  • I'm happy it got reposted so I could see the other renderings and site plan, it was also good to see that they were recommending approval. I do hope they rebuild the trail under the bridge here and fix the pavement going west of N Grand River, it's …
  • @MichMatters I vaguely remember reading about a hotel on Wood Rd. I think it may have been a quote from a township official in one of the stories covering other things going on in the township referring to "a new hotel on Wood Rd". Don't quote me on…
  • I'm happy with that annexation proposal, taking on those taxes shouldn't prove a big deal to the city and will hopefully be enticing enough to get township residents to vote in favor of it. I haven't seen any case studies as to how exactly this w…
  • @Jared That's a good question. A lot of them are stick built with regular hotel layouts (no kitchen or bedrooms) so I'm not sure how those will fare as a reuse project but something like this one that is an extended stay would seem a realistic prosp…
  • I never heard about that one, I'd imagine this is related then.
  • @MichMatters I guess we'll have to wait and see. I missed that you said board of zoning appeals at first, I see an ethics board meeting canceled as well so I wouldn't make too much of it. The rendering looks well done and specific to that site so I …
  • @MichMatters No, I think you're thinking of the one on Meritt Rd near the Costco, this is West Rd north of the Holiday Inn Express.
  • LSJ has a subscriber only story about yet another hotel in the Lake Lansing/127 area: a four floor 122 room extended stay hotel on West Rd called WoodSpring Suites. Not terribly exciting but It's a good sign that given everything developers continue…
  • I'm all for this, this is an almost completely dead area right now. When I've stared at satellite images trying to discern where future development might make sense this stretch of N Grand River/Willow along the river is one of the spots I've though…
  • The Lansing School District is going to stop bussing high schoolers and instead give them CATA bus passes: https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/news/2022/08/05/lansing-schools-busing-cata-high-schoolers/10245566002/?fbclid=IwAR2PYro1lxZWmdZ2s5d…
  • Grand and Capitol will finally become two-way streets on Saturday, at least north of Washtenaw, the couple blocks nearest the freeway will be converted in the fall when freeway work wraps up in that section of 496: https://www.lansingstatejournal.co…
  • The poster deja vu over at SSP forum posted these updated but not yet final renderings from LinkedIn as the architect has been chosen for the new main IM building: Moody Nolan https://www.linkedin.com/posts/moody-nolan-inc-_spartan-activity-69588596…

  • Resurrecting this thread as it seems wise to separate out the GM stuff... This could be sort of interesting, an industry news magazine is reporting that the upcoming electric Corvette will be produced at the Grand River plant. If true it would be…

  • Yup, the millage is just a flat out "no"' from me. It's too much money , even if they lumped in a restored City Hall at that budget I'm not sure I could support it. I also don't trust Schor to make good decisions and possibly not even to have the ci…
  • Oh yeah, very good news. I was just wondering about the Stadium North project, it should prove a solid bit of infill. There's still the possibility of those apartments at Shiawassee and the train tracks as well, then of course whatever Gillespie doe…
  • @gbdinlansing I've known several people in the last year or two who have either had trouble getting a storage unit or had their rate dramatically increase presumably due to the high demand so there's something to it. I just don't get how so many peo…
  • That would suck to see that happen, it's bad enough the city gave Feldman's a tax incentive, this could very well kill the potential for a contiguous business district seamlessly spanning both sides of the freeway. I'm pretty disappointed to see one…
  • @gbdinlansing I snagged that rendering from the print version: And yeah, the skywalk remodel may end up a joke. I'd be a little surprised if all they do is end up painting it but that's kinda the way it looks it may go.
  • Well it may finally be happening, some residents of Groespeck are petitioning to be annexed by the city: https://www.lansingcitypulse.com/stories/city-of-lansing-asked-to-annex-eastside-portion-of-lansing-township,21862 There's obviously a long …
  • I saw this posted to Facebook today by WLNS showing the Neogen groundbreaking, it's just a hiring promotion for Neogen but it shows the rendering of the building in the background: https://fb.watch/epcJ-9gSbC/
