I'm such a booster of Grand Rapids and West Michigan.  Things just keep growing and making living here a pleasure.  The steady development and redevelopment of downtown is changing the look of Grand Rapids. Some may have thought with the completion of the Medical Mile and the 34-story River House condo project that we were slowing down.  After all, how much more could there be to do?

Actually, a lot.  WZZM TV13 reports that as we speak, $167 million is being invested in the downtown area, according to Downtown Development Authority Retail Specialist Anne Marie Bessette.

As they used to say, 'film at eleven.' Stay tuned for more excitement.
