"3100 Flats" - Knapp Street NE

Recommended Posts

They don't have the money for the 3rd lane all the way. Plus if entering vehicles would use all the ramp o get up to 70, they could merge in relatively smoothly. Nope, as soon as the get to the mainline then almost stop and  cut over backing everything up. People don't know how to drive :(

 

 

There should be a short breakable barrier that extends the entire length of the current solid white line. Force people to accelerate in the merge lane.

 

Two very good points.  Thanks.  I think the best solution to the traffic there is to reduce the highway to one lane for cars and put in something like 8 bike lanes.

Let's also try what LA and Chicago have with a separated express lane.. but in this case for bikes.  So 8 lanes of local bike lanes and then 2 lanes of express bike lanes.

More imagery for this project. It's nice to see the suburban apartment complexes getting a little more upscale. And in this case, you can walk to shopping, the Rapid, and kayak. :)

I lived at Stone Falls of Ada for a bit while we were in the middle of a move and it was really nice. This complex reminds me of that. If that is the case, I think it is a great use of the land.

Also, I know this property was annexed by GR, but is it in the Forest Hills School District? If so, I think you'll see a lot of transplants that are moving to GR in this complex (much like Stone Falls of Ada).

"Doug Todd of Berkshire Hathaway represented American Kendall Properties."

This apartment project is a Warren Buffett development?

Berkshire Hathaway has a Realtor division. I see their signs on properties all over town (including modest single-family houses).

Yes, they have quite a few offices in West Michigan now. Some of them do residential and commercial.

The other apartment project across the Beltline near Spectrum was reviewed by the planning commission last night and moves on to a public hearing next month. That will add about 500 upper-end market rate apartments to the Knapp's Corner area.
