  • You raise a good point. Just what is it that makes people think to have students included as potential tenants, is such a bad thing? It's true that Lansing should have a "college town" on the east side. I have heard that several years ago when Coole…
  • From the start, this had been one of those "I can't believe they are building it projects". It is going to be a very nice place to live with all the green space and it sits kind of on an axis of several different neighborhoods so it will be convenie…
  • A foundation pouring update from Lenawee Street! The new one I saw this week is for the front of the building and is kind of complex, i.e. not a straight line, it looks interesting. I have hope that this development will have a nice "downtown" feeli…
  • I like that plan. It is much better than the huge cement structure they built for the Skyvue which you can see for miles from every nearly every direction. Seeing the cars parked in that one is about the only way one can tell there are people rentin…
  • So many great construction jobs with all of this development going on. It is going to take some time to get used to these massive buildings. I have enjoyed watching them go up. I was wondering where is the parking for The Hub? I can not see where it…
  • This is good news. The city responded [I wrote to the Mayor directly] to my request to repaint the lane markings for the new 3 lane configuration alining the old with the new pavement by Pattengill. Even though they are going to repave this area soo…
  • Here in REOtown the former Speed Wagon store on S Washington and W Barnes Ave looks like it is being renovated. They should tear it down and start over. This with the clean up going on across the street are really good signs of interest in this neig…
  • I am looking forward to going to the Meijers here. I am over going to Krogers on Holmes and S. Washington. Just yesterday I was advised by the cashier to duck for cover in fear of guns coming out during a fight between to women. I don't know what it…
  • I was by Pleasent Grove and Holmes Rd and noticed the small supermarket there had renovated the exterior of the building. Looks good. I also noticed the new duplexes going up. Pretty much run of the mill in design but it is really great to see the n…
  • What I read/heard about the old buildings is that they are actively marketing them even though the new hospital is three years down the line. It could be happy talk but the report said they have had an interest in them for use as laboratory faciliti…
  • I just watched a brief WILX report, looks like it was just people telling the council why they support the project or not. My thought was haven't we already been through these issues? The report did not enclude much about the changes that were causi…
  • I was hoping to hear about the meeting as well.
  • It is interesting to see how the dollar bills keep flowing around this project changing the plan even as it is being built. What was a good idea, the retail, now has changed and a courtyard is a better idea? I have seen a few hotel-courtyards that w…
  • I thought one point they made about how the use of local stone and bricks that give a building local references are being replaced by mass-produced metal and plastic panels made in Eastern Europe and used all over the world. I understand spreadsheet…
  • It was a coincidence that I took a good look at some of the buildings going up around town when I read in the City Pulse that they had done the same. They critique some of the recent architectural trends reflected here, from good The Stadium Apartme…
  • I have noticed the billboards around town about this project, and they still have this dark colored building depicted. I am hoping for some better drawings of this project when he makes the big announcement! This will be another corner of Larch/Ceda…
  • I was also by this project and noticed the wood framing. This seems to be the preferred method, the thing that I think of is privacy. One house I owned was a duplex townhouse that was wood-framed and shared one wall with the neighbors. I saw it bein…
  • We have reason to be a little concerned when progress seems to stall here in Lansing, they talk about some projects so long it's almost miraculous to see them get underway.
  • I think the Scott Woods sewer project was handled in a much better way, then say the substation in the garden or the cutting of the Red Cedar trees by the last administration. While tree lovers could not convince the Mayor to reroute the drain he re…
  • I am not sure if the project has a page, I can't remember the name[The Metro?:} so I'll say at the old "Y" site there is rebar in place and cement being poured for foundations. Soon the buildings will be growing out of all that dirt they have been m…
