Now seems like a good time to remind, Google Maps Street View has an option to view historical imagery. Just click the clock icon in the desktop viewer, and it gives you a date slider. It's great for seeing the progress that's been made over the last decade or so.

Sadly, for some older pictures, quality is poor. If I had a nickle for every pixel in those pictures, I'd have three cents.

 

But yes, it is super cool to see.

I never knew that. What a cool feature! Thanks!

Looking at the Accela permit map, it looks like 1220 West Fulton is being renovated to be Squibb Coffee and Rise Bakery. Not sure if anyone can confirm this. If so, this is a great location for a coffee shop. The Laker Line will have an inbound and outbound platform within a stone's throw of the building.

And the family that owns and operate it are seriously THE BEST. Great people, great hearts, great for the neighborhood.

They've actually stocked a lot of the shelves. If you go by and peak in the windows it is amazing to see it filled with products/merchandise/etc.

I noticed Halloween merchandise through the garage doors. I don't want to think that far past this summer.

Brady is a mutual friend of MJLO, sfloria and me. He lives on the Westside too.

All the products add a lot of color! What an exciting time for Grand Rapids!

Are those all a bunch of lazy-susan shelves in a cooler of sorts? What a great way to maximize selection and item diversity in a smaller footprint.

I think those are filled with greeting cards now.

Not as big of crane news as Studio Park but there's a crane being assembled at the site of that mixed-use project near the Anchor Bar. Couldn't get a pic of it. Just a standard boom crane, which is surprising for such a tight site.

I'm actually really excited about this project. I love that it will connect some of the anchors along Bridge, bring more height down the street, and bring two vital businesses to the mix. It's kind of hard (read as exhausting) to be excited about so many different projects. haha.

I believe that is for the auger-cast piles they are installing this week.

We need to give it a name. I hate calling it "you know, that one project where Red Lion used to be? Next to Anchor Bar?" 

I'll have to go back and see if it has a name.

I've just been calling it the North Peak building.
