I think we should have a sticky thread dedicated to all news and updates regarding the new arena

Edmonton has one on their board, It's pretty cool to watch their building go up.

It'll be great when this finally gets done...and it will eventually. Who figured something this big would go off without a hitch?

More plans from the arena district...

Deal for apartments by Comerica Park close
http://www.detroitnews.com/story/bus...park/26957499/
Quote:
The owner of the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings is close to finalizing a deal to make way for a five-story apartment complex a few steps from Comerica Park.

The structure, whose early plans called for up to 300 apartments, would be built on what are now surface parking lots along Woodward Avenue and Montcalm Street. The proposed building will be a few hundred yards from Comerica Park, across the street from the Fox Theatre and Hockeytown Cafe, and three blocks from the new home ice for the Red Wings. The hockey arena is expected to open in 2017.

Just tear the ****er down.

I understand keeping history intact, but what exactly are you keeping alive by leaving a decrepit building like that standing?

Detroit Politics brotha.

Hundreds of decrepit buildings in Detroit should have been tore down years ago.

I have a lot of optimism for Detroit's future. But Detroit is gonna Detroit.

It works like this. There is a historical ordinance that says we can hold up your project to preserve this Hotel. Unless of course you line our pockets, then all of a sudden that hotel just goes away.

One of those buildings (The Eddystone) is going to be renovated. Olympia was pressured into the project with obvious reassurances of a green light for the demolition of Park Avenue. It's politics for sure, but when public funds are being used, you have to play along with the politicians. That's how it works.

Here's a shot from the other side of the construction:

There was tons of angst over Tiger Stadium, even though there isn't much to be done with a baseball stadium, besides baseball, but I have a soft spot for the Michigan Central Station, although it's in no-mans land between Corktown and Mexicantown, but I have a soft spot for a lot of downtown's architecture.

And it's not like things can't reverse themselves with the right people, look at the Book Cadillac.

So I can see why there's a holdup, and it's not like Ilitch and Gilbert haven't profited from some of these same scratch my back, I'll scratch deals before. They don't buy up half of downtown for the fun of it, over devs are looking for their cut too.

Michigan Central Station is really the only vacant building in Detroit I wouldn't want to tear down.

That place is a beaut. However I understand it is unlikely to ever have a tenant ever again.

Relocate The Park, brick by brick, to the failed jail sight in Greek Town. That's more of an eyesore than any abandoned building (thanks, Bob Ficano!)
