Do we know if the theater will have eye popping signage or does the billboard law (mentioned earlier) also effect the front of the theater?

For instance, a version of this:

I sure hope so, newer developments seem to be lacking in the signage around here, ie 20 Monroe. I’ve noticed many new movie theaters in CAli have really cool retro signage.

I noticed at least 2 small “Studio Park” signs on the parking garage today, but didn’t get a chance to take a picture.

There's one on the north side of the parking garage that stares you down as you head south on the S curve.

Have they finished the Ottawa Avenue extension?

It's all paved and the street amenities are in place, but it isn't open to traffic yet. They're still using it as a staging area for the construction.

Walking along Oaks this weekend, I noticed two things. One, the ramp, set back, looks hideous and boring. I felt like I was at some lousy suburban office park. Good news is I know it's only temporary  because the office portion will go up soon.

 

Secondly, the apartments look great, but I feel like awning covering parts of the sidewalk would make that street even more organic. As it is, its just a brick and glass wall with little variation.

 

Outside that, I love what this project is doing to that neighborhood

The plaza is finished and landscaped now. I saw a picture of "staff training" for Celebration Cineman on social media the other day.

This may just be part of the plan to finish studio park, but the lot where the office building is going up is now completely cleared. 

also, the lawn looks great. Can’t wait for it to open.

I thought the lawn might be field turf, like they have in front of the Orlando Eye

It is turf. It reminds me of a little gathering area in Vail, Colorado. It'll be interesting to see if they do any events there (like Futsal)?

The Michigan Strategic Fund board today awarded Acrisure a Good Jobs for Michigan tax capture plan valued at $6 million, the first such award in the Grand Rapids area under the program. As well, the board approved a $1 million performance-based grant under the Michigan Business Development Program for the Acrisure project, in which the company plans to invest up to $33 million to move its global headquarters to the new downtown Studio Park development.

Does look similar to what is shown here. I actually like that they got rid of the large light colored portions (white brick?).

Looks like it's a floor taller, 7 instead of 6?
