  1. The building with the fish painting was supposed to be turned into a pottery studio. It was announced about a year ago. I'm sure Covid -19 put those plans on hold. https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2019/08/pottery-studio-to-renovate-aging-grand-rapids-building.html
  2. Anything you could do to help them get a proper sign terra ferma? I think the building turned out well.
  3. Looks like the old Seven's Paint just north of Leonard. Nice win for NE side, and nice way to fill that vacant building. Plenty of parking, and I would think enough space for patio too.
  4. Thanks for posting Joe - How is new retail space along Lyon coming along?
  5. numstead - rendering still embargoed?
  6. LOL old guys!? Jeff - what are you in your mid to late 40's?
  7. Yes, you did read correctly. Expanding in to Madcap space https://grbj.com/news/food-service-agriculture/aperitivo-reopening-patio-expanding-footprint/
  8. Thanks numstead, and welcome back Look forward to some renderings, pics of progress!
  9. Plans have Integrated Architecture moving from East Paris - Kentwood, to this Monroe North location. Glad this is finally moving along... From MiBiz: Kentwood-based Integrated Architecture LLC will invest about $2 million into renovating a 13,600-square-foot building at 840 Ottawa Ave. NW north of downtown Grand Rapids into its new headquarters. Integrated Architecture plans to occupy the newly renovated space in the Monroe North district in mid to late November this year. The new office will be designed for 70 people, but 50 people will move into the building initially, with the opportunity for growth, said Mike Corby, executive vice president of Integrated Architecture. The architecture and engineering firm first proposed the headquarters relocation project in 2017. Integrated Architecture is working with Caledonia-based FCC Construction Inc. for the exterior and site work, and Grand Rapids-based Rockford Construction Co. Inc. for the interior improvements. Van Haren Electric Inc. and River City Mechanical Inc. are also part of the renovation project.

  11. My apologies if this has already been addressed, but did they basically add another "floor" with the the changes to the top of the building? At lead 10 more feet on to the building, no?
  12. I'm going to respectfully disagree. I've grown to really like the Fifth/Third Building. I used to hate it, but its really grown on me.
  13. I don't think I've seen this angle before.
  14. This is great news! I was disappointed when they disbanded. I hope that Grand Rapids Whitewater and the River for All river park plans are included in what they will be looking in the near future. I think these projects are up near the top when it comes to having the most impact on the city going forward.
