  • Unfortunately I think tunneling beneath the concrete park will cause foundational issues. If they have to route a stream south, I'd like to see them use the easement between the park and Frandor Plus.
  • There are rumors that the Montgomery Drain work will require tearing up Ranney Skate Park to move the water from the northern part of Ranney Park towards the Red Cedar River. We can't stand to lose one of the best regional and specialty parks for…
  • Thanks for letting me know. It is working for me when I'm logged in to the site. However if I'm logged out I get the following error: "Not Found - The requested URL /discussions//search was not found on this server." I tested by doing two searche…
  • I just completed an update to the forum software. Please let me know if you have any issues. Thanks, Jared weinjared - at - gmail
  • Yeah I do agree that it's an improvement. It also doesn't prevent the other uses that I would like to see.
  • I don't like it. I agree, it feels like they're building the outdoor seating for someone else's restaurant. We should have bathrooms and drinking fountains. Park benches or tables and chairs are good too though, but the outdoor fireplace is a gimmic…
  • BJ's Wholesale Club is opening two locations in southeast Michigan. I wonder if they might be purchasing the old Sam's Club location as their next Michigan expansion?
  • The Temple Club and the old Sam's Club on the south side are under contract to be sold (different buyers most likely). This is great news for both properties. I think it would be easy to convert the old Temple Club to apartments. I'm not sure w…
  • @MichMatters East Lansing has a specific ordinance that was passed after the St. Anne Lofts fiasco that requires that what is built matches the approved plans. https://eastlansing.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=2&clip_id=269&meta_id=…
  • This is so great to hear! Wow this is really the game changer that downtown Lansing needs. It's one of those sleeper game changers that will really help change some of the environment and have a lasting impact that will help the street and pedestria…
  • Nothing announced just yet, but it looks like a third developer will now be trying to build something at the "four corners" in Okemos's downtown. https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/local/2019/01/17/downtown-development-okemos-tif-blig…
  • It would be awesome to see that Gillespie proposal built on the parking lot to the north of Oliver Towers.
  • https://eastlansinginfo.org/content/corner-project-now-hold-plans-dont-match-approval The Park District development is now on hold after the city inspectors noticed that the building plans submitted in early December don't match the plans that th…
  • The staircase from Evergreen up to Abbot that is there today connects to this west parking lot. Its a small lot and looks like it's part of the ATT building. I don't recall seeing a staircase to replace the one they're removing. I do really lik…

  • Yes, I like this proposal a lot. But it does seem that the developers of this proposal know that the city is in a bind and are thus asking for the whole house. In the proposal, they are using the City Hall West parking lot as an entrance to their pa…

  • Thanks, that was the _one_ part of the block I didn't look at lol. I do remember that house. I'm fine with the visitor center where it is, being near the Broad museum. Could we convert that old house to an East Lansing Historical Museum? Now that wo…

  • @ratchetwrench where is the Victorian house you're referring to? I couldn't find it when looking on Google Street view

  • The delta got some good infill in 2010 and 2013 but hasn't had much attention since then. My guess is that the property owners are just complacent. Hopefully the new buildings under construction will increase competition and the we'll see the delta …

  • Well this thread was started in 2006 so at least that last long lol. I believe the first public talks about it were in the fall of 2005.
