Exactly what I thought. Also, you could build another house in that big backyard and still have a decent space for a garden in each house.

I'd rather suggest building bungalow-style, anyway. More comfy space and fit for the elderly generation that won't look for houses with stairs.

What I like about it is the rather classical look, though I think they can improve that, too.

I also don't get the point of making such a tiny house when you have lots of grass around. Taxes maybe?

On previous page there is plan that shows that next to this tiny house they want to build another one.
This house is for people with low income, so i think it's cheaper to build such tiny house, and its cheaper to pay bills for this house than for 200m house.

not too impressed. Utterly forgettable architecture, although, granted, that is the norm everywhere. Some plazas that will be unoccupied for most of the year; these renders with hordes of happy strollers are beyond disingenuous. Oh, and the office building with a giant lobby facing what appears to be its entire street frontage. Yep, that's warm and inviting.

Surprised this hasn't been shown here yet.

Project website:

Bedrock to begin Hudson's site work in December

Quote:
Billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert's real estate development company is preparing to break ground in December on a 52-story skyscraper at the site of the former J.L. Hudson's department store in downtown Detroit, Bedrock LLC executives said Wednesday.
Bedrock CEO Jim Ketai and President Dan Mullen said the company is making plans to begin demolishing the existing four-story underground 1,100-space parking garage that was built after the old Hudson's building was imploded in 1998.

Bullshit, no other development in the country looks like this, you sound jealous.

Detroit can fool itself all it wants over the current development proposals for downtown.

I do not wish ill upon the city. I really don't. Because I believe that a high tide lifts all boats. And having worked in Detroit for a number of years makes it a place that I'd like to see succeed.

But just drop your Google Maps Guy onto any intersection just outside of downtown and you will see for yourself the devastation that is the reality of the city.

Like Here.

Or here.

Maybe here.

Or Here.

Even farther afield. (And yes, this was just a random choice on Google Maps.)

The point is that almost no other Midwestern city has acres of abandoned land just outside of downtown like Detroit does. In fact, I doubt any American city has this amount of devastation other than perhaps New Orleans in some areas.

The best thing Detroit can do is offer these vacant properties at a steep discount to developers but mostly to private citizens. Cheap land surrounding a revitalized downtown can spark development that will catapult Detroit right back into the 21st Century and help make it a desirable destination for families.

(OK, yes, the whole public school issue is a can of worms by itself.)

For real? That seems like one of the more "urban friendly" developments in North America recently. Good thing we have armchair urbanists to tell everyone all cities must look like medieval French towns or else nobody will ever like it.

^ agreed.

Also, I don't think anyonev here is "fooling oneslef" regarding the state of non-downtown Detroit when rejoicing at the view of the new downtown projects. We've got enough cerebral processing power for this IMO not even very demanding bit of multi-tasking.
