  • Very exciting news! I'm thinking if this is a big success[I think it will be] they will be building on that large parking area soon. I am looking forward to riding my bike over there on the River Trail.
  • The facade work here is looking good. I noticed they are installing stone [like?] siding on the lower level. I like the more residential look of this building which improves the street in this more residential neighborhood.
  • I think it may be a good thing to limit height in that area, there is enough space elsewhere to build higher buildings, the Sawyer's lot on E Michigan comes to mind . This plan would have created a dark street of shadow canyons, and a lot more vehic…
  • I think the Temple Building could be a great hotel and conference center, maybe building a residential tower/parking structure connected on the surface lot next door. Over on Cheery Hill the computer depictions of this project are not very good. I …
  • I was reading the real paper LSJ[so small!] at the library which had another mention of the two new hotels signing on to this project. I thought the sale of the land had already been done but I guess not. Let's do it already! They are big teases for…
  • I am posting here to mention several different things I noticed traveling around Lansing yesterday. I took East Mt. Hope out to the post office and it was so beautiful! I had not been that way in a long time due to the condition of the road so it wa…
  • These drawings have a big city feel to them. It seems a bit large but I guess there is a market for this kind of building, as witnessed in the other high rise buildings that are 98% rented. Is this going to bring more people to EL or just concentrat…
  • Cool picture! What a nice day! This project is going to fill up the skyline here. Have they had anything to say about what they plan to do with Clara's? The longer it sits there empty people are just going to forget about it. It could be a lot of …
  • I saw the high back wall, it totally blocks the view of the auto service shop. This building will stand out as it will be on a slightly higher ground than the 500 block plus the higher story for the Meijer store will add to building looking taller. …
  • Thanks for the evening shots. It is so great to see what it looks like at night and to see people down there. The forest and the bridge are really beautiful.
  • I rode down to the new park yesterday. It was a beautiful sunny day, there was one guy down there playing his guitar by the river, but it was pretty empty. I was a little surprised to see the fire place has gas logs. I know that a real wood fire wo…
  • Just when i thought we had rid our city of those things he is bringing them back. I know some folks like to use these scooters but I did not miss seeing them spread all over town this summer.
  • I believe that latter era was what I was referring too. I do not know that the area was named "Lansing" Township before there was a City of Lansing. The township laws and boundaries that were later devised where often used for red lining …
  • Wow, would you look at that! I am going to enjoy using this street again, I was walking down there this spring and I was so disgusted with the condition of the street, all the potholes and broken pavement thrown up unto the sidewalk, it was really s…
  • Lansing Township was created for tax evaders and casual racist back when those areas where really the edge of town. It is much different today of course, as anyone who drives by Waverly High School could tell you. I think that today though it may …
  • Is the new fleet all articulated buses? I guess these will be used on RT#1 and in East Lansing so I won't see one passing by my building. I do get to see the new Amtrak locomotives. which I a train "nerd" think are very cool from my windows every da…
  • I will write to the Mayor, he or his office staff always respond. It would be good to see the city take over these silly boundary islands that are just lines on a map. I think the people who live and own businesses there deserve the better infrastru…
  • I am very sorry to hear about Roma, to me it really was like going to a shop in the North End of Boston. We get a couple of slices of "Grand Ma" pizza a week over there and often go on Wednesday for two for one bread-day. Is there any place else lik…
  • The work on the outside of the new storage facility at S.Washington and Holmes is beginning as I noticed they were pulling up the blacktop! I think this may be the first time in the history of Lasing that a blacktopped underused parking lot has been…
  • I live on S. Washinton Ave and have noticed the three-lane configuration works very well even at "heavy traffic" times. I think three-lanes could handle the traffic where it is currently 4 between MLK and S.Washington, and on the east end as well. T…
