  • The Cherry Hill plan looks OK, with a bit of imagination I wonder if they could use the houses there that all must be over 100 years old, as part of the new buildings. Out east they would take a little house and strip it down the bare walls and inco…
  • I was wondering which project is called the "Lower Town Lofts"?
  • I rode my bike by the new Rotary Park area on the River Trail downtown, it is coming along nicely. I saw a big pile of sand for the beach, the fireplace looks really good, the colorful canopies were in place and the lights for the illuminated "fores…
  • This looks pretty good! The rooftop fun zone is very cool! There is going to be a great view from up there.
  • Looks like Greater Lansing will have another great "downtown" to add the other "downtowns". "Downtown Okemos" sounds good and has been a long time coming.
  • The city demolished the old picnic pavilion in Moores Park that had been closed for a couple of years. A new pavilion is being put up in about the same spot. The steel frame is already up. They said they are going to use some of the field stones fro…
  • The news about Mt. Hope is really welcome, it's almost unbelievable! I wonder if there has been any change in the paving materials that might perform better in the shaded areas of the road. I have noticed that many shaded streets have a lot of potho…
  • That is good news that there are things going on to get the Wing underway. I have been wondering about the Red Cedar project, has there been anything said about a starting date? They were saying late this summer, so here we are and no news. It would…
  • I took a look at the new Target Store in EL. I found it very nice, it seemed kind of small at first, I guess because the other stores are so huge. But then I noticed how nice and compactly the merchandise was displayed and how easy it was to find th…
  • Thanks! I am sort of like Icabad Crane in that I was away for 35 years before waking up in 21st Century Lansing! so I do not remember the names of either building, it might be a problem like calling MLK, Logan Street.
  • Down at the new brewery they have repaved and striped the parking lot, and there looks to be an outdoor area being built next to the overhead doors on the north side. Inside still has a little ways to go. One block north the Rusty Mug has arranged a…
  • I think the name will work OK as most people nowadays would not know the name Oliver Towers. Was the original name honoring someone named Oliver? I can not remember how it got that name. It is really looking great. I guess the upper floors would ac…
  • This is so great, it is really exciting to me! New Pavement!
  • Perhaps due to all the rain, we have had this season the summer wildflowers in the prairie lands area of Fenner Nature Center are really beautiful this year. The hillsides of the fenced-in area [where the buffalos used to be] on the south side are c…
  • Thanks for posting these pictures. I am wondering how folks feel about this project. I give it about a B+ or A- for effort, more trees along the streets and less bare cement in the "plaza" area would be the things they could improve on. I hope to be…
  • It is the highest bank on the north side of the river a building of any height would have been prominent on the skyline. [if they had to build something there] maybe the proposed hotel across the street will add to the skyline from the same hill.
  • I took a look at the new substation project yesterday and I found it pretty nice. The walk to the sunken garden is shade covered with a wide sidewalk going slightly uphill with nice lighting above and below. The windows where they say you can get a …
  • Thanks for the photo I had not noticed the mural went around the outside of the building. You are right about a little bit of color, the colored panels and flower wall at the substation really add a nice touch to the wall. I know they're not going t…
  • Thanks for posting. Those are some details! I am thinking this development will look pretty good.
  • The Great Wall now has a Green Wall too. The BWL recently planted one of the wall sides on the western edge with a nice looking display of plants forming a sort of modern painting done with flowers. The whole project is looking good although they ha…
