Just a side note! The new maintenance man at my building had been working at the Skyvue building and told me he quite there because the workload was just too much as the building has many defects, and now that people actually live there they have to fix several problems a day. I have sort gotten used to the building but I always thought it looked kind of cheap and the only flair of it's design is up on the top floor where no one can see it. Let's do better with the Red Cedar project!
It's marketed toward students, so it's not a surprise it was built cheaply. Red Cedar includes a mix of housing: market-rate, senior housing and some student housing.
This is in response to the Arcadia posts a few pages back...I couldn't figure out a way to quote the text. Sabatoa - you said the East Side is really attracting residents. I lived on the east side for over a decade and it seemed like we always heard, in not so clear terms, that the gentrification of the east side was just around the corner. Honestly, as a homeowner, I got seriously sick of waiting, and moved to the PNW. Do you think the east side is REALLY at a tipping point, or is it just a bunch of young people who want cheap housing because they're MSU students, as well as urban holdouts who send their kids to catholic school?
You seem to be judging just what kind of people you think are important from your tone. It's a little bit of everyone quite frankly; I don't know if you're just looking for some bohemian yuppy enclave or something more diverse in every sense of the word. It's certainly not the former.
But in any case there has visibly more development on the Avenue (Arcadia, The Venue, Provident Place (u/c), Avenue Flats, etc.).
Bless your heart. Not sad to have seen you go, then. You want to talk about fake progressives? Look around your preciously fake Pacific Northwest with its racism - president and historic; like, I know you know Oregon's history, for instance - papered over by mockable fake "progressivism." You don't have to post here if it's going to be under false pretenses as if you care about the place. You don't. Talking about racism and then dismissing every black person on the eastside as "poor blacks." Get out of here.
The negative comments don't help Lansing. The Lansing area knows pretty well its challenges, and we don't take each opportunity of progress for granted.
@subterranean This forum isn't here for brash generalizations about populations. Please take the incendiary comments some place else.
