  1. Probably same reason it took so long to get a Chik-fil-a. Detroit has one. So does Michigan City.
  2. utilitarian furniture with a splash of minimalistic design. And cheap. Ikea is the cheapest way to create a usable room that has a modern look. My kids rooms are almost 100% ikea. Trying to do the same with non ikea furniture would have cost 3X the cost.
  3. I agree and support this message.
  4. Ok who has the scoop on what is next? http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2017/03/meijer_gardens_to_expand.html Looks like the updated the article. Not super impressive but more main building expansion.

  6. Suffered from location issues and a pass by traffic. It was not much of a destination. Would have done better closer to downtown Grand Haven or Spring Lake.
  7. On the far east side of Wealthy. In Gaslight village, I just noticed that the Biggby Coffee near D&W has closed. Great to see that they forced out the Barber there and now they have an empty storefront.
  8. I could see a place like right brain brewery or another medium level name making it work
  9. 1. The church did sell the parking lot that the new development was built on, on Wealthy. 2. The Pastor does not list uptown church as a place of employment. 3. I have not seen activity in the building for a while.
  10. Brewery (wink)
  11. Heard, possibly, Uptown Church in Eastown is no longer holding services. What could the old Eastown Theater become? Is the rumor true, anyone have info?
  12. I am mainly talking about many of the long time residents that are some of those raising their voices against this. Owners that have been in their homes for 20+ years. I understand that the prospect of development around you can scare you. With increased development comes, cost, traffic, changing of the makeup of your surrounding area.
  13. 616-626 is the empty lot and house next to wealthy street bakery, not the strip mall. Strip mall is 623 wealthy and has had many variations of a full development. Did the stall because of Lagrand's Issues. http://www.mlive.com/business/west-michigan/index.ssf/2016/01/wealthy_street_bakery_founders.html They owned the strip mall for a while. Do they still?
  14. A lot of people on the west side don't care about property values. Property values just mean more taxes to them. They don't plan on moving and want to stay as long as they can. Only if they planned on selling do property values make sense, and they only see increase value and density pulling away the things they may like about their block.
