  • I hope they will find at least one new name for these two developments, Park Place and The Park District are too similar and hard to keep straight which development is being discussed. I would think that shadow canyons[you can see the shadow effect …
  • Much of the work on Mt.Hope Barnes and Smith Ave is done. If you want several blocks of driving pleasure the new pavement is really nice. Kind of an unexpected lane change westbound Mt Hope at MLK the right lane is for right turns only as west of th…
  • You have brought up a very good point. My old neighborhood park Quentin had restrooms and a nice brass [beat up by ice skates] drinking fountain. I think many parks in Lansing had restrooms. I could see using the modern park and street restrooms lik…
  • I went to the new liquor store which was very nice but still just a liquor store. I would have liked some other sort of business to move in there but it is certainly better than a closed gas station. It is really great that local groups are steppin…
  • I think the front portion of the building is the new section. The shop seems busy enough and it does not look like they are moving. This building would be a great spot for a mid-size grocery store if Hacks did move.
  • I noticed a for sale sign outside Hack's Key Shop on S.Washington was put up Friday. I thought it was kind of strange since they had just recently moved into and renovated that building. Maybe Hack's does not own the building? The nail salon down t…
  • Maybe panels were the wrong term. The orange cladding that I noticed are long rectangular "board" like shapes. I was thinking they looked like a step up in quality from some of the other buildings with colorful claddings that have been built recentl…
  • I have been in a couple of discussions about the I- 496 project and its effects on the city and the people who lived in the path of the highway on the Lansing Historical Society's Facebook page. It is very interesting to hear the stories of people a…
  • I checked out the Phillips Partnership web site. There are some really nice designs and some really average designs. It looks like those false rooftops features are everywhere, I really dislike those, I just think why? I guess we will get what the d…
  • I have been by that way and the old motel was still standing as of last week. It is interesting to see this easternmost strip of Lansing being developed. I am hoping they plan to improve the roads and access to the area. Also, I hope the MSU will no…
  • Of course, there is some sense to all of these facilities, they would not be building them if not. They do not really add anything to a community, but at least these buildings will have found some use and pay taxes. It is very liberating to get rid …
  • I was by this project the other day a noticed some the outside cladding is going up on some sections in the front. It is dark burnt orange "brick" colored panels that i.m.o. look good. It is a strong and deep color and red tones will look good in th…
  • As most people in Lansing live in single family homes it seems kind of weird that folks have so much stuff they can not fit into their own homes. I guess people just want to keep their stuff forever. When I moved here I got rid of a ton of stuff and…
  • Thanks for the information, I will write to the city. I guess people have a right to do business but we are a zoned community and there are hundreds of zoned industrial sites in Lansing where they could locate this kind of business.
  • LSJ.com is saying this project will start as early as March. Soon there be some much opportunity to "sidewalk supervise" from one new development to the next. For me, that is really a fun thing to do!
  • It is great news to hear. I am hoping to hear the same news about the Red Cedar project soon. There will be a lot of folks working in the building trades.
  • Maybe it is a business, but it is an ugly one. This one and the closed store across the street really bring the rest of those two blocks down They say new REOtown stops here and look it's scary old South Washington again. I guess this is not a uniqu…
  • I was implying the EL city council feels the students are pesky and need be regulated, I do not feel that way. It would be best if they let the market decide who rents and what gets built in EL. Also, as I am trying to do, look at East Lansing as a …
  • It seems to have nothing to do with the sewer project, I could be wrong. It looks more like one of those, driveway sealing operations where they cover the old black top with that smelly new asphalt coating. There are also old trailers and junk. It c…
  • They are finishing up fixing the River Trail near GM. They have installed steel "seawalls" along the river bank where it had failed. Not the most attractive solution to the problem but might help the bank from collapsing again. I can not tell if the…
