I saw a similar forum over on UP's Grand Rapids section, it seems like a good idea to get some dialogue going. Basically it's just speculating as to what you think will happen as far as development this year.
Whats (supposed) to happen in '08:
Stadium District is completed
Ground broke for MSP HQ
Ground broke on Kalamazoo Gateway
Ground broke on Capitol Club Tower
Ground broke on Ottawa & Butler
Work begins on Ottawa Power Plant
Ground broke on Market Place and/or Ballpark North
Ground broke on Michigan Museum Place
Ground broke on new Marriott in West Village
Stonehouse Village 3 completed
Ground broke on new MSU art museum???
I am wary of making any predictions whatsoever but I'll try for a few:
There will be another development announced for the Stadium District area, something at least as big as Kzoo Gateway
The "Association Project" will be announced ; )
One or more condo/apartment project will be announced west of the river, at least one will be over 10 floors.
Something significant will be annunced for N Washington Sq.
Concrete plans for a performing arts center will be announced
This is basically just for fun I hope everyone throws out a few ideas, and hopefully I remember to check this thread a year from now to see if I was right.
