There are three items on the upcoming meeting of the Grand Rapids Planning Commission.
644 Chestnut St SW
Rezoning of an abandoned railroad right of way from SD-IT (Industrial) to TN-TCC. The property is currently owned by 655 Godfrey Land LLC. The adjacent warehouse, the east of the old railroad, was rezoned from SD-IT to TN-TCC in 2018. The expectation is the property will be incorporated into the redevelopment of the warehouse.
The parcel is immediately to the west of the Oxford Trail bike path.

What is still available if you want to travel to a neighboring city? (Daily service)

The City's Strategic Plan sets a transportation mode shift goal of 55% by 2035; meaning that 55% of commuter trips would be made via a mode other than by a single occupant vehicle [aka: a car, or in the 21st Century, more accurately: "a massive SUV or pickup"].

Some maps flew around social media of housing costs by county. Those maps used the Median MLS Listing Price divided by the county's median income to calculate the years-to-buy metric. The years-to-buy metric is a common way to correlate housing prices to regional income. Unfortunately the low granularity of county level data hides a great deal of variability.
