A new mixed use development is being proposed for the corner of Coit and Hastings. 3 stories, 5200 sf of retail, 11 - 12 residential units upstairs.

I frequently run over the connecting bridge.

It has a surprising amount of pedestrian traffic during the day.

(Mostly GRCC and GVSU nursing students.)

An unusual but convenient location to serve the medical mile.

A nice project for this neighborhood.

Too tall! Too dense! It'll encourage college riff-raff into the neighborhood, and our children play in that alley! Oh wait, this isn't in the SWAN neighborhood.

I like it. It looks like a natural development which is perfect for the neighborhood. Rendering looks great, too.

Hey now, those words have been used in Belknap before too. But I would think this one will work out, since it's right in the spot the neighborhood wants to redevelop.

I also like the look of it... I like that it fits in with the other houses. That, too, by the way, should also make the neighborhood happy.

Anyone have floor plans available for this project?

No floorplans. They're reviewing it at Thursday's Planning Commission meeting.

I like it too. I think it fits in well with the rest of the area, and I'd like to see some more density. I just wish they would have rebuilt coit as a park/bridge like had been suggested.

Here's the link to the adopted Area Specific Plan that Nederveld & Lott3Metz helped the neighborhood craft. This project falls in an area defined as 'Cottage Retail'.

I like the plan, it adds some density and I also like it includes some retail space. I would have liked to see it wrap around to Hastings too, but I guess there wouldn't be enough on-site parking if they extended the building.

Looks fitting of 'cottage retail' I suppose. I think it really helps tie into the development and activity across the highway without dominating the neighborhood. It has two thumbs up from me.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS!! It is because of concepts like this that I had long ago proposed putting an I-696-style "Park Deck" over I-196 from Coit to the western face of MSU Medical School (to create a greenspace connector between the northern edge of the RDV/Christman development and the southern edge of Belknap Lookout). The high-end medical students/staff/researchers of the Medical District could galvanize the whole Belknap Lookout to morph into a dense and highly attractive micro Brooklyn-type area. KUDOS!

One little nitpick: what's with the little strip between the actual sidewalk, and the covered sidewalk in this project? Guess I can't say I'm too big on the faux-house look.

My nitpick is with the bicycle riding on the sidewalk. :)
