GRAND RAPIDS -- Break out the hard hats again.

Downtown developers are planning to break ground on a string of long-planned projects this fall and winter with combined budgets of nearly $450 million.

Haha, yeah, I showed the article to a few others and did an "I told you so" about downtown being on the verge of the next development boom. ^_^ For them, a dead tree hard-copy always seems more convincing.
