  1. I see what your saying but Domain in Austin is totally different concept than Tanger outlet centers. Domain has heavy restaurant and bar mix with small but medium/high end retail. But perhaps Tanger is trying out something like than on a "cheaper" end of the scale and yes GR is prime for a Topgolf its a golf market and they're expanding rapidly to similar size markets, they need a fair amount of space and like to be near retail and highways so that would be a great location for one
  2. Is it just me or is the front door of this place extremely lame, I mean theres a slight retro facade but you can easily drive by and not notice what it is. Now thats theres a casino involved they should put up a sign that grabs your attention like a real casino or a real theater would....
  3. Not sure how you wouldn't believe they would save money long term? even if initial costs of implementation and/or maintenance is higher in wind or solar farms than a coal plant (which it may or may not be).......but the fuel is free so yes sad to see the trains go but think of the cost saving in not having to constantly mine something and the logistics of transporting it and just to one small plant in MI so overall impact of all these coal plants eventually shutting does will be huge savings at the expense of coal and rail jobs. Yes things have to be mined to make the "clean or green energy" p
  4. lol the grandville has its back to the river, then mows down all the trees except the ones right on the river and wedeges a parking ramp then a surface parking lot next to it, at least the tx one has a dock and a couple of buildings to embrace the waterfront there
  5. Just noticed an update from the airport showing mock control tower layout and looked somewhat odd, maybe heptagon shaped. Glad they seem to be moving forward with all of the project elevate expansion plans (slowly) including the control tower which they said was too short but commented it was still at least 3-5 years out. Interestingly the currently tower is apparently the 2nd oldest tower in US top 100 airports, its estimated at 136ft and the new similar looking ones recently built in kzoo and TC are listed at 166 and 160 ft. so hope they building something aesthetically pleasing and taller t
  6. Not sure if this should be here or restaurants, I dont visit mlive much at all anymore since the comments and free articles went away and now some are complete bias/agenda but saw this announcement and looks like a really cool addition to the Ada village thing going on there https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2021/05/garage-bar-grill-plans-new-ada-location.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=grandrapidspress_sf&fbclid=IwAR0sHKleeNRYf9ck8PUAL4gtBiESjHHUorOxOhf_JjIY3wHlSLKD4_qbBrs but with just a single story its begging for a rooftop section!
  7. they do realize they live in a city? I would say decent filling at least along Bristol but might close in a bunch of land thats not being used is the bigger issue. I always wondered why there are several patches of land on the NW and NE side that never got developed as city streets in a more organized grid or suburban infill pattern like inner SE/SW areas or like metro Detroit, Chicago did in the same era of housing 40s-60s?
  8. speedway sucks as a company, obvious price gouging at least when they were an Ohio company maybe less so now that they sold out to the Japanese. Buccess is a little ridiculous and way more of a travel center/destination almost mini-walmart type and really only in the south, pretty sure if Waffle House isnt this far north, Buccess wont be for the foreseeable future especially with gas engines, prices and travel patterns changing rapidly. Best chain gas stations missing from this area are probably Kum and Go or Caseys General stores and theres also pretty much no travel center/newer truck stops
  9. At least MI finally hit 10mil officially
  10. small waterpark possibly, the old splash/bulwinkles place on 28th street wasnt that old when it closed! But an amusement park takes up way too much space and wouldnt be economically viable, the only urban one I can think of is downtown Denver built when the land was wasteland, now developers will do anything to get it
  11. Lol must have been competitive, pre-pandemic business had Greenville ranked ahead of GR in breweries per capita, https://www.foodandwine.com/beer/craft-beer/cities-most-craft-breweries
  12. like most other new buildings here, 2 or 3 more floors would seem to make a substantially more impact in that area with the profile of the building
  13. Funny video, I'm very familiar with Greenville and there are certainly many comparisions with trends here and other cities around the country ie. breweries, former factory lofts, gentrification etc. Its a very nice city and impressive in many ways and at about 70k so about 1/3 the size of GR. I wouldn't necessarily say it has more than GR but for comparisons sake I would say it packs a punch for its size, there seems to be more retail national chain options not seen in GR in restaurants, hotels ect. The infrastructure is probably better at least nicer wider highways and airport is very spacio
  14. definitely sounds like a low demand route that was already canceled by Allegiant, but appears there is one added seasonally to Sarasota, one that is currently covered by Allegiant so must be demand there along with all the other FL cities! Not complaining about added competitive routes but would still love to see more west coast routes not served. Hopefully the expansion will provide them and speaking of that, looks like they finished up some prep work where you can see the outline that was not repaved, looks like a much wider and longer footprint, may even look like a big airport when comple
