Visteon plans to open new plant in Highland Park

8 posts in this topic

I read this title, and thought my eyes must have been tricking me, but it looks as if Visteon is going to open a plant in Highland Park, a place that has been left for dead. This is going to be huge for Highland Park.

Visteon plans to open new plant in Highland Park

More auto supply jobs may not be what we're looking for, but ANYTHING to help HP, if only temporarily, is a good thing.

Love the comments on freep.com that express how much of a dump Detroit (Highland Park) is and then do a complete 360 and argue locating new facilities (leading to improvement) in such dumps. Is there something wrong w/ the people in SE Michigan that is a direct correlation between the state of the economy and the intelligence level here? Good grief!

I think it's wonderful and Chrysler should reestablish their HQ back in HP as well. That would show em!

Wow, you guys actually read those comments on the website?

I can't allow myself to do that. Anyway, any hope for HP is a great thing.

This is good news. Ive never been to HP, but ive heard(seen through pics, too) that it is really rough.

I hate the comments on freep.com, too. Really stupid stuff posted on there.

Michi, what did I tell you about reading those comments? Really, though, I stopped very early on. It's worse than anything that the constant naysaying trolls on even detroit.com can muster, with twice the immaturity level.

Those boards are beyond natsy any bad news about city seems to bring out a litany of racist comments and any good news ,like the recent coverage of Winter Blast, is treated as propaganda.

I know. LMich has permission to smack me upside the head first. The rest of you can get in line and then I will finish off by smacking myself upside the head! :)

Seriously though, I just get suckered into reading them sometimes because I want to see how stupid some people are.

I actually responded last in the Winter Blast one and have yet to get a reply. I bet 1/2 the time the people are lying about who they are anyway.

Anyway, I don't see how anyone has the right to criticize this. Everyone in Michigan is hurting no matter what your socioeconomic status.

Highland Park is 50/50 in my eyes, dtown. I've done some pretty extensive surveying there and while its "book cover" is pretty rough and easily judgemental, there are some really good neighborhood pockets, particularly on the east side that represent the good 50.

If you want to experience what America typically stereotypes all of Detroit as, just go anywhere around the Davison where it meets the Lodge on the lower west side of the city. That's where Project Orange is and literally the city is in ruins.
