    Steel? I thought it was a wooden sticks build.

    Not at 8 stories, no. You can only do stick built up to 4 or 5 stories depending on the local government codes.

    I'm actually surprised that they are going with steel instead of concrete, though. The two basement parking will definitely be done in concrete, though, which is why I'm surprised to here about steel at all at this point in its construction.

    As MrChrome said, there is steel rising right now. I took this photo on July 13th. The steel is on the north end of the site along Park Avenue.City Club Apartments CBD Detroit by Nick Sortzi, on Flickr

    Here's a rendering I found from city club apartments website, I gotta say this looks way better and fits way nicer into gcp than i thought it would.. although some of it is probably being at 'night' with shiny lights everywhere but it actually looks really nice! looking forward to the final outcome

    It is way, way too small vertically for that space. It's going to look ridiculous.

    I think it should be taller too, but i don't think it's going to look 'ridiculous'. it is about the same height as the opera house, which is it's sister block across woodward.. and it is taller than the madison. also around the same height as the cambridge house apartments and the building housing the david klein gallery across washington. Should it have been taller? I agree yes, but I don't think it's as bad as we thought it would be. to each his/her own though I definitely see your argument

    Even if it was only 4-5 stories taller I think it'd be a big improvement. Having said that, it is what it is. We will just have to wait and see how it turns out. My hope would be that the current parking site fronting GCP of the UA Building will get built on, something in the 15-20 story range. I think once something is on that site, it will even out the park visually. Just a shame that the Statler couldn't hold on a few more years there.
