  1. 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.
  2. Meijer

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

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

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

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

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

    Saw today that there are for sale signs on the Wild Bunch building. Interesting to see how fast it moves.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. If the zoo ordinance would have passed would FMG gone somewhere else or would it have all been at the same property?
  11. I agree, I couldn't stand going DT there as a kid (I remember being disappointed they didn't relocate to the south sid of town). Now I'd view it entirely different. Good for them continuing ro expand.
  12. Woodland Mall to get $100 Million makeover

    I'm not sure if this is worth it.... Greenwich, CT is essentially a suburb of NYC and its median family income is nearly three times greater then GR. Sarasota is Tampa Bay metro. Those are not equal comparisons. Naples is double, and while population in the metro Fort Meyers (Naples) is much less then GR I'd still argue that with its heavy tourism industry its still not an equal comparison to GR. If GR was 30-45 miles away from Chicago, we'd be in a different echelon when it comes to retail. Since we're a moderately sized city about three hours away from Detroit and Chicago with modest income base we are not a retail mecca.
  13. Sounds fantastic, its within walking distance so i can't wait. Will they have beer/wine?
  14. I saw that, and the Charleston sounds interesting. I had been curious to what was taking over for Sweetielicious.
  15. GVSU Downtown Development

    GVSU buying property for $3.3M for Pew Campus parking lot I've heard rumors of different things with the Padnos property to GVSU for a while. Looks like they are locking up the property for the future, except for now a parking lot
