  • I was looking through some recent township board agendas for DeWitt Township since they are about to transfer 34 acres to the city for the expansion of Emergent BioSolutions, and found this rather large project planned in the township. Planned to be…
  • It's supposed to be Magic, I'm pretty sure. But, yeah, until you get close on it, it seems like a piece of art that's probably going to be misread.
  • I was just trying to remember what this lot looked like. It wasn't THAT long ago, but I never took any pictures, except when the first steel went up. There was never really any reason to take pictures of the parking lot. lol https://twitter.com/G…
  • Noticed this driving by this evening. I can't remember if they already have a tenant or not, though I can't imagine GG putting money into if they didn't. https://twitter.com/GillespieGrp/status/1405532097427558404

  • Had to go look something up about McLaren and they mentioned the garage last month: Construction of a four-level parking deck at the new hospital is scheduled to be completed this fall. The structure will include 654 parking spots, as well a…
  • That makes total sense. I'd not thought of the fact that Lansing hadn't totally bee built-out, yet. BTW, looks like the planning board's other item included some fairly major revisions proposed by the Planning Office to the newly enacted Form Bas…
  • At the Planning Board this month it appears they discussed acquisition of around 66 acres of land adjacent to Fine Park in southwest Lansing on the Grand River from Lansing Public Schools. For reference, the existing park is about 36 acres. Apparent…
  • The minutes for last month's planning board meeting are out. The project manager for Sparrow's surgery center was asked by the board about pedestrian movement between Jerome and Michigan, and the project manager confirmed that they will have a walkw…
  • Looks like the Eydes have demolished all of the homes along the 900 west block of Allegan across from the Hall of Justice. This leaves one sole rental house that has not sold on this side of the block. The possibilities for this entire block …
  • Well, it looks like the vacation of the block of Eigth Street between Jerome and Michigan is moving along pretty quickly. This goes to the Development and Planning Committee (D&P) this coming Tuesday. The Planning Board only placed three conditi…
  • County had more view on their website: Front: Birdseye:
  • State workers will be coming back downtown (and to wherever else they work in-office) on July 12. I know the commercial businesses downtown will be happy.
  • Yeah, kind of curious how they are going to fund its operation. But it's better than it being empty. I'm glad how well they've kept up the property over the years. Not a lot of heavy renovation will be needed.
  • Yeah, I was always yelling about the township, too. lol At least we know who to contact, now, about problems and upgrade ideas. I'd definitely push the idea of a traffic light at Clippert and GR.
  • BTW, Andy was mayor back when we did the little trick to get the 11 acres at Jolly and Waverly in Nov 2018. So they certainly know how to do it. Maybe this just needs to be brought to their attention. Still, he's sort of a timid guy and might be afr…
  • And I may have even described how relatively easy this could be. You have to look no further than the small annexation at the northwest corner of Jolly and Waverly a few years ago. Since I'm sure the business owners would be opposed, you just find a…
  • Yes, it appears the rezoning was approved on December 2, 2019 and that's the last we heard of it.
  • It'd also prevent crashes at GR and Homer. But, alas, you'd have heard about traffic studies and plans if they'd planned for something like this, and I've never heard of any such project for this area. I'm actually still not entirely sure of the jur…
  • Yeah, the part between Sag and GR in particular was practically a moonscape. It was embarrassing.
