  1. I met Matt Woods on a streetcar tour in Portland a couple of months ago. He is very excited about the Cincinnati streetcar and how it will pass so close to his business.
  2. Yes, one of the articles I read says this is the first of 3 phases for the site. That parking structure with the pool they plan to build will have 327 parking spaces so it will eventually serve all 3 buildings.
  3. That wasn't the only 11-story Short North proposal to be scaled down today :-(
  4. I hear they want to break ground on this in 2023 when their two High Street buildings are nearing completion. Pretty ambitious!
  5. What 2-story building? The one shown replaced by the hotel? That is going to be demolished no matter what.
  6. Wayne and Garth have a nice town! I really like the Leland

    Check out that compact car
  9. Very detailed update of this huge project! One question. Maybe it was answered in your post but I didn't see it. That section where the tunnel is being built under the 3 roads. What is going on top of the tunnel? Will it be a cap that is strong enough to build on top of? Or a long, narrow park maybe?
  10. Yeah, Detroit hasn't become a model city or anything, but it is doing much better than just a few years ago. Mostly Downtown, Midtown, and Corktown are seeing investment. Those are 3 small pieces of a huge city, but you have to start somewhere. Anyway so many of these once abandoned downtown buildings have been bought by Dan Gilbert. In fact just a few days ago it was announced he bought Book Tower, one of the last major abandoned buildings downtown. Book Tower Sells to Dan Gilbert for $30 Million
  11. I stopped by Detroit a week ago. Unfortunately I was only there about an hour so I didn't get to see a lot, but there is actually a lot of activity in and around downtown, so I'll post the few shots I have. This is the Grand Army of the Republic building. It was recently restored with a street level restaurant and upper level offices.

Just recently a New York developer bought it and plans to turn it into a hotel Wurlitzer Building by Brandon Bartoszek, on Flickr The Ransom Gillis House is a long abandoned Brush Park landmark. It is now being restored. Look for a show on HGTV in November named Rehab Addict. Apparently this season will all be about this house.

  12. Looks like a pretty good size for the location. The sun shining from so far north is a little worrying though.
  13. Some great stuff! That spherical fountain reminds me of a dandelion.
