Book-Cadillac renovation deal nearly complete

Recommended Posts

There hasn't been any progress yet.

I remember hearing somewhere that there was going to be a press release regarding the B-C on October 18th.

Yeah, I think you read that wrong. The clean-up work is just finishing. Trust me, if an entire renovation had started and finished, you would have known. :)

Whoops, the headline at the link detroitfan gave says "Book-Cadillac renovation deal nearly complete", I thought it said that the renovation was nearly complete, I didn't see the deal part.

They've got a lot of cleanup work left to do. On many of the upper floors they have just torn down the walls and pushed them into a gigantic pile of debris in the center of the floor.

Lmichigan, I've never been to downtown Detroit in my life. Probably because I'm 17 and I don't have my license yet. I have always been really interested and kept up with what's happening in Detroit but have never been able to go there. When I get my license I plan on going to Detroit often.

So why don't you take the Smart Bus? $1.50 (or depending on whether or not you have to transfer $1.75) Oh and I'm not trying to rattle you, I'm genuinely curious.

I would have no idea where to go to get on the bus. That would be AWESOME though if I could. Not only that but my parents don't like the idea too much of me going to Detroit.

Wow, not even for a sporting event? Your in for a treat when you finally do make your way down there.

Gotta catch a game at CoPa. Hopefully the team will be better with Leyland at the helm, but nothing beats the skyline view.

Yes, I certainly relished that view but from the television screen. I've never actually been to a game. But just that view, that skyline that only we can lay claim to...

I was just wondering this evening in the parking lot of the Southfield/Evergreen Kroger how people can stand to look out of the windows of their homes or townhouses in the suburbs and see parking lots. In the city even though there are far too many parking lots for my taste, at least the retail is down the street, and around the corner. It's not running thoughtlessly right up to your front door.

Waking up and looking out of your window first thing in the morning and seeing a long succession of diagonal yellow lines on an asphalt surface...? Priceless.

I would love to live downtown too. I'm definately checking into it after college. Ann Arbor has been a place I have always wanted to live but if not there then I'll try for Detroit.

Thats why the second i finish college im leaving suburbia and looking for a place downtown. I cant stand it out here.
Yeah, you pretty much hit the nail on the head there. The suburbs, with few exceptions, just downright suck. I need to find a job so that I can afford to move downtown in May.

Have fun juggling LTU and a job that pays enough to live down there Allan. Im definitely not envious of that work load.
