  • The construction fencing along Evergreen and behind the church was removed today. They did a nice job on the area, some trees along there would be nice too. I guess the street is open, but may close again when the big projects begin again. I believe…
  • I noticed the other day that they have installed the windows and doors on the ground floor of the "University Edge" buildings on the east side of the development. They look good, seems like there is going to be a lot of retail space[for these days] …
  • Has this renovation taken place, or is it just a rendering? I have not been over that way. There was an interesting article in The City Pulse about the group renovating the "City Market" pole barn. It gave me a little more hope that this will be …
  • Today the construction of the credit union building seems to be beginning, but some of the work may be the sidewalk handicap curb cuts project. At any rate they are pulling up pavement at the corners that seems to have been just recently laid. Take …
  • The pool looks pretty sweet, with some nice green space too. I see a lot of cars parked there, it seems like they are having no problem leasing out this place.
  • I was wondering if there is a rendering of the building project behind the bank building? I could be wrong! about the site, but I believe it is the site of the last building in the Abbott/Graduate project. There seems to be a separate surface parkin…
  • I see you are saying the new south bound lanes of MLK follow the old Birch Street. To be honest I can not remember going down Birch Street on the north side of the river. My Dad was well kind of a "fearful" of passing through that neighborhood himse…
  • OK now I see what the tents were about. It is never "very quiet" here in downtown EL, but I am sure it will be a lot more noise very soon. I am hoping that this building will not block the late afternoon sun we get on our patio. Maybe that three foo…
  • I do remember when it was all residential from the north side of the Logan Street bridge all the way down Olds Ave, but I don't remember any sort of loop or short cut on Birch Street. The blocks were in a grid pattern, so I could be wrong but I thi…
  • The street paving project on Evergreen and Valley Court Park is nearly finished, it looks like there will be more parking for the farmers market days. They have erected a curtained fence around the brick building behind Dublin Sq. including two big …
  • The station was on the northeast corner of S. Logan and Main Street right where the bridge over 496 is, it was one of the first properties they took. I believe there were gas stations on three of the four corners. I remember this church sitting on …
  • I went to the MSU Board Museum a few days ago, they have a very interesting exhibit about about automotive design, and it's influence on art and life. Part of the exhibit included a whole section about the construction and destruction of I-496. Ther…
  • I guess you could say the design reflects some aspects of the Mid-Century design you find in many MSU buildings, like the Library. If you look at it with this in mind the design is more understandable. On the subject of East Lansing development, …
  • It looks like this first floor of a taller building. Not too much saying "2021" there in this design, but not "that bad".
  • The walls for the new hall are up sort of giving an idea of the entrance area. They have removed a lot of soil from the west side of the hill. I hope this is for some nice green space, I understand they are not going to replace the parking lot on th…
  • This does look nice and I am very pleased about the rain gardens and the reduction of pollution, it is a good thing. I wonder if they are planning any pedestrian pathways through the gardens as it seems like they maybe hard to see while driving by. …
  • I am sure that this is for the drain project but it was still kind of shocking to drive down Michigan Ave today and see that they have cut down nearly every tree in the center median across from Frandor! I guess this is were the streams are going t…
  • Where on campus was that? Maybe out in the fields? I took a walk around the central campus and there was hardly a branch down. The Red Cedar was rolling along quite high [I think they could surf at the falls] but not out of the banks yet at least at…
  • I saw the Magic Johnson mosaic portrait behind the front desk and found that the mosaic was made from different colored basketball shoe laces! It is really cool! as is the whole place. Very different lots of wood. check it out the have a 30% off dea…
  • It is Ervin Magic Johnson! Draymond is a good guy but he is not quite worthy of a portrait over the front desk.
