  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. RFP - 201 Market

    Kind of hard to have a park when it is completely submerged every spring.
  4. Great idea, but cost prohibitive. The cost per space goes up exponentially when building underground vs above ground.
  5. Diamond Place at the Proos Site

    Which dollar store is the “to be announced” grocery store?
  6. Was just in Huntington, WV. They have a similar development called Pullman Square http://www.pullman-square.com/. If the Celebration Cinema development turns out as nice as this, it will be a real asset for the city.
  7. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    Another transplant from Traverse City?
  8. 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.
  9. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

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

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

    Just in time for my 98th birthday!!!
  12. 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.
  13. New projects on the West Side

    I believe the Alpine/4 Mile location is closed.
  14. 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.
  15. Grandville Castle Apartments

    Cedar Springs Brewing Co comes pretty close.
