    Groundbreaking now (re)scheduled for this Thursday, December 14, at 9am.

    Maybe if it snows enough on Wednesday, they can just shovel snow as opposed to shoveling the fake dirt they normally bring in for these type of ceremonial events.

    Link for the groundbreaking. Definitely recommend watching the video at 27:45.

    Edit: Found a separate link for just the video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6A6r1lZzvZ4

    First official rendering of how it will change our skyline

    Also found a few easter eggs in that video. Is Levi's close to striking a deal with Bedrock for downtown retail?



    Also Shinola looks as though they will indeed be opening a retail store on the ground floor of their hotel on woodward, not unexpected

    Nero thinks Sir Dan Gilbert and his band of merry folk do not understand how economic bubbles work. Be forewarned Dan Gilbert! For your lofty towers have hubris. All will end in capriccios contrition and disquietudes.

    Interesting that the renderings have changed once again.

    So they're going to force the Broderick Tower to light up its top? :P

    Judging by the second and third images, It looks like Woodward may be getting a make over as well. Maybe shrinking the sidewalk and adding a bike lane.

    Good looks UV ^^. Hope the QLine gets its own lane.

    Perhaps I've missed it, but have they announced a name yet?

    I think the Hudsons name should somehow be included in it .

    Gilbert said today they're holding off on a name until they know what corporate tenants will be there, i.e. in case someone takes up enough space to warrant their name as part of the building, but that he would like to see the Hudson name as part of it.

    Thanks for the info.

    Also Gilbert did note today according to Detroit News that there have been about 4 brand name companies that people know that have expressed high interest in leasing the majority of the office space, can't wait to see who gets it

    The video appears to be a tad bit dated since the Hudson's Block building appears to represent the last batch of renderings as opposed to todays. You can also see some of the new construction for Monroe Block but my favorite little egg was the now defunct MLS plans for the fail jail.

    You can see the stadium and corresponding towers in the top of the attached image. Sort of glad they won't be going with it. What I like about Hudson/Monroe is how they have broken up the blocks with the pedestrian in mind. Fail Jail looks like a super block which would have sucked.

    I agree southen, kind of glad they're not just plopping down another stadium super block as well. I hope they also break up the fail jail site with whatever bedrock decides to put on it. They've had a tremendous track record so far with pedestrian activation so I would imagine it will be done with that in mind.

    I hope one of them is Flagstar. That would be a major coup.

    When you have billions to throw into an all but dead city, you can exercise superstition and anecdotes.

    Go back to the drawing boards. This isn't unique or iconic. It doesn't stir the soul.

    Agreed..and..They could have left the old rock solid Hudson's building and built this somewhere else.

    It could end up as a new JACK CASINO... since the hotel and parking structure are just south of that site. I don't think that Dan Gilbert is happy with a 25% slice of the Detroit Casino pie at the Greektown site. He might build a new casino on the fail jail site, not sure if it requires 100% of the site.. but a decent portion of it, if he does indeed intend to build there. He would likely redevelop the old casino as other entertainments/retail. I think that former Trappers Alley is wasted as just a closed off entrance vestibule to the casino... although somethng other than the former festive marketplace concept would have to be found.

    GILBERT TOWER!!! It's got a nice ring to it. Gilberttown Detroit's first tallest skyscraper on 40 years. This will show the world that Detroit is alive and will. This is the true renaissance.

    Looking at the last picture, it almost appears that the public lookout on top of the building is cantilevered out over nothing. I'm wondering if this will be some sort of glass floor attraction like Willis Tower or that overlook at the Grand Canyon.
