  1. This is a good time to send letters and comments to the Planning Commission, or better yet show up for the hearing. It would be sad to see another surface lot on that part of Wealthy St.
  2. There is a Public Hearing Notice for September 13th, 2018 at the Planning Commission meeting for the Demolition of the building at 141 Wealthy and 348 La Grave Ave SE (old McGraw Tire) and a Special Land Use request for using the property for a Surface Parking Lot for 55 cars for Mary Free Bed. You can find details including site plan here: 141 Wealthy and 348 La Grave Ave SE

    Division / Wealthy and ICCF

    Hmmm. It was an approximately 1/2 acre undisclosed lot near Wealthy and Division for sale. It was listed with Berkshire Hathaway at over $2 million. The listing stated that the owner didn't want it publicly marketed. Just wondering if anyone had more info. Here is the cached listing.

    Wealthy Street Mega Thread

    An important Preservation Brief from National Park Service: http://www.nps.gov/tps/how-to-preserve/briefs/46-gas-stations.htm "Abandoned historic gas stations have in the past been viewed as a hindrance to the redevelopment of a neighborhood or community. Yet sensitive rehabilitations can ensure that the historic character of these buildings is preserved while providing for an economic reuse. "
  7. Do we know who bought Kent Novelty yet? Sale closed last week.

    THE Downtown Market updates

    Nearby DTM and sticking with the BBQ theme, The "Horseshoe Smokehouse" is getting ready for their opening. The new restaurant is located in the old Horseshoe Bar building across from the Grand Rapids Ballet on Grandville. This property is really coming to life after all these years. Kudos to the owner. The restaurant ad for employees states: "From scratch kitchen serving classic and modern BBQ." and "This is a fast casual restaurant with limited table service." Might be a good food alternative for people going to Founders or looking for a lunch option near downtown.

    There have been at least a dozen single family homes in Heritage Hill that have sold for over $300K since the beginning of 2013 when its market started to return to normal.

    Division / Wealthy and ICCF

    629, 635 and 645 S. Division were purchased in the last few years by corporations that share the same address as Van Eerden Foodservice Company. I'd keep an eye on the west side of the 400 block. Change is in the air.
  11. Anyone know what time the announcement is expected? http://www.woodtv.com/dpp/news/local/grand_rapids/more-arena-district-plans-unveiled

    345 State St

    Look for 42 apartments at this site from an experienced developer soon. It coincides with the annoucement of a cohesive plan for the area.

    Mary Free Bed Expansion

    Kudos to the hospital for agreeing to keep the corner open and planning infrastructure for a future retail development. This project is great for the healthcare community and the neighborhood.
