  1. I'm still not sure how my wife stumbled upon this, and I don't think there's been press on it, but apparently Madewell opens this month at Breton Village:
  2. From East GRs e-newsletter, in the Mayors Corner: “We have had very exciting news regarding Gaslight Village. Jade Pig, who redeveloped the old Jacobson's store and reignited the business district a dozen years ago, has announced they are preparing to develop the vacant property behind the parking ramp, and are projecting a $30 million investment. They see Gaslight Village as a huge success they want to build upon. The plans have not yet been brought to the City.”
  3. It doesn't appear so. It's owned by 45 Ottawa Associates LLC, with a mailing address going to Rockford Constrution's 601 First St address.
  4. Mission BBQ is opening on E Beltline north of Knapp, where Bagger Daves was. https://mission-bbq.com/ I ate at the new City BBQ on 28th near woodland last week. Very good! But... what's with all the BBQ all of the sudden?
  5. I just said this to my wife. Or a Lucky Strike. Seems like a real complimentary draw to a movie theater..
  6. Panda Express is opening across from woodland mall where MC Sports used to be.
  7. To me it looks like you can see On The Boarder in the picture and they're simply getting rid of Bar Louie?
  8. Ours does too. In a quiet SE side neighborhood. And I bet no one knows. 5 families or whatever our church hosts doesn’t equal 100, but I think people (on here) are way over reacting. There were maybe 4 letters of opposition and 20 or so support.
  9. The Family Promise proposal was supported by the neighborhood association and was approved today. https://www.facebook.com/CityofGrandRapids/videos/2003858503026667/
  10. A complete guess, but, probably any of the following: kept for guests. Razed for Gen III/IV's new house. Razed for open land for the other family nearby. My guess is we won't see it on Zillow.
  11. They split and transferred the property at the back half of 2500 Burton (along Inverness) to Townhomes at Breton Village LLC a few weeks back [http://grdowntowncondos.com/townhomes_breton_village/]. So it seems like they're actually happening. I can't believe I forgot to post the renderings and floor plans - complete with roof deck over looking trash and loading docks. @x99 where you at?!
  12. Starbucks is going in next to Sur La Table, the veterinary clinic is moving from Breton Village into a yet to be constructed building next to Fresh Thyme.
  13. Anyone know who ended up buying this after Res Life backed out? Seems like there's been movement here lately...
  14. There's a lease pending sign in the space next to Sur La Table. It was designed for a drive-thru, so will be interesting to see what comes of it.
  15. You know, I think it's the Fowling place that made all the waves 12 months ago. Their liquor license was finally approved in December of 2017 and it looks like they're finally hiring. I'm sure that's it. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2017/02/what_is_fowling_and_why_cascad.html
  16. Rumors abound about a new sports bar on 28th in Cascade? Anyone got the scoop?
  17. Why would someone put a chocolate store in a retail store front that has failed two previous chocolate stores in the same amount of years? They have good ice cream too, but you know, Jersey Junction and all.
  18. What's the status here anyway? Are they looking for retailers? Waiting for buildings to be done? 37 pages of discussion and I've lost track.
  19. Why on earth would we need another DSW or Ulta or, why would they move so soon after setting up/renovating at Centerpointe?
  20. What ever happened to Terra Firma? Are they still around?
  21. I think Scott Wierda's comment was that they made a significant (seven figure) investment in the interior renovation of Breton Village and it didn't work out. He called it a bad investment. Demalling wasn't out of the question, but he didn't imply it was imminent either.
  22. GVSU's original downtown campus is x99's architectural mecca then? #edgy
