    They're moving the barriers so they're no longer blocking the sidewalk. I'm not quite sure why they ever blocked the sidewalk to begin with, considering the goals of Gilbert to have a vibrant,...

    Thanks Hybridy!

    I like the new renderings much better than the previous ones. I count 19 floors. I think it's a great size for that location.

    ILKSGAMI, thanks so much for the information. It's the first real, interesting news we've had in this thread for a while :)

    I lived near the 10 and Dequindre K-Mart. We would drive further to go to the Meijer at 12 and Mound.

    I used to work at the K-Mart at Maple (15) and Livernois. It was terrible. The manager was...

    My best guess is that when you're a billionaire you go to where ever is the absolute best facility, and that happened to be in Chicago. The added privacy was probably a bonus too.

    After spending three months in Chicago, Gilbert has returned to his Detroit-area home.

    I don't think I'll address too many more of your posts, but the claim that they're "pushing dirt around" is completely and utterly false.

    For those of you that want to see what is actually...

    You're putting words into my mouth that I didn't say while at the same time disregarding all facts.

    I'm far from hallucinating, as I've been one of the people on this forum that has actually been...

    There are still parts of Monroe between Woodward and Farmer that are blocked off, but it is a huge improvement to have some of it unblocked.

    There's been a lot of progress on the site. I've documented that in my pictures I've shared and the Youtube channel that has daily timelapse videos.

    A large part of the early progress was...

    Gilbert has been renovating many existing buildings, which isn't as sexy as building new, but certainly is needed. Good point though, Gilbert can unlock his "I build stuff" achievement by completing...

    The Ilitch family has ZERO credibility when it comes to downtown development. The only thing they've managed to do was build taxpayer-funded arenas and they have kind-of built the new Pizza HQ, but...

    One example would be a few years back when we had a 70-80 million dollar surplus Patterson used it to lower taxes instead of sending it toward the roads. Low taxes are great, but not if our...

    I don't like the shenanigans of Woodward resigning and then unresigning, that was a stupid move from the start. However, I am happy with the choice for the new county executive. It was funny...

    Good points. I just got from Boston and I stayed in the North End neighborhood which consists of mostly 4-6 story buildings. It was extremely walkable and there was a ton of foot traffic. In fact,...

    I don't really believe that less density will mean more "sidewalk activation". But I do agree that something great is on the horizon and I'm excited to see what it will be.

    Also, I don't know if...

    I agree with this. I often go through Hart Plaza, but for the sole reason of getting to the Riverfront. Hart Plaza can either be a space for events, or it's a giant, decaying concrete jungle, and...
