  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. Well, you beat me to it, but I had my headline all planned: This just in: Johnny Bz to get rid of worlds worst parking lot. Images from planning commission.
  8. To me it looks like you can see On The Boarder in the picture and they're simply getting rid of Bar Louie?
  9. 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.
  10. The Family Promise proposal was supported by the neighborhood association and was approved today. https://www.facebook.com/CityofGrandRapids/videos/2003858503026667/
  11. 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.
  12. Looks like they were successful, it's coming down today.
  13. 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?!
  14. 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.
  15. Anyone know who ended up buying this after Res Life backed out? Seems like there's been movement here lately...
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Rumors abound about a new sports bar on 28th in Cascade? Anyone got the scoop?
  19. I've had their cell service for ever, live in GR, and have no issues. FWIW. Also had uverse for years.. no issues there either. Have xfinity now, but would certainly get pricing on this!
  20. 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.
  21. Revised site plan [attached here]. Application doesn't state a tenant, but they must have one in mind to change it like that. Basically they've eliminated the far east retail building in favor of a much more square shaped building right next to fresh thyme. Original Site Plan.pdf Revised Site Plan.pdf
  22. No, that's in the agenda after 2500 Burton. a separate line item.
