Is that blue on the left the hotel?  Icon 2 is certainly taller than that isn't it?  I'm guessing the red in the middle is the hotel at the convention center?

Icon 2 is only about 170 feet tall and closer to the river. Compare that to the old Amway Grand building that is 150 feet.

The red in the middle is the DeVos Hotel. It may stand at about 270 feet, or slightly taller than the Marriott.

I have NO IDEA where to put this so feel free to move it as necessary. Also if anyone knows more about this and can substantiate any of it PLEASE DO! 

I had a conversation with someone last night who is friends with one of the owners of one of the antique shops in the giant warehouse across from the Amtrak Station on Century. He said that the stores have been bought out of their leases and that the building is going to be completely renovated to also include a brewery, a coffee shop/operation??? and a ton of housing. I would love to know if this is all true as this is a HUGE building in a very interesting spot. I'll ask around today as well.

I was told by someone that rents space in there that the whole thing will be moving to somewhere around 131 and 28th St.  They were told hotel.

Hmmm, that's super interesting. The building is huge and really chopped up. I went to a DJ show there a month or so ago and the spaces were super cool.

The building recently changed hands:

More details I've dug up: Based on the address and registered agent for the holding company, my best guess is that this is one company involved:

http://www.fhmanagement.com/

Check out all of these "CGFH" properties:

Most/all acquired in 2017.

Assuming that "FH" stands for First Holdings, I wonder what "CG" stands for...

GRBJ reported some of their mortgages here: http://www.grbj.com/articles/print/89503-mortgages

Here's an article on the lender: https://mibiz.com/news/real-estate/item/20911-lansing-firm-plans-

You know, I always thought Godfrey could have some warehouses re-purposed into mixed use buildings. Wonder what FH has planned for them?

That would be great. I love Lost and Found, so I hope they find a new location, but that could be a pretty incredible housing (or office) project. Will be interesting to see what happens!

Wow, good investigative work organsnyder. Those properties on Godfrey include the old McInerney Spring factory, or I think it was even owned by Keeler Brass for a while:

That building would need a LOT of work if it were ever to be used for a living space.  I used to work in portions of it about 5 years ago and it was in pretty rough shape then.

I've always thought that too.  I'm definitely curious if anythings going on with all of that.

I was at Lost and Found on Friday and the guy there told me that the plan is to move all three vintage shops to Godfrey St where some work/live spaces will be renovated and the Century St buildings will be worked on. He said they have a three year lease so I would imagine things wouldn't actually start happening for a bit.

I was just in there on Saturday, left and realized I had completely forgotten to ask about this. Good to know they aren't going away (or really moving that far either).

Does anyone know what's going on at the north east corner of Myrtle and Alpine. The old gas station has been barricaded off. Possible project of some kind?

I believe a multi-use/function housing development is going in on that conrner. Seem to recall its either Lighthouse or KCLBA affiliated.
