More of Woodward Avenue. The Lofts at Woodward, which is similar to Merchant's Row across the street was completed last year. It is on the far right.

The Lofts at Woodward is a great project, but unfortunately has not leased much, if any of the ground floor retail space. Luckily Merchant's Row has had more success in leasing commerical space.

Book Tower needs a bath! Fortunately it is getting one this year.

I still don't like the parking garage....hopefully they will apply details or something to it.

The Pepper's Shoes Building is not part of the Merchant's Row project, but hopefully development will follow soon.

Even more of Merchant's Row. This project is great for the city. Just 2 years ago this entire stretch of road was completely dead. Not anymore.

Here is what replaced Hudson's: the city's premier undergroung parking garage. The site sits, waiting to receive a 18-24 story building.

Some more of Lower Woodward Avenue. Thank God they did not tear it all down for urban renewal in the 70s!

Yeah...I don't even want to think of how the GCP area will look once they take the Statler down. The renovation of the Kales building is a step in the right direction, however. If only they could get the Book-Cadillac deal finalized....

Also if something could be done about the Broderick Tower & the Whitney Building it would make the area much better.
