Major League Soccer expansion fee increase won't faze Gores-Gilbert bid
http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...-gores-gilbert

MLS-to-Detroit group expecting to get some clarity soon
http://www.freep.com/story/sports/20...tiot/87747532/

Quote:
The group should receive a clarified timetable on its MLS expansion process soon. And Tellem says that the commitment remains to build a soccer stadium at the unfinished Wayne County jail site on Gratiot near Greektown.

“We need to have, under the MLS guidelines, the site in the heart of downtown,” Tellem said. “The successful franchises have all had stadiums in the core of a city, and the most recent developments where teams have built new stadiums, they’ve all been downtown.

“The jail site is, by far, the best site because it’s at the entryway to the city. It’s near all the other developments of the other stadiums. You can walk to Midtown, downtown and be in the heart of the city, and we want people to be able to walk to the game. That’s part of the environment we’re trying to create.”

Tellem said there is an ongoing analysis of the site that should be concluded by early fall.

“Dan’s team has really taken the lead in that, and we’re supporting them,” Tellem said. “It’s a detailed analysis on the viability of having it there and, obviously, cost is a significant part, and also the cost of having the jail someplace else. So I guess it’s a dual analysis.”
Tom Gores: We're not married to jail site for MLS in Detroit
http://www.freep.com/story/sports/20...-fee/87938502/

Quote:
But Gores told the Free Press on Friday: “Dan is working on it. We’re not married to (the jail site). What we’re married to is getting another sports team in Detroit.

“We think a soccer franchise in Detroit could be really good. And I think we’re going to get it there, one way or another.”
Back in April, Gilbert said there was no “Plan B” for the soccer stadium but now it sounds like they'll look at other options if the jail site doesn't pan out. It's good to see them fully committed to bringing an MLS team to Detroit.

As for the proposed MLS soccer stadium by Tom Gores, owner of the Detroit Pistons, and Dan Gilbert, founder and chairman of Quicken Loans Inc. and owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources say the project team is still working to build the stadium at the unfinished Wayne County Jail site at I-375 and Gratiot Avenue. The stadium, which may be complemented by three midrise towers (hotel, office, residential), retail, restaurants, and parking, would also likely including the moving of the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice and other neighboring court facilities.

The jail and court system could be moved to the Mound Road Correctional Facility on Detroit’s east side at Davison and Mound, the former train station at Michigan Avenue and 14th Street, or the twin offices towers formerly occupied by the state of Michigan at the Lodge Freeway and Howard Street (immediately north of the Greyhound Bus Station).
If everything goes according to plan, they should break ground some time next year. I'm hearing they want the stadium finished by 2020.

Might be the straw that breaks the camels back to help the county move the courthouse and the unfinished jail. Keep that sh*t away from the Michigan Central Station building tho. Develop that into a hotel or back into a train station. Too pretty and historical a building to replace with a jail.

Cullen predicts Pistons will move downtown, MLS stadium will be built

http://www.crainsdetroit.com/article...-will-be-built

Quote:
Less well-known is the fate of the MLS stadium, which is planned by Gores and Gilbert for the site of the half-built Wayne County Consolidated Jail project at Gratiot Avenue and I-375. The mixed-use development would cost about $1 billion and include three 18- to 28-story towers for residential, office and hotel uses.

Wednesday, Wayne County announced that a structural analysis completed by Detroit-based Mannik & Smith Group Inc. found no structural concerns on the jail, which has sat languishing for 3½ years.

County Executive Warren Evans said the county will consider no other options for the jail site once an expected request for proposals is issued in January for a design/build firm to complete construction on the project, which has to date cost the county about $151 million.

Detroit still on Major League Soccer’s radar

This week, representatives of the MLS said there is an announcement coming soon, but it won’t be this week.

MLS commissioner Don Garber, ahead of this weekend’s championship match in Toronto between Toronto FC and the Seattle Sounders, will bring up the league’s effort to expand by four teams, to 28, on Friday in a news conference.
Article goes into talking about other cities trying to get a team themselves and speaks about Detroit City FC influence as well.

Alright Detroit! All it takes is $150 million entry fee and the application has to be in by January 31, 2017. It's time to get the ball rolling. Pun intended.

That's peanuts for Gilbert/Gores (worth over $8 billion). The only thing stalling this project is the jail site is still in play. From what I've heard, negotiations are ongoing and they won't move on to another site until it gets resolved.

“Our view of Detroit remains the same,” Courtemache explained. “We were very impressed with the market when we visited. We’ve had discussions with Arn Tellem, and Dan Gilbert’s executive staff since our visit.

“We know they’re working on a stadium plan and we look forward to more details as they develop.”
Quote:
Garber said the efforts of Gores and Tellem — whom Garber calls a close friend — to move the Pistons from Auburn Hills back to downtown Detroit, have stood out to him.

Detroit's best chance at getting announced into the league this year might hinge on the Beckham/Miami deal no going through. I get the feeling that Sacramento and St. Louis might be the next 2. I could be wrong.

If MLS is eventually coming to Detroit, investors/owners might need a new stadium site:

St. Louis might have hit a roadblock on the way to an MLS franchise as the new governor is against public money going toward a new stadium.

A lot of cities hoping for the Miami and St. Louis bids to tank.

Plans to relocate Wayne County's new jail to make way for a soccer stadium appear to be dying as the county announced today that it will try to restart the long-stalled construction project at Gratiot and St. Antoine near Greektown.
