Thanks guys. As for Detroit looking dark, it's kind of creepy when you look down on the CBD, all the dark voids are actual buildings, which shows the city has a lot of work to do as far as attracting more businesses/residents. The city's time will come, just not yet.

I used to think that area needed tall building too, but it turns out they dont even want them. The residents actually made Greektown scale back its proposed casino because it would have been to tall.

Now, I actually like the idea of that part of the city having low/midrises only. I definately needs some infill to make it more walkable, but I think a tall building would be out of place.

Just imagine if they'd made Compuware just 5-10 more stories taller and rented out the additional space to other companies.  It would have been perfect.

I wish it would have been taller too. The city would be so much larger if Greektown was more built up. The Blue Cross Building wouldn't be so lone if there were more high-rises.

Yeah Greektown, Bricktown and Harmonie Park don't need to be high-rise districts. They are fine just the way they are. Some infill would be nice, and possibly some mid-rises like the new hotel, but they need to keep the feel. There is MORE than enough roof on the west of downtown that would make a good high-rise district.

I'm sure the leasing of apartments and lofts will pick up in this area sooner or later. I know there are a good deal of people who want to move into the downtown, but want to wait until the area gets a bit more developed. We are still at just the beginning of things. I hope to see some new buildings in GCP as well that are at least 15+ stories on the Statler and Tuller sites. I'm going to scream if those lots are gravel in 10 years.
