  1. UP needs to lease that sucker and set up constant surveillance of the site.

  3. Woodland Mall to get $100 Million makeover

    Brandon Bird has done a fantastic job commemorating the architectural contributions of Sears.
  4. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    I believe the long term plans for GRR involve expanding 8R/26L involve lengthening it and upgrading its capacity to handle commercial traffic. If you look at the 2004 master plan, it's pretty clear that they've mapped out the space for a third air-carrier runway. GRR 2004 Master Plan by Marc VM, on Flickr
  5. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    I doubt anything would happen before they made a move to rebuild 8R/26L. You'd have to tear up the runway to build the tunnel anyway, plus you have to go around the north tarmac and the flight services up there. I would also imagine that it will be significantly more costly to do at GRR than over at Holland, which is a tiny airport in comparison.

    Just for the record, the tower crane is gone. Any others on the horizon in downtown GR for us to look forward to?

    Yes. The big crane that they used to put it up is assembled and ready to take it down.
  9. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    I think the real news here is that there was once a franchise restaurant called “Mr. Ham and Mr. Beef.”
  10. Grand Rapids Airport (GRR) News and Developments

    Flew that route on Northwest once. I believe Lansing has that route now as well.
  11. I like the idea of combining Venice-style gondolas with the restored rapids, but that's just because I like to see people fall out of boats.
  12. UP Meetup

    I'll try to drop by...
  13. Cool beans. It's a really lovely expanse of dirt and gravel right now. Look forward to seeing something get started there...
  14. Calder Plaza Building to get makeover

    Drove past it the other day and thought the same thing. The rest of the building now looks like it's covered with an early 80's crust.
  15. 50 Monroe to get de-skinned?

    There's no accounting for taste.
