  1. Hey, what's that?

    Ironically enough, Fort Wayne has a blue lit truss bridge - Wells Street Bridge.
  2. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Hope they can draw some manufacturers instead of all warehouses. This is a big opportunity.
  3. 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.
  4. Lake Drive Changes.

    Based on any data, or just opinion?
  5. Lake Drive Changes.

    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.
  6. Nice building, but wonder why developers always refer to anything with multiple floors as a “tower”?
  7. Predictions for the coming year

    Interesting that your SWAG has a definite suburban tilt to it. Because of the parking issues downtown, wondering if we’ll start seeing the suburbs start to gain ground in landing larger developments.
  8. Speaking of taller, in one of the renderings it shows a building approximately 18 stories tall. Is that someone taking artistic liberties, or will they actually have something that tall?
  9. RFP - 201 Market

    Kind of hard to have a park when it is completely submerged every spring.
  10. Diamond Place at the Proos Site

    Which dollar store is the “to be announced” grocery store?
  11. Was just in Huntington, WV. They have a similar development called Pullman Square If the Celebration Cinema development turns out as nice as this, it will be a real asset for the city.
  12. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Another transplant from Traverse City?
  13. The State of Downtown Grand Rapids Retail

    I agree that if it was in a dead zone that office use is better than empty space. But you are talking about GR’s “Main Street” here. You shouldn’t be putting in non transparent uses(what first floor office doesn’t have at least blinds covering the windows) in where millions of dollars and years of renovation has tried to make a vibrant area.
  14. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Definitely without the awnings.
  15. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    My money is on Atlanta. Runner up would be Austin.
