Gallery on Fulton

Recommended Posts


Activity on this site. They're moving the fences out onto Ionia, and they might be doing the same on Fulton (have barrels lined up). Hopefully not another false start.

Correction, they moved the fences onto Commerce. Ionia is one street away.

Right, on Commerce. Based on other similar projects, we can probably expect this thing to be above ground by next Summer.

:yahoo:

It's about time the ball started rolling on this project. It will be a great addition to that part of DT when things are down. Plus have UICA closer to Kendall College will be a bonus for the art students their.

Triangle moves in another construction trailer. Digging continues.

Pictures taken from a 3rd floor apartment at 21 Weston.

For more see the 2 West Fulton / UICA album set.

Great pics John! You'll have the perfect vantage point until the 4th floor or so. :) Can you see 38 Commerce out the other side of the building?

Also, it looks like the old foundation for the City Center ramp is being exposed. Wonder if they'll leave it or claw it out of there?

I'm not sure how long I will have access to the apartment in the back. I will have access to one on the front, but not sure when. I can always get shots from the roof. Although I may not go up there if there is much snow. Some residents may allow me to take some shots from their apartments.

Fulton Street is down to one lane BOTH ways because of giant holes in the street. I am assuming it's related to this project. I need to remember to alter my commute. I miss my broken P&S camera.

Don't fret fotoman, I have some nice views to take pictures from.

Here is one from yesterday of the crane that has arrived:

From a 3rd floor window, I saw the "hammer" machine blow an hydralic line while chiseling the old ramp concrete.

when does the main crane go up? i assume not for a while, as they are not even done excavating yet.

Tower crane? Probably next Summer would be my guess.

That Grand Rapids Police Department wall needs a mural! ^_^

I was just on the RSC and Assoc. website and it seems that the renderings there look much different than what has been posted here and shown elsewhere. has the design changed? or does their website just need updating?

That's an old rendering. You can see the evolution of the design in this post:

I wonder if we'll see two tower cranes on this project. The site is pretty long at just over 250'.
