Came across this promo on the neighborhoods of Detroit. After the first couple of minutes yu get the idea, but there is another side to the neighborhoods other than the desolation you see and hear about.

Detroit really is getting grip!

Bedrock to begin Hudson's site work in December

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.

Linkedin, Adient and Microsoft are moving in downtown Detroit.

Demand in housing is getting very strong: http://www.detroitnews.com/story/new...oit/104928998/

"The partnership released the study, its third, in collaboration with Invest Detroit and Zimmerman/Volk Associates, Inc.

The study notes that the average rent in a multi-family building in the greater downtown area is $1,703 a month for 862-square-foot unit. The average price for a 1,273-square-foot unit for sale is $338,263.

Findings in the study include:

There is demand each year for 1,230 to 1,500 new market-rate rental and for-sale multi-family units, and an estimated demand for 414 to 512 affordable rental and for-sale multi-family units.

■Over the next five years, estimated demand for new market-rate rentals and for-sale multi-family units is 6,150 to more than 7,500 units. There will be a demand for 2,070 to more than 2,500 affordable units for rent or sale.

■Nearly 76 percent of units developed since 2014 were market-rate and 24 percent are affordable, or income-restricted units.

Nearly 7,400 new units have been proposed and are in the pipeline throughout the greater downtown area.

I don't know much about this town, was just curious to have a look here, but I am so happy for this city to recover from the crisis! It seems to have many jewels, and it certainly didn't deserve to fall apart like it did for few years!

Also, the new Little Caesars headquarters is also going up quickly. The pizza-shaped glass windows are supposed to be installed later this month.
