  1. And the AC Hotel is also coming along nicely! It will be interesting to see what they do with that cornice. Thanks for the pic!

    Hinman project - new 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

    This is 1000% improvement, and if this building actually has a light bar at the top, all the better! Don't count on them ever adding floors. I'm embarrassed that I pontificated for years that the city should build a pocket park there

    Stockbridge Apartments or flats I think.

    Hopleaf is great. It's been around forever and has a great Andersonville location.

    Highway and Road Construction Updates

    I think there was a proposal out there to make Ionia north of the freeway a linear park with a bike path. Maybe it was a GRForward rendering I saw, but don't recall.

    Village of Ada - Complete Makeover

    Hmmm, I like the original modern version better.

    Yes, not surprised. This WAS a bad location and was not open for lunch. Thought that Sellers would have known it was a bad location since he lived in Chicago. Another article says they may try to give Chicago another try, while another article said they won't

    Blue 35 - 35 Oakes - Heartside Manor/Merten Hotel

    I love outdoor seating, and I'm sure they could fit some in, but those sidewalks are pretty tight there. BTW, where did Interphase go? They seem to bounce from place to place downtown. I see the have a location on Eastern, is that it now?
  11. I think the hotel was always targeted for 2020.

    Hinman project - new 13 story hotel at 10 Ionia

    I think this was supposed to go up pretty fast from what I recall of the timeline shown on the city docs. So I'm wondering if it will be steel skeleton. Does anyone know for sure? I'm sure they are a little bit behind schedule right now due to the weather.

    Wealthy Street Mega Thread

    Yes, funny how the power lines are so prominent in the drawing, but not the case in reality on that side the street. Who knows maybe that was part of the crazy reasoning behind not approving this building.

    The Grand River?! You mean GR has a River?

    I'm not suggesting that Steve Heacock is not up for the job, just think it's lame this guy bailed on the project because he was cold and wanted to go home. I think Steve can rally the troops and bring in the big money donors!

    So he bailed because he wanted to go home. Lame. See the project trough, Richard.
