    Good find. So the construction crain will be 460’ tall. Anyone know what the actual building height is supposed to be? Obviously it will be less than 460’ based on this.

    They are also still covering all the caissons with earth after the drilling and concrete is poured. If the intention was to build on top of them soon, why bother with the effort to continue covering...

    This is unfortunately very true. If you are not physically able to use an escalator, coming from ground transportation you have to first take an elevator up to the sky bridge, then another separate...

    Could be.

    Either way, they still have a ton of drilling equipment in the hole. Once that is cleared out, the other buried piles are dug back up, and the ramp along Woodward starts to go away......

    Southwest has been forced to cancel a significant number of their flights because of the grounding of their 737max planes. Routes such as DTW-Vegas that overfly their other hubs are often the first...

    If you look really closely in the satellite view of Google maps, you can see where it is.

    Basically, the midrise building (not the tower) is built in the shape of a capital letter “H” if looking...

    If MLS wants to pay for a new soccer stadium, great... welcome to Detroit.

    If some rich dude wants to spend a ton of their own money to build a soccer stadium in Detroit... I’d hope the mayor or...

    My guess is the completion date has not been pushed back YET. If they are still in design, then they probably don’t know how long it will fully take to build... as they don’t fully know what is...

    One optimistic point is that Detroit is still woefully behind the other large Midwestern cities when it comes to large scale hotel options downtown. There is a large void here in that regard, which...

    The other nice thing about this flight is that it is timed well for onward Lufthansa connections to the Middle East and India. Given the limited number of good options to reach those areas...

    If I remember correctly, the leaked floor plan document showed the proposed observation deck floor(s) having an abnormally tall height.... as in, the observation deck alone contributed significantly...
  13. Lufthansa to launch new DTW-Munich flight in May 2020

    Beginning in May 2020, Lufthansa will launch a new non-stop flight between Detroit Metro Airport and Munich, Germany. As announced, the flight will operate on an A350 (big, new plane) and complement...

    Another +1 on the programming issue.

    Hart Plaza needs to be reconstructed as a festival site. And yes, that means having the ability to easily fence much of the area off allowing only patrons...

    Makes sense. In my younger days I worked on construction sites that used similar type cylinders (though they were never close to the cylinder size in the Hudson project). Anyway, the purpose of...

    I just call it “FAST-er”.

    It is faster than the bus that used to connect DTW with downtown, but still way too slow to be justified as “fast” by most people who can afford a plane ticket.

    This is correct.

    Back in the late 1800s before automobiles were big and we developed the road network (and huge amounts of paved surfaces) we have today, the standard was to combine both storm...

    Will be disappointed in the plaza goes away. I thought this was a good first step to improving the pedestrian connectivity of Hart Plaza to Downtown. It seemed to work fine with traffic too.

    And who maintains them? Who fixes them when something goes wrong (which happens to any software system)? And the answer to that is a technician who costs a lot more to employ than a SOS clerk.

    It is the “you get what you pay for” concept that so many people in Michigan struggle to grasp.

    Lower taxes collected translates into less money to employ SOS workers, which results in longer wait...

    For the part of the stadium us “common folk” get to see, I completely agree. Comerica is solidly in the middle of the new ballparks, not top 5 or 10, but not bottom 5 or 10 either. There are some...
