Mt. Vernon near GVSU is being turned into a pedestrian mall. Starts this Spring.

So the billboard.  Is that a long term lease in place that can't be broken?  

Glad this project is moving forward.   How does the Rapid station under 131 look, don't think I've seen the finished product.

I swear, this obsession with brown and beige in Grand Rapids is starting to get depressing.  Let's see some creativity.

One bag of Cheetos + 15 minutes = wa la...

Are you suggesting we should send variety packs of Frito-Lay product to various local design firms, to see if it assists in adding aesthetics and common sense to potential upcoming projects?

Personally, I think the stations under the bridge look so-so. They added a lot of weird flourishes that I think won't age well. I think they'll be well used, and 131 provides a nice cover from the elements, but I feel like they missed the mark on the boulevard/fencing, etc.

Also, there's almost no signage on the westbound side...not even "Pew Station." Maybe it's just not in yet?
