  • I like the look of the office building, and I'm happy to see it's two floors instead of one. I'm also glad to hear the apartment buildings will be faced in brick and stone; that is always a question when these are announced. I suspect, too, that t…
  • Here's the link to remember to include: https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/entertainment/2019/06/11/lansing-city-futsal-delta-township-arena/1333023001/ It's weird, because I'm pretty sure I know where this is - I used to go to play laser …
  • Check out this concept in the 60's to add additional working space for the Capitol. https://twitter.com/MIStateCapitol/status/1136955974307106817 In the end, they ended up putting that space (and more) into the Capitol Complex. It's also fu…
  • There appears to be a large pile driver near the corner of Larch and Michigan. At least I think that's what it is. If it is, that means we'll see construction started this week. Maybe it started today.
  • So, this is what was going on up at the North Lansing Dam in Burchard Park, Saturday. https://twitter.com/GillespieGrp/status/1137356185634516993 This looks really cool, and a great use of the park. https://twitter.com/LansingMIFacts/stat…
  • This is sad. This house is quite visible, especially coming north up MLK. I had no idea it was a Darius Moon design. Putnam: Historic Lansing house by Darius Moon faces 'demolition by neglect' LANSING – Another piece of Lansing histor…
  • The developer finally updated their progress on their facebook page:
  • The hotel/dispensary/retail building at Merritt Road and Park Lake Road across from Costco comes back before the planning commission next week. They've updated the packet, a bit. Site plan: https://eastlansing.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view…
  • So, the council is going to take up the rezoning of the old Kmart on South Cedar, Monday. It's likely to pass, but what caught my attention in the council packet is a letter by Gentilozzi Real Estate which mentions a building down that way I had no…
  • The special use and site plan application for 947 Trowbridge is going before the planning commission at their June 26 meeting. This is the one for the reconstruction of the old Quality Dairy at the site into a two-unit commercial building, one unit…
  • Or - and here me out - they are making a lot of money. Months-long appeals and then taking it all the way up the the supreme court ain't cheap. Most business would have stopped after the district court ruling. Their menu is overpriced for what it…
  • The article specifically says they are paying rent during all of this. lol
  • Waterfront Bar & Grill in the City Market has decided to take their case their case up to the Michigan Supreme Court, which gives them about another month and a half in the building, at least: https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/20…
  • The council postponed a decision on the moratorium, but it sounds like all-but approved judging by the mayor's comments: https://us17.campaign-archive.com/?u=d99498ce3806962a5ede26662&id=f72528b268
  • So, they broke ground on the new gas-fired power plant that will replace the coal-fired Erickson and Eckert plants. And we're finally given it's name: Delta Energy Park. https://twitter.com/BWLComm/status/1135638405034008576
  • Well, the local media picked up on the proposed moratorium on downtown construction: https://www.wlns.com/news/city-council-to-consider-development-development-in-the-downtown-district/2049891020 Looks like the DDA was blindsided. This is def…
  • I can not believe how irked I am by the city still not saying anything about this. lol Look, given the times we're currently living in, I'm kind of hyper-sensitive to this stuff. I can not believe there has been nothing on the news, or nothing fro…
  • They were very popular. In fact, it was solely because of construction up that way that Clinton County was Michigan's fastest-growing county from 2000 to 2010. Over that same span of time, Bath Township grew by 54%. BTW, nobody walked to class fr…
  • LSJ has an article this morning concerning the Holmes Street School I posted about back on May 17. It details the failed redevelopment and the rough future plans for it: Verlinde Construction, Jo-Buck Electric and Capital Steel and Builders S…
  • Yeah, many of us said it was stupid for them to be sprawling up into cornfields when it happened. Many of us saw what would happen; it was incredibly short-sighted. I guess the silver lining is that they are so cheaply built, that it won't be an…
