  • That seems wrong to me, business is business I guess. Who is ever going to buy a house up there, I would hope they get their property taxes reduced.
  • I meant leveling not leaving!
  • I traveled west down Michigan Ave the other day and I noticed that the hotel will stand out quite prominently, as the neighboring buildings are set back and along with the tracks do not block the view. It could look pretty cool. I was noticing also…
  • Today at the LSJ.com site they talk about the Park Place development. It is confusing to me, as to why they have changed the plans so radically and come up with something less appealing and much smaller. Have "market forces" changed so much, is it t…
  • The hut that burned and is now demolished was the smaller hut-building next to the larger hut on the trailside. The trailside hut is where they have the summer BBQ once a year which is the only time I see activity there. I often wonder what's in the…
  • Thank for the information. I remember the drill press out front, it is such a great building I'm surprised it is still standing. The building next to the river trail is occupied by a flooring company which they are using as a warehouse. I would put …
  • I think they watch the posts here. Today there is also one of their 'Projects to Watch' articles. It is kind of interesting that they did not cover all the projects, that we have more than six big projects going up here is very impressive to me.
  • That building is in pretty good shape but seems large for just a bar/restaurant. If they do move down there it will be a challenge, it is kind of in a hidden area most folks would not know about unless they use the river trail. If they create a real…
  • Up at the substation, they have removed a lot of fencing giving a better view of the wall. There is a huge pile of black topsoil near the new garden, and what I hope is just the start of planting there are three tiny new trees along Malcolm X and on…
  • I saw the elevator structure is going up on the corner of Lenawee and Townsend. Looks taller than I remember from looking at the drawings. Great to see this building going up. The park looked really nice as well with the daffodils blooming around th…
  • It is kind of ironic that the developer is going from crayon colors to black and white. I guess he got the message. A lot of blacktop is what they need here in Lansing, that is for sure. It looks like the lot will not be visible from Michigan Avenue…
  • Yes, I guess you are right, and it will help to extend the "stadium district" to the east. Now we need a great restaurant to move into the train depot.
  • No More Self-Storage! I have been disappointed to see that the renovation of the former Holiday Inn [may not be done] into self-storage units has no improvements to the outside of the building, in fact, it looks worse. The new business in Edgewood …
  • It may not be new to everyone but I found some very interesting construction project videos on youtube from "The B1M". the videos make it look like every country in the world except the US has super-sized development and infrastructure projects happ…
  • Thank you for the information about zoning. You all know these things on a deeper level than I do, so I do like hearing what is behind some of these issues. It is interesting to see urban use replacing industrial use in Lansing and other cities. I…
  • It is interesting when you come across a hill or high bank in Lansing as the landscape seems so flat around here. It would be a good idea to take advantage of that height with underground parking and apartments with a great view on top. Is that whol…
  • So pretty! Thanks for posting the photos now I going to ride down there to see the cherry trees.
  • I go by this building often and I noticed some renovation going on in the front of the building nearest to S Washington. That may be the area this new business is moving into. I would like to see the owners of this complex restore the Washington Ave…
  • I have this idea of planting a forest of trees along both sides of the 127 embankments with a pedestrian/bike paths along be the street level on the east and west sides. They would lead directly to the cross streets into Frandor without crossing so …
  • Thanks, it was pretty cool to live in such an old house except it was pretty drafty in the winter. This house was what they called a "floated over house" or "Long Point House" at one time part of the town was on Long Point which is at the very tip o…
