Anyone know what is going in at this site where an old comedy club used to stand? The site is demolished, looking like construction will start this fall.

There have been signs up for a couple years promoting a new retail center. In fact, I think it still says "Coming Aug 2006".

Not a good location for another strip mall.

That was the original plan but it looks like they didn't buy the comedy den property. The other developer is adding office buildings and will knock down/rebuild the Pizza Hut. There's also a Culver's and a new Macatawa branch. It seems like the comedy den property would be better for office use than retail.

Wasn't the plan originally to clear a whole big chunk of that area (all the way to Pizza Hut maybe?) and put in a mixed use office/retail development?

It's nice to see that Cascade Township is remaining consistent in their efforts to avoid consistency in development in that area. Nothing more attractive than a disjointed assortment of strip malls, offices, and restaurants with no commonality to their design... if your goal is increased traffic congestion, multiple driveways, left turns, no walkability and a general lack of aesthetic appeal.

I believe Cascade's plan is to eventually have a sidewalk going along 28th St. It's included in the approved site plan for the Pizza Hut/Macatawa/Culver's development.

The site plan also calls for an access drive connecting the two developments that will be located just behind Pizza Hut's lot.
