  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Hi all. Im looking into some free online architecture courses, any rec's? I was looking at these: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/architecture/
  4. 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

Let's make our children's children proud!
  6. what a terrible waste... sell it to UofM and get another university in GR
  7. if houseman field is already 10,000 seats, then why do we need a new stadium?
  8. Here here, i think im at 12 years now?
  9. Why not just brick them all the way...
  10. Am I the only one that doesn't like this? It's so uninspiring. Has so much garbage been put up lately that when something is OK we like it? Then again, its probably just me. Haha
  11. That Two Hudson building *swoon im in love
  12. Can anyone get some progress pics for us overseas folks?
  13. http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2016/06/grand_rapids_main_post_office.html#incart_river_mobile_home Doubt its the Post Office
  14. what is also concerning, you have this small store and they want to stock craft beers and the such. how much space is dedicated to liquor? this could just be a gas station mart with a fancy beer list. I have no problem with this, i think DT needs more of those (upscale ones not the shaddy ones on division), but I doubt this will be a grocery store. *EDIT Just read the comment above (not sure how I missed it), so were still in the hunt for a grocery store, moral of the story
  15. A Walmart Express is 15,000 Sq. ft. and looking at a floor plan for one of them, this store at 3500 ft. is more of a 7-11 than a grocery store...
