I dont think the city would have let cvs get away with something like they did in eastown downtown the area is too important. I think a pharmacy downtown would be a great idea with all the medical facilities going up on Michigan its odd that there isn't a major pharmacy in the core. One pharmacy on all of medical mile :huh:

What pharmacy is that? The one Rite Aid where the Red Geranium used to be is now closed. Is there another one I'm not thinking of?

The only one I can think of, other than the one I'm sure is in the hospital, is the Walgreens down to Michigan and Diamond. But, that's not really on "Medical Mile."

YES! YES! YES! That's what I'm saying. Maybe with that across the street, someone will be able to do something with the JA building, because I was looking at it today and was reminded just how s!!!!ty it looks.

A few more details:

) Closing on the land should take place either this Friday or Monday. I wonder if Geha will follow them to the Title office?

) Two West Fulton is still seeking an increase from the State for Brownfield Tax Credits, due to the project growing from $20 Million to $34 Million

) UICA is reportedly $3 Million into its campaign, which was on hold but can now continue, and plans to raise $6.5 Million

) Parking services will build a 262 space $9.4 Million ramp, at its expense, into this project

) Groundbreaking is now set for this summer, completion in 18 months (early 2010 by my calculations).

There is a rendering that I haven't seen before on the cover of Grand Rapids magazine. It's much more dense with the space above UICA utilized for apartments. It looks very cool.

When I got my magazine yesterday, I almost thought, "What?? A new project I know nothing about?" It is one of the better renderings...gets me even more excited about the project. I'm excited for all the projects they spotlighted... Did anyone notice how on the cover, they had to make the Police Station almost transparent so you could see the project? Funny, yet sad.

Don't taunt us! Show us!

I'll try to scan it when I get home...maybe someone else at UP can get it quicker.

Seriously, it doesn't look like any of the myriad of designs that we've seen already?3

I think it's the same as the latest (the 102nd rendering... =) ) but a totally new angle basically just showing the tower.

I think this was the only angle we had of what seems to be the latest.

On the GR Mag cover, the tower looks to be 14 stories tall, including the floors for parking.

I realized after I posted that I had my bearings wrong and the Division side looks the same. I like the new rendering though and I didn't realize that UICA was utilizing that much of the ground level.

So what are the "6 proposed projects with major impact?"

I'm guessing:

38 Commerce

Gallery on Fulton

Monroe North Hotel

Icon Hotel

Hyatt Place Mid Towne Village

Streetcar

I'm very excited to see this thing get started.
