    Meanwhile, I'm still wondering about all the vacant skyscrapers in downtown Detroit to start with. And even the Penobscot is only 50% occupied. Sigh.

    Huh? of all the skyscrapers downtown yes the penobscot is at 50%, that's due to a garbage landlord owner.

    Class A office space is at 90-100% leased. The book and stott are undergoing renovations as we speak. There are no truly abandoned skyscrapers in downtown anymore

    Maybe they can add a 'sky slide' to the top!

    Jose Saramago wrote an excellent novel about a place like that too.

    I Trumpet; "The Ruins have been restored!"

    Woe, woe, woe to those who stay without remorse as the dead and the damned walk amongst the living on Earth. All around us we can smell the flower of their flesh decayed, yet we think to ourselves; "oh how nice a flower, but how putrid the smell. Let me take the flower's seeds to new lands, so that all lands can be infected by the honey of her misdeeds".

    Evolution has a counterpart.

    I'm hoping that they setup a live site camera like District Detroit did for the LCA construction. Anyone heard anything about them possibly doing that?

    Will the 80 story building be built on top of the steel beams that are already protruding from the ground or would the beams be removed all together?

    The beams were only built to support 18-20 storeys so they will be ripped out along with the underground parking, to be replaced with new parking also.

    I'm working on the project. I'll snap some pictures over the next few years and post them. It's gong to be a fun project to be a part of.

    This project is going to be nuts. Feels like just yesterday the "What's going on at the Red Wings Arena" thread just started and here we are, at the start of another massive project.

    Noticed they tore down the structures that housed the stairwells and elevator shafts this week. Excited to see this site transform.

    Yes, I'm eagerly awaiting the promised "80 floor building", which, so far, is nothing but talk.

    Bring it on, ye downtown starry-eyed optimists.

    I especially appreciate how the building gets 10 floors taller with every breathless "news story". At 80 floors, given modern day office heights, we're now looking at something taller than the Empire State Building, supposedly being built by a guy who has never built something outside of a taxpayer funded parking lot.

    They're already workers on site. You're clueless

    Bham, I understand your comments about the height being exaggerated, but do you really think this building is not going to be built? Barring an economic catastrophe, this is a done deal.

    Both Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center were built during the worst recession in US history.

    WTF?

    For someone who flies off the handle at Fake News that fits their own agenda you sure can spew out a load of it.

    What the hell happened? Tough going on your “Nobody wants a condo at the Book Cadillac” anymore so it was time to make up some other negative Detroit lie and start peddling it?

    You have one big problem with your latest fabrication.

    A majority of the people on this board can go to the Hudson site and see with their own eyes what is happening there now.
