    I could have been (stupidly) convinced that tearing down the Wurlitzer was a good idea back then. To see this entire area restored and transformed into a vibrant section of downtown has been incredible.

    I still lament the loss of the Lafayette Building. Just because it was just too near the restored Book Cadillac, and was still abandoned. It came down because it didn't look good next to the Book Cadillac... and yet the DEGC tried to convince us that it wasn't restorable... dumb dumb dumb.....

    A sad loss, as was the Statler.

    With the old cobrahead streetlights still in. We hadn't made it that far with our PLC reproductions (I led the design on this) throughout downtown.

    Detroit 10 years ago could not have supported two boutique hotels with rooms over $200 a night
