    Not really sure why people are getting confused by the detours. Google Maps has all closures and constructions areas reflected on their app. I have been navigating / avoiding the construction...

    Ah yes, this is the moment when Detroit's suburbs begin to realize that massive sprawl, single-use zoning, and car-centric development were maybe NOT a great idea. Better reverse five decades of poor...

    A great idea, and I'm happy to see a young man taking the initiative to push for a redesign. Take a look at Chicago, and the pride and symbolism associated with their flag--a well-designed flag can...

    Curmudgeonly baby boomers (not all) refuse to the see the good in Detroit's rebound, despite the evidence in front of their eyes. They're still vindictive from the Coleman Young years. They think...

    Glad to see they are implementing the new I-75 alignment as part of the design. I was wondering what would happen if someone started developing that without that in mind. The future I-75 alignment...

    A quick search on atdetroit.net reveals my original join date as August 2006! The website was already 9 years old and the leading resource for Detroit news and development. Back then almost no one...

    Wow, things sure looked empty downtown without the Compuware and Z Garage buildings. Reminds you how far the city has come in 20 years.

    Thanks for those thoughts. Let's take a look at these photos and see if restoring a small section of Russell's ROW would significantly "pave over" Forest Park. I think it's evident from the photo...

    It's not so much a problem for bikes or pedestrians, but traffic flow in general is greatly impeded by this ridiculous roadblock. Continuous street grids mean improved traffic flow, which means...

    It seems like a no-brainer to extend the Dequindre Cut up the existing ROW along Dequindre St. north of Mack, through Milwaukee Junction to Hamtramck. Also would be nice to reconfigure some of the...

    I'll miss walking over those grates on Grand River and Gratiot that you could look down like 60 feet to the bottom. Always gave me a little surprise when I was walking along to peer so deep below the...

    Detroit has way too many of these dead-ended through streets and modifications to its street grid. It does nothing but hamper mobility, traffic, and create dead zones like the Russel cul-de-sac. This...

    We can only hope. Anyone would do a better job owning this building than the Marouns. They are truly despicable people. Ford is moving its mobility/tech operations to Corktown, so this would jive...

    If they're gonna remove all the ramps, they might as well cap the Lodge south of Fort and extend Congress across as well.

    This is the classic definition of a "Win-Win"... County gets the new jail at no major additional expense to taxpayers; Gilbert gets the jail site which will surely be successful for him; and the city...

    I believe it was part of the old Thorn apple valley complex before they closed. I have some old Baistís maps that show these buildings around when they were built, Iíll have to dig them up to see if...

    Have you been down at the site lately? There is a ton of work going on there. Looks mostly like site prep. Moving utilities, removing sidewalks and removing parts of the underground parking. Itís...

    The artist was granted permission from the owners to paint on this building. It was part of the Murals in the Market festival in 2017.

    The mural is by local artist Pat Perry, who also did the DAPL-themed mural on the Wilkins Street Bridge in Eastern Market.

    Here are the later 1947 Saarinen/Pilafian plans... Markedly different from his first concept some 20 years earlier. Sorry for the shamefully mediocre quality, these are huge, and I had to photograph...
