    Walking by the future Nike store on grand river and Griswold I noticed this on the corner next to The Grind. Anyone know what's going on there?

    They are also in the process of taking down some of the statues on the Book Building for cleaning. Lots of change coming to downtown.

    That (and the tower) will be a beauty when it's restored!! However... Southen, I do love your one photo of the Book Tower in b/w detail. It has an almost terrifyingly spooky look to it. Great photo!!

    Tearing down a burnt out strip club and a vacant lot for new, ten-story apartment construction. Doesn't get much better than that.

    I already know I probably can't afford to live in 'em but that's okay.

    They're micro units...thus allegedly cheaper, but who knows

    Thanks Gistok! There is a beauty to the griminess but I am stoked to see it fully cleaned and with exterior lighting at night. The top being lit right now is great, but once they shine some lights on those columns it could be the focal point of the skyline at night. (assuming the Penobscot continues to look awful)

    It's probably going to take longer to get the equipment on site than knock that place down. I'd imagine it's gone in a day.

    There's a micro-unit building going up in Manhattan. The units average a little over 300 sq. ft. and rents start at $2900/mo. That's low rent. The units are constructed off-site and lifted into position by crane, like the Trolley and Millender apartments.

    I've been to NYC, as I'm sure many of you have. I loved it, but why on Earth would anyone pay $3000 a month to live in a shoe box? Yea, it's NYC, blah blah blah, but you could live in a penthouse in Detroit or a decent place in Chicago for that much.

    The answer is simple. NYC offers way more than Detroit and people recognize that and are willing to pay up. Hell why not ask why people don't choose Toledo over NYC? Even cheaper housing there....see my point?

    Just in terms of basics, will the units have bathrooms? toilet, shower, sink? Is there any kind of pantry area? what about cooking?

    I guess I should have clarified my comments, I just figured everyone would have omitted the overly obvious "there's a lot to do there" comment. The point wasn't to compare living in NYC to Wichita, because basically everywhere in this country has cheaper housing than NYC.

    I wanted to look at cities with a comparable social/cosmopolitan standing. My point was you can live in Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, etc, at that price point, and get wayyyyyy more bang for your buck, and there's plenty of stuff to do in those cities too. Yes, I understand that there are cheaper options in NYC if you want to live in a trash can for $1200 a month, I'm just going with that price point.


    And just so nobody bitches, I'll cite those comments with some legit info.

    Cool demo time lapse. I hope that water had bleach in it. Wouldn't want downtown covered in whatever came out of that dust plume....

    I didn't simply say there was more to do, I said NYC offers more but yes there is clearly more to do in NYC. At this point in my life there is no way I could live in a small and expensive apt in NYC but at the same time I completely understand why many choose to do so.

    Believe me, I agree with you. 21 year old me would say hell yea lets do it. 30 year old me says piss off with that noise.

    What do you mean by "offers more"? Are you referring to substance? Options?

    I'm referring to opportunity....specifically career opportunities, cultural opportunities and social opportunities.
