Medical Mile/Michigan Street Developments


Recommended Posts

Correct me if I am wrong Sparky, but I think this is the building on the West end of the developement. They are just that high with the parking garage levels already.

Yes, that is the furthest West building in the complex, so yes, it would be the med school site. I haven't heard anything about plans being finished, so I believe they are still finishing off the parking ramp levels.

This building is not yet under construction.   Y'all there appears to be a discrepancy between the two renderings we have here.  The first rendering show's the view point on Monroe looking s

I’m thinking the architect is isolated at home wondering what all the fuss is about?

Google Earth has updated 3D images.   It’s amazing the presence all the new developments have all over the city.

Didn't necessarily want to start a new topic for this, but did anyone catch the front page of the Press today?

Van Andel Institute find could stem the spread of cancer

Researchers at VAI think they've identified the protein that causes cancer to spread (metastisize). Apparently most people who die from cancer don't die from the initial tumor, but from the cancer spreading. Now that they believe they've identified this "blebbing" protein, stopping it from moving could stop the spread of cancer.

Holy ****.

Holy crap indeed. So many of us have had or know someone who has had some form of cancer or anther. This is outstanding news.

I think the Van Andels can finally make money off of something besides soap :lol: (Thats a joke btw)

I hope this spurs some really interesting investment in DT GR...

Nice pics Dad.

Has anyone done a photoshop or sketchup view of what the HDCH will look like when entering downtown on 131 from the south? I was noticing how you can see the Cancer center as you drive into town. I wonder how much of the Children's hospital you will see and what the spire will look like from that angle. I'm pretty sure it will be the highest point in the skyline. Not to mention the crane!

Rats beergeek. You had me all excited. :D What was it?

Thought I spied the tower crane today...but it was just pieces of the boom to another crane laying on the ground. There is a bunch of steel on-site today that wasn't there yesterday, though.

My guess would be between phase I and II since construction seems to have spread to the south end of phase one.

There was a proposed tower I thought at one time for VAI, but I'm not sure where that went or where it would have gone.

In other good news, it looks like they are getting ready to bulldoze the surface lot:

Anyone know where the tower crane will go for this project?

If this were my construction project. I'd place the crane at the north west corner. That way materials can be staged either on Michigan St. or the cross street. I'm not sure when construction of Spectrum's new lobby is to start. But a second choice would be at the east side of the children's Hospital site so the crane can handle both the children's hospital and the new lobby at the same time.

Hate to jump the gun too much, but does anyone know where the tower crane will go up on this project? And whether it will be 1 or 2 tower cranes? The site has a rather large footprint:
