  • This looks beautiful! It is nicer than I was expecting, with a lot of interesting features and displays to look at, I was thinking that it would be more like a lobby hall, I look forward to seeing it in person.
  • That is great news! That thing looks like an abandoned airport loading ramp from the '80s. I hope they have some cool plans for the replacement.
  • At The Temple building they have begun installing windows and replaced the cornice [the right word?] around the top with vintage style moldings. That looks good, the windows are kind of basic, and there is a cement structure behind on Cedar St. that…
  • That is interesting news, now I will another option for lunch, there are so many in downtown EL which is fun. Another chicken wings place is opening on Grand River called Detroit Wings. It looks like we will have the chicken wings market covered. Ou…
  • I noticed the crews were erecting vertical steel beams today at the credit union site. Perhaps the pre-cast cement phase is over. The brick pattern exterior is at least a bit interesting with the bricks having different glazes from shiny to mat fini…
  • The credit union building grows taller each day put together with Legos type slabs that I think [I hope] are at eight stories now. it will be interesting to see how they put the rest of the building together, it sure takes up a lot of sky already.
  • I think the fish ladder could be a really great outdoor amphitheater, the bowl shape is already there just ad seats. The generator building could be the stage production/back-stage area. Another idea would be some sort of fountain or water feature w…
  • There are a couple of interesting articles in the City Pulse this week, one about the City Hall which basically retells the story of the history of city halls that Lansing has built. They hinted at a new or remodeled building and that some developer…
  • I often see city parks workers at Fances Park keeping the park quite nice, and I am sure they spend perhaps more than on less formal parks, I remember reading about both a garden club and an endowment by a neighbor lady who passed away of some good …
  • The city recently installed two baseball diamonds on the green in Quentin Park that was used for many different activities, they are nice fields, but I have not seen much ball being played there, and the cyclone fencing is not really attractive to l…
  • The parks I visit in Lansing are generally well kept, mostly the grass is mowed regularly, and litter removed. Of course, I have to say that back in the '60s when I grew up near Quentin and Frances Parks there were rock gardens with parental plantin…
  • Oh, Ok I just brought it up here in reference to the artist cyclone fence that was pictured here also in East Lansing.
  • I would say that there are a lot of features we have here in Lansing that will guarantee continued progress. I do wish for a more thoughtful approach to public and private projects. Andy just does not seem to have a great imagination about these thi…
  • Yes, the fence is along the Red Cedar's high north and west banks, it is the tall portable cyclone fencing like they put around the Capitol during the right-wing protests. I would assume that the University will put up something like the black metal…
  • I just saw this today, it's pretty cool for a cyclone fence! I hope MSU is planning on doing something better than the cyclone fencing they have put up next to the Red Cedar along Michigan, Beal and behind the Kellogg Center. I know it was put up a…
  • Thanks, I guess it was the first time I noticed the sign, and now I remember hearing about it. I thought I was reporting something exciting and new!
  • I went to the Peanut Shop today and noticed they have begun to plant some good-sized trees behind the Capitol Building. I hope there will be a lot more. I also noticed a SOLD sign on the Masonic Temple building on Capitol Ave! I had not heard about…
  • I think if they went all in on the deco-streamline design [ the Knapp's building] like the marque some of entrances pictured it would be better than just references to the style. I do not like the several different pieces of the early "2K" design el…
  • I was surprised while going out of my morning walk to see almost two stories of cement floors and walls erected at the credit union building that were not there yesterday! Some of the walls have a dark brick patten. I wonder how much of the building…
  • There is some more and better information on the new arts center in this week's City Pulse, with details like floor plans. It is going to include "artist housing" as part of the plan to bring more people downtown to live. I think that is cool, the p…
