  • I wonder if the plans include a swimming pool. It seems really strange to me that MSU is building these multi-million-dollar buildings but cannot afford to have a swim and dive team.
  • There is renewed activity in the Ranny Park/drain project. Several large earth movers were on-site. I wonder how long it will be before this project is finished.
  • The old houses have been leveled. The blocks north on Pennsylvania Avenue could use some help too.
  • I noticed those houses boarded up too, they were in pretty sad shape, it would be noisy corner for a single-family home rehab. Too bad they did not buy the "apartment house" at 909. It looks beyond rehabilitation as well. On the south side of Cedar,…
  • It is great that this area is being turned into a residential neighborhood. The design is so standard these days, why I don't know! I think the small blocks of retail buildings on Shiawassee could turn into an urban village center. As has been point…
  • Thanks for the information, I have not been out that way in a while, so it was new to me. There were doing some major landscaping on the Mt. Hope side any way. Perhaps that ridge of hills was there before but I could hardly see the warehouse buildin…
  • I went out to Grand Ledge to give my X-mas tree to the goats out there, while driving down W Mt Hope Hwy there was a large landscaping project underway across from the Meijer's warehouse, with huge new buildings behind the hills. Is that the GM batt…
  • Today's LSJ.com has an artical about the new improvements being made to the "City Market" building, now called 'Lansing Shuffle" I believe. It sounds better than I was expecting. It also sounds like a real business plan with several restaurants each…
  • There is one those 'developments to watch" articles about East Lansing in the LSJ today.
  • Yes, you are right I did miss that one but perhaps with the new entertainment center opening next door it will have a tenant soon.
  • While shopping downtown yesterday I noticed the entertainment venue on S. Washington has its front facade enclosed with nice-looking walls of glass windows and doors. They have also renovated the part of the exterior facade on the second floor. Now…
  • There is an artical in LSJ.com [pay] about redeveloping S. Martin Luther King Blvd., a long-range plan to make the area more attractive, and safer.
  • I agree that I really don't like the idea of seeing yellow block "m's" all over Lansing, and that MSU really should be looking to its second host city for expansion. I think MSU could take over Cooley Law School and bring Sparty's law students right…
  • That is kind of what I was trying to convey, a separate lane for local traffic on the right, and two north bound lanes for thru-traffic which could have a stop sign for off ramp traffic. That traffic would not cross into the local lane but turn righ…
  • I saw in the LSJ that the building with the house -like pitched roof and windows is going to be a restaurant called "The Old Bag of Nails"! Interesting choice for a restaurant, it seems that the first restaurant these folks opened was in an old hard…
  • The street and bridge up there have been repaved after years of huge potholes and looks much better than this photo! I think taking over a vacant industrial site along the river and building housing is just what the city needs. There are many vacant…
  • I thought the drawings for the building were quite nice, and perhaps it will lead to some more riverside development on the north side.
  • I just had an idea there could be a local traffic lane which one could enter at Michigan and the other intersections on the right, this lane would be separated from the thru lanes on the left. This could keep slower local traffic separated from the …
  • There is list a by LSJ [pay] of the worse intersections in Greater Lansing, N. Homer and E. Saginaw being number one with 85 crashes last year! It is crazy around there; I often avoid driving that way. A fellow from the township just kind of threw …
  • It is good to see the space filled in, the building is looking OK too. I am not sure I would want to have my apt. right next to the intersection there. I noticed wood framing stacked up on the river side of the development, which would be a much bet…
