    Sherwood Forest apples-to-apples is clearly more desirable than University District (and Green Acres) , though University District is a bit more walkable/urban, given its an older, slightly closer-in...

    I find it hilarious that he actually tried to answer the question, rather than admit the obvious - one has absolutely nothing to do with the other, but DYes is full of transit fanboys (except for...

    What does a train to an airport have to do with a convention at Cobo?

    Bobby Schostak bought it. Almost certainly will be torn down for auto logistics or supplier space.

    Midtown is a new name. The fact that you can find a theater named "Midtown" has nothing to do with whether that neighborhood had such a moniker in previous decades.

    The building is just fine. It's basically the nicest (to be fair, practically only) new construction residential addition to downtown proper since Millender Center.

    Pretty sure they aren't. 20-somethings aren't expected to buy 4,000 sq ft. homes. No one buys such homes until they have kids.

    McMansion developers have been making gobs of money in recent years...

    DTLA is pretty weak. I would rank it a bit above DT Detroit, but just a bit. LA is a great city, but not downtown.

    Tokyo has horrible built form and is hideous. It looks like a much uglier, less dense version of Mexico City or Sao Paulo. This is typical core Tokyo (in an affluent residential neighborhood, no...

    What traveler? On what basis do you surmise that Amtrak travelers in Michigan are itching to travel further on Via Rail in Ontario?

    It's an odd argument, because Amtrak doesn't carry many...

    Americans, generally speaking, don't want to be poorer and renters for life in bleak commieblock apartments in exchange for better transit and free college.

    If you want buses running every 10...

    ...said no architect critic, knowledgeable design person, or major property owner, ever.

    You're like the Dotard of Detroit boosterism. Just take the exact opposite everything you say, confidently...

    Ross has built two sizable projects in Metro Detroit. (disclaimer- If you're a downtown booster, probably should stop reading now).

    Ross' firm built the Palladium complex in downtown Birmingham,...

    You do realize that SHoP does actually have developments built all over the U.S., right? And they haven't actually built a thing in Metro Detroit.

    I have no idea who Schmidt Hammer Lassen is, and...

    There are tons. 11 Madison, 1 Hanson Place, 195 Broadway, Equitable Bldg., Waldorf Astoria, Hearst Tower, One Wall St.

    One Wall is probably my favorite prewar building entrance/lobby anywhere....

    Germany also has sky high gas prices, a difficult/expensive driver licensing process, and around twice the level of federal taxation. They also have very low homeownership, worse air quality and...
  18. Not true. Cleveland has four train lines,...

    Not true. Cleveland has four train lines, including a heavy rail line. It's trains serve the "favored quarter" due east, analagous to Woodward in Oakland. They even have heavy rail directly to the...

    There is nothing in the Bible that indicates a private vendor should not perform a service for someone who is gay, nor is there anything about whether gay folks should (or shouldn't) have equal...

    It's amazing to me that people believe that theaters would never be renovated or stadia would never be built if it weren't for the Illitches. Bizarre.

    Comerica is an average park, at best. Nothing...

    That's a horrible example. That scumbag is a hero to the gay haters, and it's very sad the the SC determined that private businesses have a right to deny services to gay people.

    What you're really...

    Just to be clear, SMART was "taken away" by Bloomfield Hills, a few years ago. Property values have since soared.

    Now, granted, I'm not arguing that property values soared because they took away...

    There's no evidence this would happen, especially in a region where employment isn't centralized, so there's little need for fixed routes. It's more likely that the increased property taxes on...

    I'm not aware of any gay folks who advocate a "campaign of hate". Are you referring to Neo Nazis and the like who want to kill gay folks? Those folks deserve no "tolerance" from any civilized person.

    No, those "studies" are the same as the stadium and Qline "studies". They conflate correlation and causation. Property values were soaring on Woodward prior to the Qline announcement, yet curiously...
