  1. There is a building being demolished on Woodward near Warren. I've heard all kinds of speculation as to what WSU is doing there but nothing confirmed. Here are pictures from a couple days ago.
  2. I meant to post this, the Free Press Building is a beauty. I regularly check the forum and go to take pictures in Detroit. I took so many pictures in the UP I didn't get to posting them but I will try to soon.
  3. Still no final decision on the fate of the Dog House, Bauman and Super Bad Buildings. http://www2.dothaneagle.com/dea/news/local/article/historic_preservation_commission_delays_vote_on_fate_of_downtown_building/153294/
  4. U-of-M Flint has shown some interest in restoring and using the Capitol Theatre. The catch? It would cost about $25 million. It's a long shot in my opinion but this would be HUGE for downtown Flint if it happened. http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2010/04/looking_at_new_life_for_landma.html
  5. The Guthrie Coke Building (Chestnut and Fourth Street, 1883) was sold for $1.2 million. Developer Bill Weyland wants to turn it into retail, office or other commercial uses on street level and 20 or more apartments on the upper three floors. http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20091202/BUSINESS/91202010/1003/Guthrie+Coke+Building+purchased+for+$1.2+million
  6. The tree in Campus Martius Park...
  7. In response to number 1, the facade of the Fine Arts Building/Adams Theatre was saved. I'm sure you know that Jim, but just to clarify for people that haven't been downtown in a while.
  8. In that last picture....what are those buildings being turned into?
  9. Where have all the Detroiters been? I feel like I'm the only one that has been posting lol

    My Tigers are in 1st place in the central, this year I'm actually going to make it out to a few games.
  11. I finally checked out the Dequindre Cut Greenway...
  12. Here is a little article about 6 projects that have been approved for brownfield tax credits. I'm glad to see the Forest Arms apartments on there. There was a big fire a while a back http://www.flickr.com/photos/vanessamiller/2247376485/ I'm surprised to see the that the Scott Castle (James Scott Mansion) will be turned into apartments and condo's. I figured it would just sit there and get demolished one day. http://www.flickr.com/photos/detroitderek/2281128266/ I'm curious to know what 7 building near Eastern Market are being turned into townhomes and apartments.

    Is anyone else loving this Chicago-Boston series?? I'm excited for game 7 tonight, I think Boston will win.
  15. Just trying to get some discussion going on the Indiana forum. What cities in Indiana have all you guys been to? For me it's Gary, Michigan City, Marion and Indianapolis.
  16. Yesterday I got back from a few days in Indianapolis. So I have all kinds of development, projects to show you guys. I'm excited about this one, this will be the JW Marriott. It's in a great location too. It will be opening in February 2011. Three Mass Ave 429 On the Park More to come, I have more pictures from my trip to upload
  17. 2 brothers got an ok from the city to renovate the GAR building and move their video production firm there. Hopefully this will actually happen in the near future. I thought it was supposed to be renovated a while back. http://www.freep.com/article/20090215/BUSI...owntown+Detroit
  18. No, but on wikipedia there is a picture taken of where the building once stood. If that helps any. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Amsterdam_Historic_District
  19. Would anyone happen to have a picture of or know the name of the building that stood at 425 York? It was part of the New Amsterdam Historic District and demolished by WSU.
  20. The Wayne Theatre we discussed on page 12 was demolished in September. I noticed the empty lot when I was driving through downtown Wayne today. Also, a building I took a picture of in downtown Wayne just over 3 years ago was demolished in September 2006. It is the 2 story building to the right of the Village Bar. http://www.journalgroup.com/Wayne/1117/his...s-wrecking-crew
  21. University of Detroit Mercy School of Law
