    The city's population is a lagging indicator. The rate of decline has plummeted (maybe even halted, as the census estimates are both estimates and use recent but not current data to make their...

    The article clearly implies that the cancellation has to do with shaky corporate finances, and not relocating to Detroit. For what its worth, its much less painful to call off the wedding than it is...

    The original post is a valid comment, but entirely unrelated to Detroit, so far as I can tell.

    I am not in favor of having racing on Belle Isle, and I never have been. But we should realize that there is a cost to not having it there. The race invests money in the island park's maintenance,...

    Zads I think you are way off here. Wayne County is THRILLED with the plans for the new jail and getting rid of the Fail Jail project. It will be a net plus for taxpayers, give the county...

    Detroit can support at least several "urban format" stores, whichever brand brings them doesn't matter too much. Target, Walmart or Meijer. I have a hunch that who does land first will open a...

    I still think the Uniroyal site is best for multiple reasons.
    1) Room for a grand aquarium (or a modest one with room to grow)
    2) Also room to locate other institutions of science and learning,...

    If you are going to allow gambling in Michigan, then there isn't a good reason to not allow sports betting. I was opposed to Detroit casinos back in the day. I have evolved, though, and think they...

    I don't think I've ever been in 12 Oaks Mall (I'm a need-to-shop only kind of guy, and never go to a mall to just hang out). I can't speak to its specifics. But retail is declining across the...

    The advantages of the Uniroyal site are several. First, it has ample room for more than one building, if they wanted to do a planetarium or natural history museum or whatever. And room for parking...

    Brick and mortar stores will continue to decline in size and number. They'll never go away completely, but they are in a rapid decline. Successful retail centers will combine some stores with...

    That is one of 2 good reasons not to involve city money: the other being that the institution would struggle financially when the city has a revenue hiccup; and it would be at the whims of often...

    I would say booming because: we have reversed the outflux to an influx of residents, businesses, and visitors to the city. And because in past years you almost couldn't give land and buildings away...

    Or they may really embrace it. As for pricing, I think they should either follow an annual membership model (hypothetically $50 per adult, $35 for kids, $200 per family, etc) with unlimited visits,...

    MasterBlaster, it seems that by their actions MLS has indicated that their preference for the next bid is Cincinnati. You might be right that they want neither 2 nor 0 clubs in Ohio, although I...

    A lot of people are making valid points about parking and transit downtown. I think emuSteve is right about Detroit never joining the "transit heavy" ranks of NYC, DC, etc. But there is still...

    One of the articles I read yesterday mentioned the Zoo envisions donations/sponsorships to cover construction. I'd be curious about Atlanta's aquarium and how much its operating expenses are, and...

    I have been wanting this for years! I remember being raked over the coals here for "hating" the Belle Isle Aquarium. I never had anything against it, other than the fact it was a tiny version of...

    Don't get me wrong, EMU, if I could wave my magic wand and put a stadium somewhere in the Motor City for Arsenal Detroit FC, I would make it Corktown. But I don't think now that there is any MLS in...
