    Grandville Castle Apartments

    Except for the turrets not being as tall on top, looks pretty true to the drawing.

    RFP - 201 Market

    From the preliminary drawings, it reminds me of a smaller scaled version of Portland’s South Waterfront development:

    New projects in Monroe North

    It seems like they are reading from a manual on how to make a “cool city”, and are forcing it to happen. But what they are failing to understand is by doing that, it comes across as contrived and cheap.

    Nothing like hot asphalt to relax on and watch a movie. That’s going to be uncomfortable as hell.

    42 (now 14) story building coming to downtown GR

    Didn’t realize there was a rush of 12+ story projects in the pipeline. Lol

    Hopefully it looks better than the precast panels on 70 Ionia. The panels on that building make it look like suburban schlock, IMO.

    My prediction is that it will be cut down even further to 12 stories, due to them wanting it to fit in with the rest of the city.

    Day/Night Drone Footage of Downtown

    Good job on showcasing the city. That should be used in promotional material by the city. One thing that I noticed in the video is what a large waste of space the 5/3 bank parking lot is next to Calder plaza. Such a prime location with some decent square footage.

    Hey, what's that?

    Ironically enough, Fort Wayne has a blue lit truss bridge - Wells Street Bridge.

    Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Hope they can draw some manufacturers instead of all warehouses. This is a big opportunity.

    Division / Wealthy and ICCF

    “The grocery store concept is not dead. But we're also open to other opportunities on that block," said ICCF Executive Director Ryan VerWys. The new senior living apartments would bolster the case for building a grocery store on the site, he said. when are people around here going to realize that “low income”, “restricted income”, “fixed income”, “no income” is not going to attract the amenities (shops, grocery stores, etc.) that they want. I have absolutely no problem with this project, or most of the other low end projects. What I do have a problem with is this expectation that it is building a critical mass to attract businesses. This is not the demographic they are looking for.

    Based on any data, or just opinion?

    Voodoo would be the gold standard for a donut shop. Now if you through in a Stumptown Coffeshop with it, you would have an unbeatable combination.
  15. Nice building, but wonder why developers always refer to anything with multiple floors as a “tower”?
