MR. HEARTWELL! Tear down this surface lot!

8 posts in this topic

With the possibility of the new hotel at the WAM site, the city needs to take a long hard look at getting rid of this parking lot at 6th Street Park. Hardly ANYONE parks there, and I think it might be because of the confusing parking fee system. Rip it up and make the park bigger! Put in a farmers/fish market! Sand volleyball courts! Anything but a giant unused piece of assphalt! And take that the lot to the North owned by 801 Monroe with it! :)

No matter what time of day, it ALWAYS looks like this. :rolleyes:

Seems like converting this to greenspace would go very well with the city's new Green Master Plan. :whistling:

Perhaps the square lot could be developed into some sort of Riverfront restaurant (relocate Charlie's Crab to make room for your regional mall?) and the curved lot could be a green space/market like you suggested. With a new hotel and the increasing residential population out that way I think it would be a good fit and could possibly spur further re-development in the corridor.

I agree that this lot is worthless with the exception being the few nights with fireworks downtown.

Any thoughts to putting up an off-leash dog park at that corner? The one off of Lyon is very popular and I think another would add a lot to not only the residents in the new developements but also for the rest of us NW-siders...

I believe the lot on the north side of the picture is owned by DeVries...not much chance of them turining it into sand volleyball. Maybe the DDA will buy it for $2MM...

Well, at least its landscaped and well taken care of. That's a pretty rare sight in Michigan.

I wonder if they even make enough revenue on it to maintain it?
