This project goes before the BRA for Brownfield Plan approval at their Oct 5th meeting.  That probably explains the drilling/soil sampling. 

It's fascinating that the environmental assessment talks about the "large passenger and freight rail yard" that used to encompass this area from around 1898 until at least 1953".  We all knew the Grand Rapids Union Station was there but you don't really think about it now, just a sea of parking lots.

Tower portion is phase two, correct? 

Yes, at some indetermined date in the future. I believe that the office building at the Northwest corner is part of phase 1 as well, but doesn't sound like Pioneer is involved? I didn't ask specifically.
