From what I've recently read, part of it was refurbished for senior living a few years ago. Anyone know if anyone is living there and if it's going to continue to be rehabbed?

In 1941 I went to the Roosevelt school on the south side of Fenkell for a couple of years. We lived on Keeler in Redford and it was the closest to our home. Anyone else a former student at Roosevelt? Then we moved to Cheboygan, Michigan.

Does anyone remember World Sports Car Center located on Livernois in the mid 50's. I believe it was at 17333 Livernois. I remember going there to see some exotic, at the time, sports cars when they were relatively new. Jaguars, Ferrari's, all used, not new. Any information would be helplful. Also who was the owner?
Thanks.

Soave to develop 400 apartments in Corktown including Checker Cab Building http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?21838-Soave-to-develop-400-apartments-in-Corktown-including-Checker-Cab-Building&goto=newpost Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:56:00 GMT
Controversial businessman Anthony Soave has announced "Elton Park" a project of 400 apartments in the Corktown pocket north of Michigan and east of Trumbull. Included in the project will be the Checker Cab building on Trumbull.

"The planned Elton Park development is expected to begin with the construction of more than 150 apartments in multiple buildings starting in the spring.

The project includes a rehabilitation of the historic Checker Cab building and construction of new mixed-use buildings with retail space on the first floors. The first phase is expected to be complete by December 2018.

All four phases of the project are expected to cost about $125 million; construction details on the other three phases have yet to be determined."

City Seeks RFPs for Residential Development on Wigle Playfield. http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?21835-City-Seeks-RFPs-for-Residential-Development-on-Wigle-Playfield&goto=newpost Wed, 28 Sep 2016 07:12:37 GMT Curbed reported that the City of Detroit is seeking proposals for residential development on Wigle Playfield in Midtown (Selden and Third Avenues)....
Curbed reported that the City of Detroit is seeking proposals for residential development on Wigle Playfield in Midtown (Selden and Third Avenues). My question is, "Why take away the only sizable playfield in all of Midtown (west of Woodward) for residential development when there are dozens of vacant lots and/or surface parking lots in the area?" Although Wigle Playfield was underutilized as an athletic field overall (despite the fact that skate boarders had set up shop behind the demolished rec center), the influx of new residents from areas surrounding the playfield would definitely cause an increase in interest for such activities as softball, football, basketball, skate boarding, and other outdoor events.

I think it's very short-sighted for the City of Detroit to give up a playfield for private development, especially when there are no public recreational areas in Midtown the size of Wigle Playfield. Great neighborhoods have great parks and playfields. Wigle Playfield, remodeled as a park/playfield, not residential, could be a great asset to Midtown.

It seems Detroit's hotel business in on a roll.
Even though we have lost several great hotels , it seems we've been on a building boom lately.
With the MGM,Greektown, Motorcity, Book Cadillac, and the David Whitney.
And several new on the way, The old fire station,Shinola, the hotel at the new red wings area and the newly mention West elm.
It seems Detroit's tourist and boutique hotel business is really picking up.
Is Detroit becoming more of a tourist town ?
