New projects in Monroe North


Recommended Posts

Getting kind of hard to keep up with and catalog all the new projects going on.

 

Orion Development has purchased the law firm that sits across from The Boardwalk for a potential high rise residential development on the riverfront. Some people at the city actually told me the owners were interested in selling about a year ago. Too rich for my blood. :)

I love this photo not just because it's showing progress and looks all summery,  but hopefully it will end this boring ass discussion about movies in the parking lot that's been happening all week.

Most of the development news put forth by Mlive the past month has been that a transaction has happened and that the developer plans to do something at sometime.  Mlive is turning into the anecdotal news network.   Not saying they were super credible before but they seem to be getting worse.

The old Icon on Bond thread is locked (forever) so I thought I'd post this here.

 

There's something eerily strange about this article about Ralph Hauenstein and Icon on Bond (and no his condo is not in Icon). See if you can figure out what it is. :)

(Yes, it's a code breaking exercise using an article about code-breaking, I get the irony, lol).

I'm not a good code breaker.  That was the best I could come up with.  Surely someone else is better at this sort of thing?

 

The LLC's that were formed for the two vacant Icon parcels had names from the code-breaking operation talked about the in story. The LLC's were formed probably 4 or 5 years ago when the project was foreclosed. Just a really weird coincidence that I noticed it at almost precisely the same time I had looked up the LLCs and read the article.

Yep. They wanted to announce later this week but its going to be hard to keep it under wraps when you post pics on your FB page. :) good for them though. I think theyve been scouting spots for a while.

I noticed the small law firm on the riverfront (across from the Boardwalk) was being vacated today by Two Men & A Truck trucks.

 

I don't know the timeline but the property was purchased by Orion in November last year.

Essence Restaurant Group (Green Well, Grove, BBV) apparently plans to open a new restaurant on land owned by 616 next to 820 Monroe.

Nice article relevant to this topic.  Must of missed the chatter about Gray Skies Distillery (love that name). 

 

FYI SpeakEZ has become one of my favorite go to restaurants.  Unique delicious menu.

I just use a different browser when I reach my limit.  I'm sure it must be stored in a cookie.  You could try to clear it, but that would require work to figure it out. And the different browser trick seems to work. 

 

It's about as silly as the Crain's Detroit website.  You can't read an article on the site unless you subscribe.  But if you just Google the headline and then click on the Google search link you can read the story without a subscription.
