Something to keep an eye on...

Quote:
WYOMING — A southwest Michigan real estate firm plans to redevelop a key site commercial site along 28th Street SW, according to public documents.

Portage-based The Hinman Co. says it wants to acquire the land and building that was previously home to Klingman’s Furniture and Rogers Department Store along 28th Street SW in Wyoming with hopes to redevelop the site into office space for a “national client.”

James Pollock, general counsel for Hinman Co., wrote in a letter to the city of Wyoming that the company has an unspecified prospective tenant in place for the site. The possible tenant would consolidate multiple Grand Rapids-area offices and locate approximately 450 employees on the site with room for future growth.

Hinman executives were not immediately available for comment.

Tech firm 'Switch' gave the public a peek inside the former Steelcase Pyramid, which has been repurposed into a high-security data center outside of Grand Rapids. They were clearly channeling some sort of James Bond Super-Villain aesthetic in the redesign. There's a short video in the link below, which shows some parts of the building, including an eerie swinging pendulum which is original to the 1989 structure.

If you are like me and wondering what Switch is / what they do, according to Wikipedia:

Switch is a privately held company based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company is the developer and operator of the SUPERNAP, data center facilities, and provides colocation, telecommunications, cloud services, and content ecosystems.[
