Meijer and Rockford to build new grocery store on the near West Side

Recommended Posts

JMHO if it had been any other developer, Meijer would not have gotten involved. They don't want the Meijer name on it and set a precedent for small neighborhood Meijer stores.

 

Did I spell Meijer right?:P

Groundbreaking at 2pm today. Anyone going? We're headed over to check it out since I have a meeting across the street at 3. Ready to see this building go up!

Just Purple cow ice cream. They did have nice gift bags that had "I am West Side" shirts, Bridge Street Market pint glasses and other items. :)

Helping fund the after school program at Westwood middle school ... and really comfortable shirts.

I'm just realizing I should have posted my photo in this thread. Oops, my bad. 

That elevator shaft/column is going up quick. Just last Friday it was only 1.5 stories.

I wish! The upstairs apartment happens to be empty right now so we headed up there last night to check it out since the tenant just moved out. I had to step outside and get some photos when I saw the view. :) I'll keep taking photos as long as it's vacant but we really don't want it to be vacant long, of course!

Do you have the apartment listed anywhere? Asking for a friend. :)

UP needs to lease that sucker and set up constant surveillance of the site.

BOOM!!! I saw it yesterday too. I feel like this project is going up so quickly now. The scale and massing are really coming together.

Looks like WMCAT will be moving over to this project earlier than expected, by mid 2018. It says they will occupy the top floor of a 3 story building in the development?

The original design I thought was going to be 4 floors?

They (WMCAT) have an updated rendering on their website where it is three and slightly different design.
