Looks like a pretty solid plan by The Platform. I often wondered about what the future held for that old Nursing home, glad to see it will see new life.

"The Platform Founders Dietrich Know and Peter Cummings are proud of their restoration of the iconic Fisher Building and projects in Midtown and the New Center.

For Knoer, it's the Islandview area of East Grand Boulevard and East Jefferson, at the entrance to Belle Isle.

After at least a year of planning amid many other projects, The Platform now pushing forward on outlining its plans for Islandview.

One key step: They've bought the Big Boy on East Jefferson, giving them one acre to redevelop at the entrance to the neighborhood.

The restaurant will be demolished after it closes on Easter Sunday.

Across the street, The Platform has entered into an agreement with intention to acquire five parcels from the Detroit Land Bank Authority on East Grand Boulevard between East Jefferson Avenue and Congress Street.

This development includes the renovation of a former nursing home at 130 E. Grand Blvd. that was built in 1898 and designed by Louis Kamper, architect of the Book-Cadillac Hotel, Book and Broderick towers and many other Detroit landmark"

Oakland County Is Coyote Country! http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?22284-Oakland-County-Is-Coyote-Country!&goto=newpost Wed, 29 Mar 2017 00:09:56 GMT
So screams the headline of Oakland County's official blog of March 10, an info posting that was a good read. Coyote sitings are increasingly common in SE Michigan. Although I have not seen any, I have seen tracks, dens and their distinctive squat several times. The must be wily coyotes. Does anyone have coyote sitings or stories?

Quote:

Oakland County is Coyote Country. Coyotes are learning and adapting to our ways far faster than we even try to learn their ways, however living together in peace is practical and possible. There is no reason to be frightened by a simple sighting of a coyote. Unfortunately, print and television media sometimes respond to increasingly common sightings with sensational fear-inducing news stories using phrases such as “The coyote was seen lurking in the woods.” Coyotes do not “lurk” in the woods any more than a deer or squirrel “lurks” in the woods. For the past few weeks sightings have increased in Oakland County as they do this time of the year. It’s usually only a fleeting glimpse, or an image captured by a motion-activated camera trap.

But why.............

Anyone know exotic animal laws? (A lawsuit would literally be a kangaroo court hehehehehe)

"DETROIT (WJBK) - A Snapchat video of a man walking a kangaroo in Detroit is quickly making its rounds on the internet.

A man has the animal on a leash and lets it down on the ground. The animal quickly begins hoping down the street, and the man jogs to keep up with it."

"Now, Northland's former anchor store, known to generations of Detroiters as J.L. Hudson's, could soon reinvent itself as luxury lofts that look out on landscaped parks, restaurants, stores and acres of new offices.

That’s the vision Southfield Mayor Ken Siver will share Thursday, when he’s scheduled to give his State of the City speech at City Hall. And residents will listen, while city planners and mayors across the country eye the ambitious plans for one of the nation's most storied shopping centers..."

Hello everyone. Never posted here before but I check out the site all the time.

I came across this video on YouTube and found it fascinating....I'm sure most of you have seen it but I'm wondering if there is some repository of more old footage like this. With the new '67 documentary coming out soon it got me thinking about what else could be pulled together.

Shameful really that it is still happening.

Lansing applies bandaids while the patient is bleeding to death. All those jobs, economy and wealth just going away from owner occupied homes. Engler, Granholm and Snyder all turned a blind eye.

The big question going into the draft is will the running game significantly improve with the addition of Rick Wagner and T.J. Lang on the O line and can Abdullah, Riddick and Zenner handle the work or does Quinn think he needs to draft a RB high? Draft defense before a back is my thought.

I would pass on a cap eating free agent QB. There is already enough money invested in that position and that's even before a new contract is offered to Stafford.
