  • @Lymon89 Yeah, when I was looking into the concept it looked like it was a local guy behind it and he's been at for awhile. It looks like he now has the backing of a well known multi-millionaire baseball player so at least this one iteration of it l…
  • @Lymon89 Was that the student greenhouse project or the baseball thing?
  • Something called Strikeout Baseball is coming to Ferris Park courtesy of a local baseball player, John Smoltz. https://www.fox47news.com/neighborhoods/downtown-old-town-reo-town/john-smoltz-strikeout-baseball-stadium-coming-to-ferris-park-in-lans…
  • No arguments here, that building will get no love from me. I do hope the site is reserved for something more than a 4-5 floor wood frame apartment building though. I don't hate the concept for an entertainment venue along the lines of this or the De…
  • I just wanted to share a pretty good YouTube channel I found a few months ago that keeps up on all the developments in Detroit for anyone interested. The Gordie Howe Bridge's towers are probably over 2/3 done, the new high rise (2nd tallest in Detro…
  • @MichMatters I didn't remember all that, it makes more sense now. I tend to agree on the timeline for the shuffleboard place, unless they do something really unique there I don't see how they survive. I could possibly see it working if they had dive…
  • Yeah, the whole situation with kicking out the successful restaurant that had been there for years for this somewhat odd proposal is a bit of a head scratcher. I'd guess there's something going on behind the scenes, maybe or maybe not nefarious, tha…
  • I'm not really sure about this plan with the City Market building but I am glad they didn't sell it off yet. In my mind, if the Lansing Center stays where it is then the City Market site would be best suited to a hotel, hopefully a proper high-rise.…
  • @MichMatters I made it by there today and I'm surprised at what it looks like underneath there as well, I'll never understand why someone paid thousands of dollars to put ugly, relatively high-maintenance wood paneling over attractive and low mainte…
  • I don't know what to expect from them on the Washington side of the property. I still have a feeling it's one of the sites in play for the new performing arts center, along with the Atrium Building and probably a couple other options. I'm just glad …
  • I stopped by and grabbed a quick picture of the Lake Trust site with my phone. Work is well under way on the first floor columns.
  • To be clear, my problem isn't with the use of the building, I'd just prefer to see the site cleared and prepared for development rather than see that little building reused for anything. On the subject of pot shops, I don't think the market is anywh…
  • I really had hoped to see them give up and sell that Sawyer site. Hopefully they still do sooner rather than later and it gets developed in a similar way to the Red Cedar site, it'd be nice to have that gap filled in. It's good to hear they're at le…
  • I was also wondering if that was going to be parking, I'm not sure how parallel parking on that part of St Joe will work out the way people drive there though.
  • @Jared I went ahead and resized all the pictures, sorry I thought it would automatically resize on uploading. @gbdinlansing I believe that house shaped building is supposed to be a restaurant, I don't think they've said anything about exactly wha…
  • Pictures from around downtown (also more pics in that Flickr link): There's not much visible progress on the outside of the Lake Trust Building, just some trash shoots out of windows. They finished drilling the foundation for the new building a cou…
  • There was that mention of the local venture capital guy who wanted to build a high rise, I wouldn't be surprised to see him partnering with a developer. One of the downtown organizations' Facebook groups recently posted a picture of that abandoned b…
  • Fox 47 had a story today about less state workers and they interviewed Gentilozzi, he said they will have details of a new multi family development within a few weeks. They alluded to it involving the Atrium Building, he also owns the parking lot at…
  • @Lymon89 Agreed, I've been fulling stripping and reglazing all the windows in my house. I don't think the stained glass windows should even be that difficult to fix if you're not dealing with broken glass. I managed to regrout and repair some of the…
  • @gbdinlansing I have mixed feeling about the Clara's thing. Seeing the a chain place go in there and the place divided up isn't the most ideal use of the space imo. They also mentioned replacing windows, I hope they retain as many of the stained gla…
