  1. this whole parking issue is why cities in Asia and Europe are superior to American mid-sized cities....
  2. Not too impressed with any of these developers. Unless im missing something they all look like stripmall and suburban office developers.. Rockford may be the best haha
  3. I wish it would've had a more upscale sounding name... like "Fredrick Meijer's" in fancy lettering haha
  4. For sure. Its solely the panels the make it hideous. Reminds me of the 80's for some reason haha
  5. God, that thing is hideous
  6. That place is hideous.... it looks like something that gets torn down to be replaced by something nice...
  7. Is that patch of land large enough for a new GVSU/GRFC stadium?
  8. I should have phrased it better, even in the beginning of the neighborhood, it was almost destined to be replaced. The architecture isnt substantial like in Heritage Hill to warrant protecting. Maybe back 70 years ago people didnt think about expansions the way people do now? Regardless, unless the house has been passed down for generations, the expectation that that neighbourhood would stay the same should have lessened each successive owner.
  9. The problem is, how can you move into a low density neighbourhood 300m away from the downtown of the second largest city in the state and expect it to remain low density? It's like those people that move into the immediate ring of the exurbs expecting it to remain and not turn into suburban sprawl. You want low density? move to the suburbs. It makes little sense to keep it as it is. IMO
  10. Hi all. Im looking into some free online architecture courses, any rec's? I was looking at these: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/architecture/
  11. IMO, the greatest loss of urban renewal.... i would crap a brick if a developer came along with the old plans and rebuilt it with a modern interior... Edit: looks like plans do exist https://www.google.co.id/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://grplpedia.grpl.org/wiki/images/d/da/222.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwjXyqbfrJHSAhVKMY8KHe_LD_gQFgghMAM&usg=AFQjCNHfbHb_MhcE6YuuRIJFhW65_VngpQ&sig2=hSV7kNj-sJpgsrruMTtUSQ
  12. https://www.change.org/p/grand-rapids-city-council-make-grand-rapids-michigan-a-sanctuary-city?recruiter=8875311&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_term=des-md-no_src-no_msg The above link will redirect you to a site where you can sign a petition that will be sent to the GR City Council asking them to make GR a sanctuary city. Let's make our children's children proud!
  13. what a terrible waste... sell it to UofM and get another university in GR
  14. if houseman field is already 10,000 seats, then why do we need a new stadium?
  15. Here here, i think im at 12 years now?
