  1. Lake Drive Changes.

    I loved Sweetwater's from my time at WMU. To be honest, I feel that them and Marge's are the clear leaders in best tasting donuts in the West Michigan region. Voodoo is expanding with locations in several states (CA, CO, FL). Maybe we'd get one :), they do have a fun vibe to them and I agree it'd fit well in the neighborhood.
  2. The State of Downtown Grand Rapids Retail

    http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2018/01/kilwins_chocolate_shop_in_down.html Maybe its coming back?
  3. No idea yet. New build or taking over a site. Is that Bagger Dave's closing too on the corner of Kraft and 28th? That would be a great location for a sports bar. (traffic, hotels, etc)
  4. Lake Drive Changes.

    I thought it was just electrical issues and that they'd reopen (or is that just cover for something else?). They always seemed steady when I was there.
  5. RFP - 201 Market

    That adds a lot to the story. This proposal was the clear winner and to be honest, the only company that appeared to really take the initial process seriously. I like the plan a lot and this would be a huge anchor development for the south end of DT GR.
  6. RFP - 201 Market

    Both of those buildings are in GR's sweet spot - 12-14 stories :).
  7. East Beltline Developments

    I wonder if this means that higher end tenants are leaning towards the Woodland redevelopment and perhaps the de-malling of the mall at Burton and Breton.
  8. Meijer

    Mark Wahlberg and Wahlburgers working on partnership with Meijer Looks like we might be seeing some Wahlburgers locally?
  9. Gaslight Village

    Athleta is moving into the old Mason James location in Gaslight.
  10. Gaslight Village

    I am glad its a restaurant and it sounds interesting.
  11. Gaslight Village

    Wok & Mortar replacing the old Biggby location.
  12. The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Yes, the city is serious in enforcing their Airbnb rules.
  13. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Saw today that there are for sale signs on the Wild Bunch building. Interesting to see how fast it moves.
  14. Kilwin's in Gaslight? If I recall, I did not think the first chocolate store failed, I thought they had retired/moved out of town. Sweetielicious, I thought was not ever a great fit. I'd been by multiple times and was advised their breakfast items weren't in as the delivery from the market downtown had not occurred yet. I think Kilwin's will actually do pretty well.
  15. RFP - 201 Market

    Looking at the two out of state companies and Zimmer appears to be general apartment complexes and big box retail. Flasher And Collins out of Indy has a nice looking resume. I'm. Ruinous to see more.
