I believe they've already signed a gourmet market and pet store for some of the retail, and are in the process of signing some restaurants.

    Hudson Block | 800 Feet & 58 Stories

    Almost over...(photos from Kirk Pinho): This means we'll likely see grading of the site and cleaning out of the tub start next month, which may put them ahead of schedule of drilling/driving of piles and concrete pours for the foundation, which were scheduled to start in the Fall.

    Chemical Bank Headquarters

    Early renderings show a building as ugly as sin that they will hopefully revise, but Chemical Bank is moving its headquarters from Midland to Foxtown in Downtown Detroit. Tanya Moutzalias | MLive.com The 20-story tower will not only be home to Chemical Bank, but have luxury condos, parking and retail. It's tentatively scheduled for a 2-and-a-half-year construction. To better place this, it's a block from Little Caesars new headquarters. The District Detroit

    Fitzgerald Revitalization Project - Northwest Detroit

    Yes, it was a very sloppy story in which they created a "problem." It's crazy to me how detailed the story was, and how little it actually addressed any major problems. It was this huge investigative story and the conclusion is basically "A complicated project with hundreds of different pieces spread over an entire city neighborhood didn't go exactly as planned." Well, no sh%t, Sherlock. That's the story?
  12. This was revealed a few weeks, ago, but it appears the city has now formally announced the plans and its details for this expansion project in Lafayette Park immediately east of downtown. They expect to break ground early next year and be completed by the end of 2020.
  13. An interesting project is taking place in the Fitzgerald neighborhood in northwest Detroit. The neighborhood includes Marygrove College and is just west of University of Detroit.
