Now down to the street, this is a newly renovated Michigan Ave. Building

Up close shot from across South Street - still working on pouring the underground garage. By the way, that 3 story brick building in the background is brand new Devissor Place

Also, snapped the front entrance of the new Chem building on WMU's main campus

Nice crane! So, about that underground garage. How many floors underground is that, and what development is it a part of?

thanks in advance. :)

It should have 2 underground parking levels plus 2 levels above ground. Atop that should be 4 floors for offices - this building is being developed primarily for Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone attorneys by the Catalyst/Greenleaf Companies. They have outgrown their old office building several block away. There will still be space left for other businesses as well though and although it was scrapped; I believe they may still leave the option of adding 3 floors of condos up top of all that.

Kazoo has such awesome potential, and it's good to see it finally being realized. I need to make it over that way, sometime. They seem to be doing a lot right in terms of urban development, in fact, more right than quite a few other larger cities in the city.

I'll have a few more pics soon; I am quite pleased with how the redevelopment of the Michigan Ave/Pitcher building is going. The orginial building is a 3 and 2 story and they have so far added on a 4 floor wing which has the facade going up as I type. However, so far i'm not 100% sure if I like the facade so much as well as the original brick building on the corner.

I'd think you'd like Kzoo, however, it is nice in the summer, it just feels a little bit slower and would personally recommend visiting while school is session as the activity is much higher and the city bustles with activity.
