market behave? At the moment, it seems like Tacos el Cunado does significant volume and they have the most approachable price point in the market.
  14. 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
  15. scuttlebutt is that this a senior-focused apartment / independent living complex that is being proposed.
  16. 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.
  17. 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...
  18. more on the Brann's block development: https://mibiz.com/sections/real-estate-development/developers-plan-new-west-side-grand-rapids-office-building
  19. 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...
  20. I've been watching this slow crawl of a project wondering how on earth they're keeping water out of that structure...
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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
  24. Now that was just cruel to those of us who frequent that stretch. I had about three seconds of hope...
  25. 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
