  1. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    My money is on Atlanta. Runner up would be Austin.
  2. Highway and Road Construction Updates

    Just in time for my 98th birthday!!!
  3. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    To build on this point, the majority of people attending conventions at DeVos are from Michigan, who drive instead of fly to get here. The reason for this is that most of the events held at the convention center are statewide conventions or consumer shows. Very few of the events draw people in that would need to fly here.
  4. New projects on the West Side

    I believe the Alpine/4 Mile location is closed.
  5. Transit Updates for Greater Grand Rapids

    But as much as people can wish, push, promote, cajole, and threaten, most people will always look down on and refuse to ride the bus. It does not have the same cache as riding the rail does. No matter how technologically advanced and sexy they try to make the bus system. Not saying I share that view, but that does seem to be the prevailing attitude.
  6. Grandville Castle Apartments

    Cedar Springs Brewing Co comes pretty close.
  7. MSU Biomedical Research Campus

    Very sterile. Hope they do some great things inside the building, because the outside doesn't do anything for that corner.
  8. One thing I am wondering regarding empty parking spots - Because the monthly parking pass holders have already paid for their spot, doesn't the city have to hold a certain number of spots open for them? So if you are seeing open spots at any given time, could those already be spoken for?
  9. Diamond Place at the Proos Site

    Diamond Place is a $42-million, mixed-use project slated for completion next summer. The project includes more than 100 affordable housing units, plus 22,000 square feet of retail space, anchored by a community grocery store. The term "community grocery store" brings to mind the Walgreen's community pharmacy up the hill from this development. Don't think it's going to be a chain or have much size to it.
  10. IMO, this would be the best use of the existing space. Conventions like the contiguous space for shows, and breakout rooms and ballrooms are a big attraction/money maker for them too. And if they are right across the street from each other, that is close enough to not be inconvenient and a deal breaker.
  11. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    As long as it has turrets and dormers.
  12. Grandville Castle Apartments

    Amway World?
  13. RFP - 201 Market

    It would be nice to have an out of state firm get it, if their proposals are worthy. Just to get some outside investment and perspective in the market. Rockford has done well, but it seems their final product is always value engineered down to something less than what they originally proposed.
  14. People talking about Grand Rapids

  15. The problem with that location is it would keep that area devoid of ground level retail/restaurants. Can't imagine the police department letting any other use other than their own use on the ground floor of a building that they occupy.
