  1. I've been turned into a Coloradan, but I managed to make it back to Grand Rapids for ArtPrize last year and this weekend. The event is a ton of fun and thanks to the community for supporting it.
  2. Denver's newest downtown office building housing Xcel Engergy. The pile of dirt is from the excavation of the Union Station transit center being built.
  3. Here is a render from DenverInfill.com. I'm not sure how up to date it is.
  4. Embassy Suites hotel located downtown:
  5. Ok, here's a 5 story residential project at 13th and Downing called Alta Vera.
  6. I've been planning on submitting some updates on a few of the countless infill projects, but I haven't gone out to get some pictures yet. Check back soon.
  7. You have some great photos RestedTraveler. Were these all taken in the same trip?
  8. Not sure if this is a serious proposal or just a concept. A high rise hotel that would replace a couple low rise buildings along the 16th street mall. Hotel 31 by TAAG architects in Denver:
  9. Office tower under construction in Lodo.
  10. I didn't get a good look at it, but I think a big yellow crane is sitting on Michigan St. right now. Edit: It's just being used to take down tower 2's crane, MSU Med School is still craneless.
  11. This is the best thread on UP. Detroit has amazing photographers.
  12. Thanks Chris, I didn't know GVSU had a website for that stuff. Mackinac Hall will be huge when that's done.
  13. Grand Valley doesn't put out many renderings. I've never seen any for Lake Ontario Hall, the new Mackinaw Hall addition, or the Honors college. You have to know people to see some of the designs I think. Drawings of the Kirkoff Center addition are up in the lobby, but it's a pretty boring and plain addition.
  14. I thought they did a nice job with this building:
  15. What's the rundown on this May 8th vote? Who's voting (Kent County?) and what's on the ballot?
  16. Perhaps the fish ladder? I haven't been to that joint in awhile. Oh, and GRdadof thats an amazing pic of the Amway .
  17. Tigers hit seven homers today! Should be a fun year.
  18. I don't know why, but I love the State of Michigan building. Thanks for posting those.
  19. Grand Valley's women's basketball team is playing in the Division II national championship game right now on ESPN2. If they win it will be GVSU's third national championship of the year following the football and volleyball teams. Go Lakers!
  20. Look at downtown back in the day. That's the kind of vibrant city we can only hope to create today. I think every kid that grew up in GR has had their pic taken with that statue.
  21. The 2004 Census estimate for Grand Rapids was 195,115 and 197,800 back in 2000. I think this was the number GR officials were complaining about because they thought it was too low. The 2005 estimates come out this spring or summer I think.
