  • I recently saw an interesting video on Youtube about an apartment building built in Milan Italy that is a vertical forest. It is not only beautiful but absorbs huge amounts of carbon pollution from the city air. That was something like the idea I ha…
  • There are some great photos of all the billions of dollars worth of developments currently being constructed in the Greater Lansing area on the LSJ.com website. It was pointed out that that $ 3.5 billion dollars, is an amazing number for a city our …
  • On Michigan Ave in EL, they are finishing up the water main work and have repaved the street there. I was a bit disappointed that they have not upgraded the streetscape, no nice new curbing or sidewalks at the corner just the basics that was there b…
  • I was wondering about the Delux Motor Inn site, I thought they were going to address that site as well. It is going to be great to see the new development going up on the Lake Trust Block.
  • I could see multi-floor "platforms" built at different levels using the stacks as a base to build the floors and perhaps as the elevator shafts. The floors could be something like four levels on one stack then four levels up on the next stack leavin…
  • There is a bit of an ode to the three smokestacks written in the LSJ online. As a person who grew up "under the stacks," it is kind of amusing to me that today's Lansing folks have such a fondness for them. They are smokestacks after all. While in …
  • That's pretty cool! On my trip up north lately, there have been many very large windmill blades on trucks, even larger than the last windmills installed by Ithica, on US-127 heading toward the new array of mills being erected south of the older gro…
  • Just when you think there is a part town that may never be redeveloped they have been coming in with plans for a spot like this! What a good sign for Lansing. Now we need to repave the bridge and road there, the street has one the worst road surfac…
  • I wonder how or why someone on the City Council would be against building more housing? Maybe she just trying to make some final waves before she exits her position. I believe that this area is going to need a lot more housing in the future as I th…
  • If you would like to see something kind of amazing checkout the Googleamaps 2017 photo of this corner, it is a "before picture" from only two years ago that really show how far downtown EL has come in such a short time. It will great to see an offic…
  • I went to Silver Bells and noticed these two places were open. I thought it may be just a pop-up deal just for that night, It is great to see they are reopening both places. Silver Bells was very enjoyable this year with the weather being just right…
  • I was pleasantly surprised when I drove past this building yesterday. It is starting to look pretty good! It is true that the stone siding is only on the first floor, but the siding above looks alright, now that it is nearing the finish I am happy w…
  • It will be a great day when I pass by this school and see the renovations have begun!
  • I was by here Monday, and it is further along towards finishing. I am impressed by how nice the renovation looks, I think it will be a great address and will fill up quickly.
  • Opps I was commenting on an old post.
  • I agree it is a downturn that is possible especially with the current "leader" in DC. What gives me a little hope is despite all this trade war nonsense the economy has kept rolling along quite well. I would think with different leaders and retreati…
  • I have not been in yet, but the Sleep Walker Spirits and Ale House looks really nice and the menu also looks interesting. They put up a nice new facade and awning next door at the Wheel House pottery, and there is a nice new "gateway" in front of th…
  • I hope they build something that actually has the riverside in the plan, it seems like there would be a nice view from that high bank.
  • It is interesting to think that the huge parking lot around Sears was one big reason many folks left downtown forever and now it sits there a huge empty parking crater. That lot is a very large area, I could see a whole neighborhood of housing and r…
  • On Hazel Street, the "Wing" building has been cleared out to the joust throughout the whole building. Four or five large propane tanks have been installed outside I guess to assist with the demolition process. I believe that all the former tenants h…
