It must be for medical/surgical offices because the new HQ's in Monroe North is planned to be all non-clinical office people, correct? 

It would make sense if it were more ambulatory space.  Though they would also be opening a bunch of existing space  in 25-35 Michigan St by building the innovation center in NoMo(or whatever they are calling it).  That would be a bunch of new clinical space on the hill if that building were built.    I've been out of the loop for the goings on at Spectrum for over a year now.  Maybe they really do have demand for that much more activity on the hill.  Or maybe it's just another alternative for the administrative space and they are considering not going forward building on Monroe?  Though that wouldn't make a lot of sense since it would only add to the parking concerns.   Spectrums plans seem like they constantly evolve.

A coworker is moving out of their office in Cook. Building is coming down in March. 

It will be ambulatory space, primarily cardiovascular and I think cancer.  Yes to some outpatient services moving from 25/35. There's not a lot of admin there really. The hospital administration that is there will probably move to the North Office Building to the current system office, and system leadership will go to CTI I'm guessing.

The CTI building is still on. There's a crane on the ground that looks like it is about to go up.

That's not old and the one they already added to, by chance?

 

Otherwise, no idea. The Spectrum ramp off Lafayette?

Don't know. It's under the "pending" section:

(original) Foundation work and new shear walls required for future vertical expansion of parking ramp.

I had a hard time placing it at first too. So the darker building is GVSU, and the building will front Michigan in front of the ramp. Nice! Can't wait to see some more detailed renderings. The windows look nice and transparent in this pic.

I don't know anything about this business other than Doug Meijer is on their board of directors but WOODTV and the Right Place say they are moving their world headquarters into the new Doug Meijer building.  Can't find anywhere anything about where their world headquarters might be currently:

Story today on WOODTV about this start-up:

Hope something good comes from this and it's not just hype.  And it's nice to read that Birgit Klohs is still keeping busy now that she's retired.

The crumbling south ramp on Lyon and Barclay is finally coming down:

Quote

The existing Grand Rapids Medical Center South Ramp at the corner of Barclay Avenue and Lyon Street is scheduled to close on April 16 to be decommissioned. We are excited to announce a new eight-level ramp with nearly 1,000 parking spaces will be built on the same site and will open in the summer of 2024. The capacity of the current ramp is 495 spaces. In alignment with the overall system strategy to provide more on-site parking for our team members, the new ramp will remain dedicated to team members once open.

Yay!  A new parking ramp!  :) :) I wonder if this means Spectrum, will look to sell their lots further down Michigan and the massive one on Plymouth?  Do they even still do shuttles to those lots?  I feel like I don't see the lines of people waiting for them anymore.

There appears to be something about to take place with the home @715 Michigan St. NE and 709 (I think I got that address right). There is a singular fence around both buildings (One home and one storefront), and the sign out front is Orion Construction.

They'd be smart to add air rights, but what would you put there? And would it interfere with the aeromed copters?
