Up to two new buildings and a parking deck are in the planning stages at MSU's Grand Rapids Research Center. Construction could commence in 2019.

Michigan State pursuing plans for two new Grand Rapids buildings

GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- Michigan State University is pushing forward with plans to construct two more buildings on its Grand Rapids Research Center site, the university announced Friday. MSU’s Board of Trustees authorized university administrators to enter into a public-private partnership with Health Innovation Partners to develop the projects at 400 Monroe Ave. NW, the roughly 4-acre site where the research center is located. The partnership agreement lays the groundwork for the developer to pursue the construction of a parking garage and a new building along Michigan Street, where space would be leased to MSU and other tenants...

KENTWOOD, MI — Buddy’s Pizza, an iconic metro-Detroit pizzeria known for its rectangular, deep dish pies, is coming to Kentwood.

It plans to open at 4061 28th St. SE, the former site of Carrabba’s Italian Grill, which closed in February 2017. It’s expected to open this spring, said Rene Cizio, a spokesperson for Buddy’s.
Van Andel Arena, DeVos Performance Hall rank among busiest U.S. venues

Quote:
GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Van Andel Arena and DeVos Performance Hall have once again been recognized by music-industry publications for ranking among the busiest venues of their size in the U.S.

Among venues with a capacity between 10,001 and 15,000, Van Andel was listed as the third busiest venue in North America in 2018 by Billboard. It was also ranked as the fifth busiest venue, of its size-range, in North America by VenuesNow.

Acts such as Thomas Rhett, Elton John, Shania Twain and James Taylor contributed to the venue’s success last year, according to a news release from the Grand Rapids-Kent County Convention/Arena Authority. The CAA is the public authority that owns the arena and DeVos Performance Hall.

Meanwhile, DeVos Performance Hall was ranked 15th on VenuesNow’s top stops list among venues with capacity between 2,001 and 5,000. The performance hall hosted acts such as Lauren Daigle, Alice Cooper, Lindsey Stirling and David Byrne.

On Grand Rapids' West Side, a new, commercial-scale solar array and battery storage system was installed atop the Bridge St. Market / Meijer development, and just started up last week.

Michigan’s first commercial-scale solar + storage system up and running via Consumers Energy

Michigan’s first ever rooftop solar array and battery storage system debuted last week in the growing area of Grand Rapids. Nearly 1,800 solar panels atop the Bridge Street Market and adjoining buildings between Bridge and First Streets within the Circuit West district are accompanied nearby by a 500-kilowatt battery.

“Today, there is very little storage on the grid, so electricity is generated just moments before you use it,” said Garrick Rochow, Consumers Energy’s senior vice president of operations. “With large batteries, we will make our grid more efficient, effective and sustainable. It’s a critical part of Michigan’s energy future and it’s happening here at Circuit West.”...

Referred to as Southwest Community Campus High School, it is going to break ground this spring, on land purchased by the school district in January. Construction costs for the school are estimated at $20 million. The school will feature bilingual curriculum to serve the largely-Latino population of the neighborhood.

Holland-Grand Rapids commuter bus service could be reality in fall 2020

Quote:
The proposed pilot program for a commuter bus service along the Chicago Drive/I-196 corridor between Holland and Grand Rapids was presented Thursday, March 7, to the Mobile GR Commission.

If successful, the tentative service called “West Michigan Express” might then expand busing services or even evolve into a commuter rail service along the same route, said Patrick Waterman, Hudsonville city manager and chair of the West Michigan Express Task Force.

On any given weekday, 27,000 people head in either direction along the Chicago Drive corridor between Holland and Grand Rapids to get to work, according to the West Michigan Express Task Force.

The task force bills the West Michigan Express, in either bus or rail form, as a regional transportation service that would attract major employers, reduce traffic congestion, increase available parking and aid those who either can’t or don’t want to drive.
