  1. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    I think that's the real play here. Make a splash going for the big prize and probably land at least a smaller one. Makes sense.
  2. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    1059 Wealthy coming along.
  3. 20 Fulton E, Mixed Use Development

    Got this shot today. Really changes the feel of that intersection I think.
  4. 1513 East Fulton - Church to Mixed Use

    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone....
  5. MSU Biomedical Research Campus

    Got these shots while down at City Hall the other day.
  6. New projects on the West Side

    This sounds cool. New housing along the Laker Line. Anybody know more about it? http://www.mlive.com/walker/index.ssf/2016/02/proposed_standale_housing_deve.html
  7. Looks like new estimates for 2011 population. Nice that the city is growing again. http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/26/2634000.html
  8. Martha's Vineyard

    That building was crap. Everything can't be saved. Glad it's gone.
  9. The State of Downtown Grand Rapids Retail

    Great news for DT retail. We might just get a department store and grocery store downtown if this pans out. And if the movie theater goes forward, I think we'll be golden. Next wave of DT development, here we go. Story at mlive.
  10. John Ball Zoo

    JBZ may not make the list of coolest zoos in America, but they have one of the coolest zoo schools. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2012/08/grand_rapids_zoo_school_one_of.html
  11. John Ball Zoo

    Check this out. Can't wait to see the view! story is at woodtv
  12. Grand Rapids Then and Now

    There is really old school rendering of Grand Rapids at the Library of Congress American Memory site. The drawing of Grand Rapids is from 1868. You can zoom in really close and see Park Congregational Church and St. Mark's church. I'm pretty sure there are remnants of Prospect Hill at Pearl and Ottawa. Here's a link. I can't figure out how to put the image up on here. It's better at the LOC site anyway because you can move around the image and zoom in and out. I think you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
  13. Health Hill/Medical Mile Developments

    What about the southeast corner of Lafayette and Michigan. It's just an old gas station with a 1 story Spectrum building next to it. I think a church owns the house behind it. Could be.
  14. Health Hill/Medical Mile Developments

    There are shovels and backhoes on Crescent Park next to VAI. There is a big trench being dug. I only assume it has something to do with the expansion. Anybody got details on what's going on there?
