  • Thank you for posting this, it is always good to have my memory confirmed by the State Journal. When I was a kid I only saw black squirrels at MSU when we would go out to feed the ducks, and in Albion where my Grand Father lived. There were no black…
  • The outside finish work continues, they are finishing the first floor stone facade and are starting on the upper floors which are being clad in a wood-like siding that looks a little cheap compared with the stone siding used on the first floor. It's…
  • Starting yesterday workers were pulling up the just recently laid sidewalk at the corner of S. Washington and MalcomeX in front of the wall! I wonder why they are doing that? Also, one of the 3 skinny little trees they planted on S. Washington has …
  • I was by the "The Wing" building again today and there is definitely demolition work going on inside. The overhead doors were open and there were several dumpsters filled with debris inside.
  • I'm not super impressed with the design of The Graduate Hotel, but it does look better than the painted stucco siding they have been using for the new outer ring hotels and it is going to be done with light-colored materials so it's going to light u…
  • There a new depiction of the "600 Block" project a few pages after this one, on the development firm's web site. I like the entry gate next to the tracks. It looks like a billboard has been drawn on the side of the hotel, I am hoping that is just fo…
  • Parks in the parking lots maybe this a new tread! I like that idea. The park in the parking lot, they are building at the nearby storage facility is looking good with the grass starting to grow, they planted quite a few larger trees which looks nice…
  • The only change I have noticed on this corner is they recently put "Jersey barriers" in front of the drive off S. Washington to prevent parking. The fireworks and Silver Bells are about the only times I see this lot used for parking, perhaps they wa…
  • Thanks, I had not noticed the number of apartments, which sounds like a lot considering how many windows there are and the building is almost a square. Maybe workers of the force will only need one window!
  • I guess this is in REOtown! There has been some activity at the warehouse building/The Wing on Hazel Street. For a couple of days now I have seen people in hard hats going into the building, with a lot of cars parked alongside the building. I could …
  • There are two construtions sites on this street! They are both just a bit further a long then the photo above. I was by here yesterday just to take a look.
  • Yea! So good to see this event! I was thinking as well, the reporter misspoke when he said the want to finnish in one year I'm sure it will take at least 24 months. It would be good if they repaved all of E. Kalamazoo to make it a good alternative r…
  • This is interesting, I had not considered that they would have to move the signals and street lights. It is cool to be around to see this change back to two-way streets. I can not remember when they were two-way in the old days so the streets have h…
  • I would think that the apartments could be very large in this building due to its shape creating a large interior space. It is very good news that this building is being renovated, and I am hoping it looks better than the depiction.
  • I heard today on the 1180-AM radio local news that there will be an official groundbreaking ceremony today at the site! The report also mentioned that the developers were hoping to have it built, in one year. I was surprised to hear that, and that c…
  • The first depictions of this project were much better than this current one. I guess these are just to give an idea of a building in that spot because the drawings now show a very unattractive apartment block. I can understand why these revisions th…
  • I was by this site Sunday and was happy to see that the site preparation work has begun! That is so great to see, for years I have been looking at this site trying to imagine buildings filling up that space. Kind of funny to be excited about seeing …
  • I was by this building and saw workers covering all the lobby windows with ads depicting the high-end office space they are building. One of the ads was of the front entrance, with a nice looking sign that says "The Louie". This sounds kind of stran…
  • That is good news, this building is really beautiful and has a very prominent address which should be full and active. Thanks for the information. Has there been a date set for a beginning work first shovel ceremony at the Red Cedar site? It will …
  • I have noticed there a sidewalk protection scaffold put up around the "Bank of Lansing" building at N. Washington and Michigan Ave again. Is there a renovation going on there? The storefront renovation next door looks nice, I would guess that a law …
