The father and son development team of Joseph W. and Joseph A. Moch of Moch International have submitted a letter of interest for the project.

A statement from Moch International says its proposal "leverages private investment for the benefit of public facilities complementing the amazing strides taken by Grand Rapids over the last ten years."

Joseph A. Moch said in a statement: "Our goal is to integrate the site into the existing framework of downtown by creating facilities beneficial to the Van Andel Arena and the DeVos Place Convention Center, while creating new and enticing entertainment, cultural offerings and residential alternatives for Grand Rapids and all of West Michigan."

Another proposal submitted has the words RiverGrand on the front of it. 24 Hour News 8 has reported developer Duane Faust's plan is titled RiverGrand Development. But there is no word yet if this particular proposal is connected to Faust.

Film showed the younger Moch getting his parking ticket stamped for the free parking.

I don't doubt Moch could pull something off. The question is do we want him to? Perhaps he plans to add alligators to the Grand River.

They are putting in a proposal to buy a $35 million dollar piece of property and he can't pay for his own parking???

And to think of the doubts people will have on the local developers not capable of a project this size. I wonder how this is all going to come together especially when Shannon has said that the developers have to justify their investments with market studies.

I was thinking the same thing. He builds 'em slightly ugly, but he has been the only one to put the rubber to the road so far. If he does it, I hope he brings back the original towers (but twice as high). ;)

Perhaps... Ah, and this will amount to a Grand conspiracy to keep downtown "A secret."

Moch's proposal may be just a way to get in the Press. Can you imagine the non-stop press coverage for the next couple of months. And, it will help get some attention for their apartment complex they're building in that area. Pretty smart.

As I understand it, Moch's proposal is almost Plagiarism! It take Faust's posted plan and duplicates it.

Small wonder, that he was trying to keep it quiet for as long as possible. being an "outsider" and all.

"The Mochs have plans to build a 171-unit apartment complex at 235 Grandville Ave. SW, near the city-owned site. They also are building Icon on Bond, a nine-story, 118-unit condominium project north of downtown at 538 Bond Ave. NW."

What is this 171-apartment complex? Has this been talked about around here?
