  • Michigan chain, it appears. https://twitter.com/GillespieGrp/status/1318670450390683649
  • Here it is: https://twitter.com/GlanbiaPlc/status/1318851569023094784
  • To be clear, we found out in June when they formally proposed it that it'd be 7 stories. Before then it was "5-8" stories. From my post on June 30: Looks like the MSUFCU has formally submitted plans to the city for this building. It will be 7-st…
  • This came up in late-August, here, but I got a copy of this month's 517 Business and Life magazine, a local business and lifestyle publication, and it again mentions the "tallest building in Lansing" plan. This article had a bit more detail than the…
  • So, I'll move the discussion about the Eastern High School site over here since it's a Sparrow property. Heard from a little birdie that the school building is going to be preserved...
  • First review of Capital City Market? Most of the store is pretty visually stunning, some artwork and lots of personal touches on the signage and such. The shelve aisles are a little plain and look temporary, though they are permanent. The prices? Ch…
  • You can always got to apartments.com to see what's available. Block600 is showing 2 available units, Capitol View is showing 4 available units with another 6 being finished in another month. Looks like at least half of Metro Place is still vacant. O…
  • Bing maps is even better for this. On Google, after you zoom in to a certain degree, the city boundaries disappear. Bing maps also appear to have more recently updated city boundaries. Google maps, for instances, leaves off the land-sharing agreemen…
  • Ooo, nice. Though, I think it could be even nicer if they'd simply connect it via skywalk to the parking garage across the street to reduce the level of surface parking included.
  • Noticed a few days ago that three of the four double-height windows on the west side of the Boji Tower damaged during the unrest a few months back have been repaired. Only the southern most window is still boarded up at its bottom.
  • Finally got around to downloading some drain maps from the county drain commissioner office website to show where the Montgomery drain is under Frandor. It gives you an idea of exactly where it is. The dots show points of entry for the water. As you…
  • The island between Clippert and were Grand River and Saginaw meets is the City of Lansing. West of Clippert is the township to Merrill Street. The only island of East Lansing in this area that intrudes west of Coolidge is the little triangle where t…
  • So sorry to hear about your brother gb, and a younger brother at that. Sending you good thoughts. My condolences.
  • Nice dective work. I notice it'd been repaved the other day; a godsend. But, yeah, the eastbound really needs it, too, particularly the block between Homer and the first Frandor driveway, and specifically the southern lanes. When I'm coming down Sag…
  • Couldn't really tell from this rendering, but while driving by this evening they've put up a nice long metal awning over the ground floor of the hotel section, which would help pedestrians out of the elements. Also, the vertical lighting you can see…
  • They corrected it. They are simply asking for a rezoning for future hospital expansion on the site. The only residential district in which a hospital is allowed by special condition is DM-4, and the site is currently zoned C Residential for duplexes…
  • I wrote the city to see if they can correct the planning office's staff report. I should know by tomorrow, in which case we'll know the plans for the property.
  • Hospitals can be built in this zoning district. I imagine it'll be a mix of housing and healthcare. BTW, 220 N. Penn was in fact supposed to be on the agenda. What happened is that they posted the staff report for the E. Miller & Orchard Crt.…
  • Somethings from next week's planning board meeting: * A developer wants to develop a 10 apartments on a half-acre parcel immediately west of North Cemetery on E Miller Road. This is immediately north of the Meijer down on Cedar. They are requestin…
