  • This the nicest looking 7-eleven I have ever seen! I think that it was smart for The Hub to offer the former businesses space in their new building. They had those spaces leased to those businesses before the building was built.
  • The depiction of the solar farm's layout looks like they leave quite a lot of open land in the pastures as well as some ponds and marshlands. Some grasses will grow with small amounts of light like the wheatgrass farmers plant to cover their fields …
  • I have spoken to QD about the change in the flavor of the milk. They said that yes they closed the bottling plant on S Washington but did not say where they now bottle the milk, he just said it was Michigan milk. I go to QD for two reasons the MSUFC…
  • I have been wondering about the brewery up the street. This is another location where work had been stopped for months. They really did a lot of renovations on this space already it would be a shame if they did not get it finished. A bit further up …
  • That is truly a bummer! My desk-side window looks out at this building, and I have noticed that no one has been doing anything over there for at least eight months or more. Some fool did crash his truck into the parking lot taking out the street sig…
  • It is very good to see a local banking institution investing in one of our downtowns. I do wonder as I drive by the big buildings north of town, what are all those people doing in there? What are their jobs? What are they doing with my money? Now t…
  • My neighbor Linda Tanner went to the School for the Blind with Stevie Wonder, she said he was very nice and full of energy.
  • I drove by this site and found a lot of activity going on, a second elevator tower is going up on the eastern side of the project. I also like that the state is looking more closely at the subsidies they grant. This location, in particular, may not…
  • Just like the BWL wall where no one lingers, I think it is a bit optimistic to imagine a lot of people hanging out in this alley-way [?]. Maybe it is the backdoor for the apartment building leading to the parking lot? Someone should ask!
  • I was at MSU at the same time as Ervin, and I would often see him at the Kellogg Center, and also in downtown Lansing a couple of times where I saw him shopping at Kositcheks and Linn and Ownes Jewelry Store while I was also shopping there. I even s…
  • Good News! This is going to be truly unique and hopefully beautiful part of our urban landscape. I don't believe I have seen anything like this development in the middle of a city anywhere.
  • It looks like the apartments are going up faster than the hotel. I like the very large windows that can open for fresh air. Those folks will have a great view!
  • This looks like it was built to last. I wonder why they took this bridge out? It looks like there was space enough to pass under 496 there. The bridge was less than 50 years old when the removed it.
  • This project has to be finished, and I like the developer's take on this, that it will be finished and it will be a great thing for Lansing. I am not going to even think about it all coming to a halt. I wonder why this issue was not resolved before…
  • It looks quite dynamic there is a lot going on for a small building. The buildings this will replace are unremarkable but relatively modern so I am happy to see this will be a teardown and building something new, not repurposing the old buildings. W…
  • Wow, I get an A! Some photos of the old days can draw me in and I can really picture old Lansing. Thanks for posting this one. I wonder if the pavement in this photo is the original concrete pavement of which there is a remnant on displayed in this …
  • It was very busy on this street. It must be in town, maybe the eastern border of Lansing near present-day Frandor/127? I remember a photo I saw of the interchange of Grand River and Saginaw which made kind of criss-cross that may have been the boule…
  • Great shot! I was thinking that it looks kind of monolithic at this point as I drove by. I am hoping they use some quality window treatments which would help a lot. It really does fill the spot and there is no Michigan Ave side parking structure or …
  • Don't speed down S.Washington Ave in REOTown today! The limit is 25mph! I have watched the cops stop at least six cars this morning! It is a good idea as I have seen drivers using the center left-turn lane as a passing lane to get by people going 25…
  • There two individuals that one could point to and hold responsible for bad politically motivated spending decisions, the Speaker of the House and the Senate President. I believe we have lost faith in the State of Michigan because that is exactly wh…
