Most of you have probably seen all these before. The links got deleted, so I've got to repost them. Don't worry, I have more that you haven't seen before.

The Lofts at Merchant's Row are under construction

Unfortunately the project also includes this rather tall parking structure. At least it appears to have ground floor retail.

Nice pics Allan. I noticed the monorail. How extensive is that form of transit?

That's the Detroit People Move. It's not very extensive. It was supposed to be the hub of a large regional system that never happened. Suburbs started pulling out of the project, until about the only city left was Detroit. The mayor at the time took the federal money he could get & built the system as it exists today, in the hopes that some day it could be expanded. Unfortunately that hasn't happened yet.
