    I sorta agree... but I wonder if part of the parking is for the displaced parking spaces taken away when Grand Park Centre's Annex (former Michigan Mutual Annex parking) is razed?

    It looks like there will be a TCF Bank along Woodward. Not sure about the Elizabeth side past the parking entry/exit. W. Elizabeth has a lot of dead space with the outer side wall of the Fillmore...

    I still lament the loss of the Lafayette Building. Just because it was just too near the restored Book Cadillac, and was still abandoned. It came down because it didn't look good next to the Book...

    Have you ever heard of Miss Dig? Every single caisson has been mapped out, likely in rows and columns, as though on a blueprint. I highly doubt they would drill and forget. ;)
