    Both parties have been more concerned with sabotaging the other party as of late, and trying to make sure their opponent is unable to do anything beneficial.

    Point being, your argument basically...

    Anytime businesses close, you often hear the blame placed on sometimes else. I cant count how many times I have read about a business closing and the owner blames it on a nearby road construction...
  3. Well, at some point (probably in the not too...

    Well, at some point (probably in the not too distant future) they are going to finish the drilling of caissons. I haven’t bothered to count how many have actually been drilled & placed yet, but in...
  4. With regards to the Book Building, I think it was...

    With regards to the Book Building, I think it was announced or implied that the tower portion will be residential, and the attached block portion will be a hotel. That being the case, I am still...
  5. I generally agree. Ignoring all the snaz, the...

    I generally agree. Ignoring all the snaz, the Hudson site is functionally office above retail (plus event space) on the block site, & hotel and residential in the tower site. Neither should be a...
  6. As mentioned in an earlier post, Minnesota is an...

    As mentioned in an earlier post, Minnesota is an example of successful liberal state politics. The statistics reflect that. Most conservative cannot bring themselves to believe that conclusion ...

    1- Steel will rise up for the TCF Bank HQ. Posters will have very mixed feelings as it will be great to have more infill, but sadly the structure’s built architecture will be even more aesthetically...
  8. Doesn’t matter, the graduates will still leave...

    Doesn’t matter, the graduates will still leave whether they had a good education or a bad one. More educated people tend to have less kids, and at older ages. So arguably that works against...

    The mid-to-larger sized states that are doing well in population growth tend to have well run state governments. There are good conservative governments and bad conservative governments, just like...

    Metro Detroit has had very poor legislative representation in Lansing for at least the past 40 years. And this is despite the fact that over half of the state’s population lives in the 7 county...

    If toll revenue projections are not met, 1 of 3 things could happen:
    1- The tolling period is extended, as in, tolls are collected for additional years until the necessary revenue is reached.
    2-...

    The current limiting height factor for ships coming up from Toronto is the QEW Bridge over the Welland Canal near Niagara Falls, at just 120’. However, that bridge...

    It seems they didn’t want to exceed the RenCen height of 727’. Earlier releases were showing a 750’ tower height, which would have exceeded the Golden Gate. The length will still make it the...

    Interesting that the under clearance is only proposed to be 138’ in that drawing. I see that same drawing and height on the official website, so I have to believe that is accurate. But that all...

    I was really hoping for at least 815’. That would make it the tallest building in the Midwest outside of Chicago and Cleveland. There are a bunch of towers in the 750’ to 815’ range in other...

    Thanks for sharing.

    For the the tall-height hopefuls (myself included) it is disappointing to see their current rendering showing the tower similar in height to the Ally Tower. Obviously that is...

    In Washington State, every new drivers license is Real ID compliant (I.e. the default). There is no opting for the lesser version. Probably a pain to implement initially, but maybe long term the...

    I think this project is (obviously) one of many that shows the ability to build new residential units profitably is no longer there. This is bothersome for several reasons:

    If you look at the prices the downtown hotels are currently charging, or look at their occupancy rates, it is easy to see that currently hotel demand exceeds supply. This is no surprise when Detroit...

    So, general question for the board:

    While I wish her (and everyone) the best of health in the years to come, the truth is Marion Illitch is 86 years old. At some point in the not too distant...

    In the most recent video, it looks like the foundation for the second crane is starting to get dug and prepared towards the north side of the pit.

    And that is the issue. I don’t blame the “Johnny” in your example one bit for the horribly unfortunate situation he is raised in. I think society has to shoulder some of that blame as well. And...

    Actually, the government didn’t write a check. It was tax incentives where basically the government agreed to forgo collecting taxes in the near future on something for some period of time. The key...
