Downtown and Midtown are growing neighborhoods. Midtown is probably seeing more development than any area in the entire state. For all of Detroit's problems, its still the cultural and entertainment hub of Michigan. All roads lead there making it the most convenient place for Metro Detroiters. Besides that, Ilitch already controls all the land he needs to build on. Good luck pulling that off in the burbs unless he moved the team to some far out outer ring place which would go against everything the Ilitch family stands for and it would probably alienate many fans in the process.
