    Felt like this quote from the latest Daily Detroit podcast summed this whole ordeal up nicely:

    “If you open up a building next to a Dan Gilbert development that’s a good thing. There’s more...

    Using the area code on shirts is not a new thing, nor was it invented by Detroit. But the "Cleveland vs. The World" stuff is a blatant ripoff.

    Do they still show off that fancy model with all the proposed buildings around LCA and Comerica?

    More concrete columns in place on the block portion of the site.

    There can not be very many caissons left to drill at this point.

    The Crain's paywall update is kind of interesting in itself. Since they broke the story, it's been clear that a lot of people saw the headline and couldn't read the article and assumed the city's...

    Around 23 seconds into yesterday's video, you can see a crane place what appears to be the first "vertical" (although subterranean) construction in the upper left corner.

    What are the odds the person commenting on all the Hudson's time lapses is just making stuff up? "I was told..." then offering some vague update like "the caissons went bad" or something has been...

    Be careful using WalletHub as a resource. It's a marketing company. Do we really think Grand Rapids and Toledo have more job prospects than Detroit? And Chicago is 142nd?

    Like I mentioned, the...

    I think there are big cultural differences between Detroit and Berlin, or at least that's the sense I got when I was there. Detroit just doesn't have a ton of people looking for 24 hour clubs,...

    Too bad we couldn't reallocate a fraction of the $36 million we spent on those tired Pure Michigan ads in 2019 into research before it was completely cut from the budget. However, I'd imagine they'd...

    They're decimated by injuries, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise, as the roster was constructed around injury-prone guys.

    The small sliver lining is their rookie Sekou Doumbouya has...

    I'd rather have ground floor retail than a near-empty lobby (like the RenCen) any day.

    That's what the JW/Ritz downtown LA is. They even share a lobby and pool.

    Based on Bedrock's track record, I doubt they'll be competing for Panera, Burger King, Andiamos, Zoup and others found in the RenCen

    1. Hudson Tower height, hotel partner and office tenant officially announced. First steel starts to rise in March.

    Interesting comparison (which has been mentioned here before), One Chicago Square is somewhat* similar to the tallest version of the Hudson's site renders; it's been a few months since they finished...

    And the Book Tower and Fischer Tower plans were scaled back by The Great Depression, not sure what that has to do with modern day Detroit. Every city in the world has their fair share of unrealized...

    ^People who want to work long hours to make $200K with no required prior experience want to work in that environment. It isn't for everyone, but it can be very lucrative.

    The rendering is slightly different and the massing image is very different. My guess is they are still trying to land a 1,000+ room hotel (which would allow for the 900ft. height), and will wait...
