In some cases this is good news there getting land to be developed but i was hoping for something bigger than some 5 story buildings but hey they are better than nothing at all.

Would you rather have 5 story buildings or vacant land/parking lots? I don't think we should be building anything real tall right on the riverfront anyway....look at the ren cen for example. The tall buildings should go in the core of downtown.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the riverwalk is east of downtown. So this is more of an infill to create a lowrise urban neighborhood. There are some towers planned though - Taubman's new tower, whatever goes on the Uniroyal site, Harbortown expansion, etc.
