  • I took a look at the two buildings going up on W Ottawa across from the Capitol Complex yesterday. It looks like the structures are finished and they are starting work on the exteriors. They are not finished yet but I was kind of disappointed to see…
  • This is good to see, I have avoided that road for years. Is the speed limit going to be 45mph? Drivers would haul ass down this stretch when it was crappy I think the lead-foots will love this! I would like to see this type of RR crossing on S Washi…
  • I had never heard of the cup of ice thing. That was very irresponsible and nearly criminal, did they sell the cough syrup too? I am still hoping that the legalization of marijuana will give folks a better option than drinking cough syrup. The idea o…
  • I read this on the River Trail website. It talked about road closing etc. There is room for a shared roadway east of MLK and some parkland and wide sidewalks from there to the west.
  • Has anyone looked at the plans for the River Trail extension on Moores River Drive? I took a look over there yesterday and all the construction is for one of the gates of the dam that is being repaired, seems like they just finished this project, an…
  • Going down bumpy old Baker Street yesterday I noticed a large excavation going on in the REOtown industrial park on the northeast side near the RR tracks. This is the first time I have seen any new activity in that area, I know that some sewer and d…
  • It seems like this would be a good time to make these changes, as people slowly come back to work they could get used to the new configurations without a lot of traffic and the city could make the changes without as much disruption. They never ask m…
  • Maybe a nice little dispensary in the Student Union would be a good idea, keep the kids on campus! Just kidding!
  • This an interesting feature for a downtown park. It is kind of screaming "vandalize me"! I hope that does not happen, they should be able to close and secure this area at night. I do like that the city is trying to expand options and attractions but…
  • This would be one of the best sites to develop something really great, I also hope someone else decides to develop this site. A dispensary would really be a waste of a huge space. Think "Gage" on MLK a small building however nice, surrounded by blac…
  • At least it is not going to be a law office or a bank branch, not very exciting, it seems like this would be one of the few retail businesses that are expanding so it is good to have a major tenant rather than empty storefronts like some of the new …
  • I would pick the MSU farm field view if I were moving in out there. It looks good, still, a lot of blacktop included. It would be nice to see a big suburban housing development that perhaps included a central community parking structure or "green pa…
  • I think this building would be too small for a grow house. The newest grow house is in several buildings on the south side Kalamazoo. That may have been the site where the bricked-up windows were noticed. That project seems to be nearing completion,…
  • The renovation of the one-story building across from Art's Pub on Hosmer has restarted. All the old siding has been removed, the old facade is not very special or historic-looking so I am sure the will put up some new siding. I can not tell what bus…
  • thank you for the information it is very good to hear things may get back to normal in the magical year of 2021!
  • Remodeling work has restarted on the small office building on the corner of Elm and S Washington. Seems as it had been over a year since any work was going on there. It is good to see and I hope that the building will be occupied soon. Nothing going…
  • I noticed the 600 building's progress yesterday. It all has to come together yet so I hope it looks good when finished. The "shades of gray" wall facing S Cedar is OK. I do like the "stonework" and bricks they are using on the first floor. They have…
  • When 496 was first built that bridge was about the only cool feature then, at the time after all those years of destruction and construction, our fabulous road to the future looked just like any other interstate highway which was a let down to me. I…
  • I was talking about the areas at ground level [city street level on the leftsides] along M.X. and St Joe. There are some trees there now, I think it would be a good place for a linear forest that could really change the landscape helped to reduce po…
  • I was hoping they will do something with the landscaping too. In Detroit, they landscaped the rebuilt parts of I-96 [I could be wrong on the highway number] very nicely with nice-looking walls, large plantings of shrubs and trees near overpasses, an…
