  • I was over at Preuss Pets this weekend and noticed they have put up a construction fence and closed the sidewalks around the Temple Building on Cesar Chaves at Cedar. It looks like this project is getting underway, which I believe means that these d…
  • This is good news. Even during the current situation, there has still been a lot of sidewalk traffic here, so I would think that they will be successful in that location as folks already in the habit of coming to REOtown for food and fun.
  • I have been to the Market a couple of times. I was also impressed with the store's decore and what they had for sale. I really like the locally baked bread department. The veggies and produce section was very nice and well-stocked. It is a smaller s…
  • That is good news!
  • I have seen a lot of patios at Metro Place [ymca] with furniture. and cars in the parking lot so there are people moving in there. Thinking of "Building 600" I guess that's the name, I would have built a couple more stories on the apartment side, th…
  • The re-hab on the small office building on S. Washington at Elm is looking good. Nothing too exciting but they have replaced the old pebble stone-faced panels with dark green colored plaster panels in the window columns. They look good and go well w…
  • There is a preview video of the Capital City market on lsj.com. The store looks great, a little more warehouse-like than I was expecting and it also looks bigger on the inside. It is very interesting that they will be, [at least to start] featuring …
  • It looks like a very preliminary drawing, I like that the building will have a nice facade facing Michigan on the south and the also on the west side, not crazy about the surface lot but it is depicted as having nice landscaping. I would think the e…
  • I saw in the "Eye Sore" feature of the City Pulse they featured the downtown traffic circle as the eyesore of the week. I agree that the circle should be a showpiece, not the afterthought it seems to be now. I am glad they did not put up a contempor…
  • Thank you for your kind thoughts. Kindness and time are the only remedies.
  • The City Pulse had an article about the tax levy area residents are being accessed. While I feel for those folks, one guy had just paid the tax for a house in Groesbeck, then he moved to Frandor and has another drain tax to pay. I think a clean rive…
  • Are the "islands" in the middle and the connecting streets in the township? They are some of the worst and most confusing and that's saying something! I think I saw the access road behind the eastern Frandor building had been closed. I wonder if th…
  • Last week when I came home from my cabin where I am off the grid, out of cell phone range, and always on a news blackout to hear that my younger brother was sick and the next day he passed away. I went back to the cabin to try to recover this week t…
  • I agree that the building is looking good, the best so far built by Gillespie. They have also planted a nice row of cedar trees along the back of the parking lot on the little street back there with many more other types of trees and shrubs. Also, t…
  • I agree that the school building is a beautiful example of Academic Gothic design, and was built to be a beautiful place for children's imaginations to grow. It is touching to me that the people of Lansing in those days built such beautiful public s…
  • I am not sure but I think there will be an entrance to the hotel near the tracks on the east side. There is a yet to be finished area there which may be the hotel lobby. I saw that they have planted some nice sized trees on Michigan Avenue, I love t…
  • I have been thinking the same thing, there was a bad accident just up from there at Hammond and MLK just yesterday. In the old days, you could pass under the Logan Street bridge. We used to call the trail under there and through the woods down to Mo…
  • This is the type of development I like to see happening right in the middle of one of Lansing's oldest neighborhoods. The combination of the smaller parts of the plan bodes well for its success. I will look forward to shopping at the Co-op which wil…
  • The city has installed a gate at the parking lot by the dam in Moores Park, with an orange construction type sign stating the date the parking lot will close. I wonder if this is for more work on the dam or River Trail? It does not seem like a secur…
