    Does the building have some parking inside? If they have low staff numbers, I would be trying to park in the loading docks rather than deal with the cold. I feel like I remember seeing some internal drive in area?

    Looks like the old Red Ball Jet location might be getting some new life. A co-worker said he recently saw lights and possible work happening in the space. Also early Feb. it was sold to 1431 PLAINFIELD LLC for $540,000. Anyone have info?

    The "Affordable Housing" Discussion in GR

    Can you point to the page that has these comments. I am not aware of a Eastown Neighborhood Association. There is a Eastown Community Association, and I am not seeing a lot of discussion on this topic on that page?

    Grand Rapids Restaurant Rumor Mill

    I heard a rumor that Taqueria San Jose will be closing because the owners are moving away? Is this true?

    But they don't have a location. Its like me saying I'm going to open a restaurant there. I have no agreement, nothing signed. I can't, in good faith, say I my restaurant will be there.

    I watched the video on their Facebook page about the announcement. They seemed to say that they "hoped" and that it was not confirmed. They also stated that the building they are "hoping" to get into would not be built for a few years. I guess it seems a bit early to announce when you have no contract or agreement, you have years to wait until the space is completed.

    New projects in East Hills

    From what I have heard, she is using her own funds and unless she is able to bring in others and outside money, this will take a very long time.

    Hey, what's that?

    Actually had more to do with Chris Boden, the director, illegally participating in bitcoin trading.

    Hey, what's that?

    The National Science Institute (Geek Group) has nothing to do with Tech Shop. They actually hated Tech Shop. The Homeland raid documents are sealed right now and no one is talking, so it might be a while before we get into. Some media mentioned that the IRS was also onsite. There are a load of things it could be. The Geek Group has had tax issues in the past when they were located in Kalamazoo. They also are a Non-Profit that takes donations of equipment and materials, maybe that is part of it. They also Dabble in Bitcoin, maybe that has something to do with it. They also allow members of the Institute, members who pay, from all over the world, they allow those members access to use onsite servers and computer systems. So maybe that has something to do with it. Im sure we will find out and it won't be as exciting as we all hoped.

    You mean the old Kregel building? https://mibiz.com/item/25094-616-development-turns-to-mixed-income-housing-to-move-delayed-projects-forward 616 Development kind of Imploded. I have not heard much, It has gone through a few different owners and has some barriers based on city requirements.

    Life Expectancy: East Grand Rapids v Eastown

    I do think that the data is biased. Death will be attributed to the city where the death certificate is written. East has no senior living facilities, pushing those deaths to the surrounding areas. East also probably, has less elderly staying in their homes, most moving to facilities or to suburban areas, because of housing values. These biases, push the age higher because those who die, die out of the city. Those that stay, are older die with their home. Where you die, is not where you lived. The rate is often lower where there are senior facilities. If one were to map out the facilities on top of this map you can see a correlation.
