  1. Just about the same height as the courthouse
  2. Does anyone know what the proposed height of the building itself is?
  3. I would not mind if the Press moved, but developers might shy away from the property if they knew that there was an underground stream running under the Press property that was discovered a few years ago. That's right, when the press still had the hopes of putting the new high speed Presses on the current sight, soil tests (by several companies) revealed that the property could not handle the weight of the giant machines. The origianl plan was to expand at the current sight and not move to Walker. The person who told me about the undersground spring also told me that they were not able to h
  4. Ever since the Grand Rapids Press moved over off I-96 by Fruitridge the dowtown building has been almost completely usless, i've just recently noticed that they are building an expansion onto the building off the highway making me wonder after that is complete what will be left of the downtown building. We only moved our printing, packaging, a few managemnet offices and distribution center to Walker, everyonbe else still works in the downdown building, which istill holds the majority of the workforce.
  5. the lowest bid was by Christman, but it was still about 13 million more than what the airport was expecting. the press states that they may have to cut some corners Here is part of the link: Sticker shock at Gerald R. Ford International Airport isn't confined to airfare. There's also the proposed parking ramp, with a glass-and-steel canopy, which could cost $13.7 million more than expected. The lowest construction bid came in at $118 million -- 13 percent higher than what airport officials expected to pay. That is forcing airport leaders to rethink plans and look at
  6. Wow 1200 feet long. a quarter of a mile is 1320
  7. Todays' anouncement stated that they would like to begin construction in September and be finished by October of 2009
  8. I agree Rizzo, i would love to see the area designated as the medical mile. Health hill is ok but a little bland. Pill Hill just sounds backwoods to me.
  9. ) I would say the design that we've seen here for a while is going to be it. I agree, but i still love proposal 3, lits less blocky looking
  10. I love the rendering o Proposal 3, does anyone know why it was not chosen? Does it still have any chance?
  11. Crate & Barrel out. That too bad, my wife won't be happy about that.
  12. Wood radio is reporting today that one of these buidlings will have a hotel at the top of it. Is that new news or has this always been in the plans?
  13. Wow $274 million would make it the single most expensive project in downtown's history, eclipsing the $250 million spent on Devos Place, althoguh i think it would probably cost more than $274 million to build DP if they were to start today.
  14. "People new to the area will probably think Health Hill is the whole "downtown": i was thinking the same thing recently, but i also think that RH will be very visable from a lot of places, even if it is the only thingt hat clears the hill from that veiw
  15. There must be someome out there who knows how tall it will be in feet?
