    Between 1:00 and 5:00 today they added three sections to the tower crane. They were also starting to assemble a large crane on a truck - to add the higher sections? Fitz

    It looks pretty much the same on the exterior. The earlier drawings you saw probably had the building going all the way to the south end of the property, basically sharing a wall with VAI. The new design is scaled back without the school, hence the parking lot on the south side. South wall in the new plan will basically be where the south wall of the current building is. Fitz

    Plans are moving forward. The school has moved off site - currently at the New Community church building on Dean Lake Ave. - plan is for two years at that site. Future location to be determined, but as of now it will not be back at the church on Michigan. Plan is for a two story Ministry Center. Will have a parking lot where the VAI crane is currently standing. Tentative schedule is for demolition of the old school in February, new construction in March. Somewhere there is a thread for the church/school building. I expect that thread will be resurrected once there is some action on the site. Fitz

    It looks like the narrowing comes from the south side. The earlier renderings show the building all the way out to Crescent St.

    As a member of Immanuel, I can tell you that the church plans have no bearing on VAI's timetable.
