  1. Staybridge Suites announced for west side

    It is an extended stay concept, maybe they like the idea of off the beaten path yet close to a lot?
  2. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    I don’t really understand what frontier is trying to do here since all of the routes are already served by at least one or two other Airlines. I am all for more choices but would love to see some new ones. LAX? Boston? JFK? Phoenix? Miami?
  3. Highway and Road Construction Updates

    Only seems natural, they should add a Knapp street exit while they are at it
  4. Mangiamo/Paddock Place Residential Development

    As expected anything “Grand” gets downsized to hardly noticeable
  5. RFP - 201 Market

    Obviously anything is better than what’s currently there but Not a game changer without better river utilization....underwhelmed with the river but only one that looks legit, also too bad it’s out of state. At least they could improve the river front later like pedestrian bridge to connect to gvsu, use the island as a park and maybe someday a marina. I hope the city has a clause for that
  6. There’s also a major difference and need to go from 2 lane sections with little and left merges to a Safer and quicker 3+ lanes with better merge. 2 lanes is what is the minimal requirement and what is sufficiently used in places like rural Montana where traffic counts are 1% of the traffic counts in a 2 lane urban freeway in GR. True that going from 5 lanes and expanding to 6 the impact on traffic is minimal. Going from 2 to 3 lanes is long overdue here.

  8. Founders Brewing Company Expansions

    I think another point would be to have sufficient parking FOR the central station. If there was a ramp for that and marketed it for use on Amtrak, buses and carpooling. If there ever was a streetcar it could be more of a commuter parking ramp too
  9. East Beltline Developments

    What happened to REI? I wish whole foods would buy that d&w out too
  10. New projects on the West Side

    I like the orange...should use more of that to contrast all the grey siding and grey skies
  11. Suburban Projects

    I hope it's not rebuilt as another Citgo! Would love to see that Venezuelan company go away in favor of a more American or regional brand!
  12. Amazon looking for a city to put HQ2

    That's great that some homers are writting nice letters to Amazon, but it really doesn't do much unless it comes from credible sources that are not biased and not local
  13. Redevelopment along 28th Street

    Yeah I did not like when they took over the Cinemark's. Too little competition leads to overpriced and lagging in modern movie theater amenities.
  14. Yea gota step up the mural game. Denver has some really cool ones
  15. Wikipedia - Grand Rapids

    That's really cool. Nice update, is the blob at bob not even 150'?
