  • I may be wrong about this! but I think there was a line of trees and brush on the north banks of the river when I was a kid living on Park Ave. I don't remember being able to see so much of the trains and lots behind from the south bank. I knew some…
  • I understand why they chose the west side site, just a little humor at Delta's expense! For most folks the whole area called Lansing! I would love to see a new neighborhood built on the Verlinden site, I was thinking it could be mixed use with small…
  • It looks like Lansing is closer to getting the new GM battery plant as funds have been approved for some of the costs to develop the site. I wonder why they did not consider any of the huge pieces of GM owned land already in the city of Lansing, wi…
  • I read about an entertainment venue being developed in the building at 224 S Washington Sq. which the LSJ points out is the site of the original Knapp's Store built in 1915. I have to say I did not know this was the address of the first Knapp's, I w…
  • I took a drive over the rebuilt Aurelius Road bridge the other day, it was so nice to see the new smooth pavement. I found that I was still looking for potholes as I crossed, wow it's about time, I am glad they got to it. Then I went down Forest Roa…
  • It is great to see these projects that have been waiting for years [about 4! I wonder why?] to get funding finally moving forward. My Dad older brothers and sister went to Walter French, I am so happy to this renovation honor the original design of …
  • One of the Red Cedar buildings almost finished is the senior building on the southwest side which was built with steel bricks and cement, and I think that it looks of a higher quality in design. The hotels so far, steel and cement are being used, it…
  • This looks pretty good. Investment in this neighborhood will help. I would like to see some sort of public safety/police office in this development.
  • That is a great view! I hope we hear about the block being filled with the development of the Washington Ave side. The project in this area between Cedar and Larch is one place I would have thought would never be developed into housing, but there mu…
  • Lansing's airport is going to receive a large grant from the infrastructure funds recently made available. I hope they spend some of that money on the terminal building, it seems dark and old fashion in that building with the low ceilings and window…
  • A new awning has been put up on the College Manor building [Begger's] it looks nice but water drips off right down the middle of the sidewalk. There was an article about EL developments in LSJ yesterday. I did not know they are planning another offi…
  • It is good to see the development happening, I like the parking is behind the buildings. I hope they plan an urban style design for the facades, like the rowhouse style down the street on Grand Ave and St. Joe.
  • There also landscaping being installed along the Clippert Street side, along with the sidewalk's stairs and ramps on Michigan Ave. It is interesting that the Senior Building looks quite different than the other apartment buildings. Are they going to…
  • The work on the credit union building has picked up as the first cement and rebar are going down today, also they have closed the north side of Evergreen next to the site. The new crossing signals beep but do not talk [I hope] and we cannot hear it …
  • I believe the folks who bought the REOtown old service station a year or two are the same folks who own the Traverse City attraction.
  • I read an article on LJS.com about the project west of I-96, they seem to be giving a total green light to the whole project. I guess that is good, but the retail already there and the new big box stores are going to be stores that are already here,…
  • Crews are putting up the signal poles for the Abbott and Albert interchange today. They are going to be the pole-style with a pole over the street holding the signal lights. They look good, really huge but better than the old poles and cables. It wi…
  • The LSJ.com has an article about a new independent book shop with a cafe and wine bar opening in the development. Sounds like it will be a nice place, they seem to have some good ideas. This is the first retail space in the development that I have h…
  • I just saw this report. I had not heard of that version of baseball, but it seems to be a good idea especially with a famous player like John Smoltz involved it should be a first-class facility. It is great that this will be free.
  • This is very nice to see. I noticed the new street lamps along the sidewalks are matching the street lamps on the front eastern side, they look really great, next I'm looking forward to seeing the trees planted. There are two large stairways leading…
