    So if the theatre is not approved for demolition, does that mean Illitch wins a consolation victory in that he can say to the city: “I can’t/haven’t redeveloped the United Artist building portion as...

    Actually, it sounds no different than any other American “1st class” city these days.

    Just about every major US city shortchanges paying for the basic maintenance on their transit systems. ...

    The City is still a very difficult place to do business and developments. It has gotten much better no question, but “getting better” is still well short of being good.

    Bedrock has the past...
  4. Good post. It is amazing how many people think...

    Good post. It is amazing how many people think schools can be “fixed”. Schools are a reflection of the parents who send their kids there. If the majority of parents are active, resourced, and...
  5. I want the whole region to grow and prosper......

    I want the whole region to grow and prosper... both the City of Detroit and its suburbs.

    We all saw what happened when it was Suburbs vs. City for decades, with most of the investments in the...

    I see the hotel is getting a new paint job from the outside. I wasn’t able to go in, so can’t tell if the changes are purely cosmetic.

    A while back it was reported that this hotel may change...

    The real question I have is what does this mean for the region?

    I am assuming that Auburn Hills will remain the North American HQ. Does this merger bring new or expanded engineering here, or...

    As we all know, the plan has always been to get more parking.

    And while most of us would obviously all prefer they redevelop the theater, there is/was nothing stopping them from just...

    Illitch UA Playbook:

    Step 1: Make false claim that theatre needs to be torn down. Associate false claim with promised “great redevelopment” that will never actually happen. Sell the city on the...

    I actually am really impressed with the new option (5B). I will give MDOT credit, as I didn’t think they had it in them to propose something like this. As far as the Brush Park connection, I am not...

    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.
  12. They are also still covering all the caissons...

    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...

    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...
