  • This is a great thing to hear about. Of course to me [absent 35 yrs.] the "old football building" seems new, so it would seem they need more and improved space. It is great to see that other spots are included in these plans. I have wondered about t…
  • I had been hoping to hear about the hotels, and the rest of the plan moving forward. It will interesting to see how the leasing of the retail space goes. I think that being close to campus and Frandor will help filling those spaces, both of the new …
  • Of course I understand China is "communist" in that this is what they call their governing body, what they actually have is not communism, today it is a autocratic dictatorship and one ruling party with an centralized economy controlled by that dict…
  • I believe China does have a five thousand years of history for much of which they were the largest and most powerful country in the world, and they look at the last 200 years as a brief moment of turmoil in a long history of also believing in their …
  • Perhaps there is a lot of "blame" to go around, and I don't have an option some of the points you bring up, except I am pretty sure Democratic leaders and our local health officials where doing their best to keep us informed with the best and true a…
  • While at Frandor after a heavy rain I noticed the "rain gardens" are already draining the parking lots. I don't know if they are hooked up the new system. Many of them had a high water mark on the new grass which was dirty with parking lot run off. …
  • I was thinking the wonderful change was the person who is the President today. He was here to support our state, and gather support for his policies. That stands in stark contrast to the last time Air Force One was in Lansing, last October the forme…
  • I saw Air Force One and the other aircraft that traveled with President Biden to Capital Region Airport fly right over my building in East Lansing. I could see that it was Air Force One by the colors [and it is a 747!] from my patio! The giant cargo…
  • Thanks I will be getting out there soon sounds nice!
  • It is interesting to see the drain project progressing along Michigan Avenue. The rain garden pools are extending into East Lansing. It would be nice if there were a path down the median from Harrison to 127 it is very wide there. You could bike or…
  • Has anyone been on the new "Bear Lake" trail? I think it will be a beautiful forest to ride through.
  • It seems like traffic on Saginaw and Oakland, Cedar and Larch travels mainly in packs that fill all the lanes side to side due to the traffic signals. The packs fill the lanes because the can but are not many cars deep. With single lanes like on S. …
  • This a quite a study. It is very interesting to see the two way depictions. It shows it could be done. I am hoping this becomes a real project soon.
  • I guess it is the large amount of land we have to build on that is the reason most building don't make it beyond five or six stories in Lansing, it may be cheaper to build horizontally! Some bolder design should be considered, and buildings fronting…
  • A new monument has been placed on Capitol Ave in front of the Capitol Building. It is a war memorial made of grey stone, it look nice in it's protonate spot. The grounds in front are looking very pretty this year as I appreciated the peaceful scene.
  • The site preparation for the credit union building began today with crews pulling up the pavement. I am happy that we don't get much noise from the work going on. Behind there the building site on Evergreen has been cleared and filled in with top so…
  • There an article about the Lake Trust development in the LSJ.com [free] and I also saw a report on YouTube fox47 where they talk to the developer. He said the building's '60s Brutalist cement façade is a historic representation of this type of archi…
  • I took a drive through the University Edge side of the development, and found that the building's apartments seem to be fully leased. At least that would seem to be the reason there were so many cars parked there. It could be that these are "free" s…
  • Thank you, this looks pretty good. Seems to fit in with the other new buildings and has some nice green space, looks like the same windows as the Newman, but no patios or balconies.
  • The Evergreen site has been cleared except for some foundation walls on the east side are still being worked on. They have set up a construction crew trailer on the site as well. This project seems starting up, as opposed the the credit union site w…
