New projects in Monroe North

Sort of off topic, but anyone know the story behind what's going on at Gray Skies? Sounds like they're renaming? I recall hearing a while back they were being sued over their name?

 

I know the new name but I won't post about it yet until they make the announcement public. Apparently they had hundreds of choices that the lawyers kept shooting down because some part of the name was too close to some brewery or winery or specific beer, wine, or spirit. They definitely had to be creative!

That's NOBL, but not Monroe North.

I own property on Bradford and am excited to see that project moving forward.

  • COMING FALL 2020!
  • A vacant lot at the intersection of Lafayette and Bradford offered a unique opportunity to create housing in a walkable community near the Medical Mile. Bradford station, opening Fall 2020, will provide 23 well-appointed studio and one-bedroom apartments, and one ground floor retail space.
  • The 16,500 SF, all electric building is planned for LEED Zero Carbon and LEED for Homes certification, and will be complaint with the Grand Rapids 2030 District.
  • Bradford Station is located within walking distance to the Medical Mile and the GVSU Health Campus. With secure bicycle storage and an adjacent station for the Rapid Route 11, living without a car is a cost saving, practical, earth friendly option.
  • The Bradford Station apartments will be efficient, consume approximately 50% less energy than a standard new apartment by HERS rating, and allow a carbon neutral lifestyle.

Not in Monroe North.  But, still, very cool.

Oof, that's an unfortunate typo. :P

Definitely not Monroe North. I am excited to see some development along Lafayette, the near north side could use a 'corridor' of sorts and I hope this spurs on some more mixed use development. With GVSU expanding north and all the medical mile development, it'd make for a close place for students and hospital employees to live. 

Hopefully the next lot that gets developed is the one kitty-corner from the Bazzani project.

I have thought the same, but last time I drove by I noticed the building is leaning, not sure how bad it is or if it is a simple fix....

I would think we'd be getting pretty close to this and other parcels being developed.  GVSU owns the block west of Finkelstein and pretty much everything east to College.  I heard awhile ago they were looking at putting a hotel on College just north of the highway, but never heard what happened with that.  Also haven't heard much about the gravel lot just north of F-stein that was supposed to be low income housing.

I wish Rockford would make some moves in the area, their projects have been some of my favorites as of late....

I seem to recall that the tax credits connected to low-income housing project were not approved in the last round by the state and they're waiting for the next submission window.

Anybody got any North Monroe projects to talk about here?  I keep thinking I'm in the Belknap thread lol.

Last time I tried to move something, I merged two topics. :) I think it's easier to move something into a new topic than selectively move posts into an existing one. So we'll either have to let it ride, or if another moderator has a better idea, move away. 

Try to keep any comments about the Belknap projects in the Belknap thread. Thanks!

It is parking for County employees. This property was part of a series of land-swaps in this area between the City, County, and MSU. The County lost a parking lot along the river so this property was traded and subsequently torn down. Not the best use for this lot but better than parking being along the river. Hopefully it won't stay parking for long. 

County employees taking advantage of the new lot

Bureaucratic red tape holding up official use, or the county miscalculated, and it turns out they won't need for another 5 years?

One of the lights is out so it probably didn't pass safety requirements...
