freedomisntfree saidI am sorry for being a bit out of date with my info. The last time I saw something on the David Broderick Tower, it was when it was empty and up for sale. I am happy that someone took that historic skyscraper and restored it attracting tenants. That is awesome news From what I heard, the nearby David Stott Tower is fully occupied and a prime office address along with one of my very favorites in Detroit, the Guardian Building now there is a beautiful landmark skyscraper.
freedomisntfree saidOh I agree with you 100% about all three landmarks being saved and redeveloped. Detroit has such a large historic architectural inventory that could help be a potential cultural tourism drawing card in much the same way that Buffalo, Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia have successfully marketed their historic built environment.
roadbikeRob saidIf any historic landmarks in Detroit should be saved, it should be the Michigan Central Station and the 37 story David Broderick Tower downtown. Both those landmarks are facing a very uncertain future. Both would be easier and more cost effective to renovate and restore because they both don't cover such a vast space of land and their deterioration isn't quite as severe.
Agree, but I hope it's all three that can be brought back.
I'm personally working on a deal for the Michigan building over on Bagley, and it's not in terrible shape, but I'll be shocked if the buyer carries through on this.
Btw, David Broderick Tower looks great and from what I understand is 100% occupied.
Great potential here in what arguably could be the Paris of the West.
Really cool art deco building. Lot of activity downtown. This is all doable. What's difficult is Midtown on out a ways to 8 mile on the north.
Traffic was horrendous Friday afternoon getting from Dearborn over to Birmingham so some things are returning to normal.
I took my car enthusiast 19 yr old gym buddy with me and what surprised him was how friendly folks are in Detroit. Of course that might be my fault to an extent because I'll talk to anyone and do.
Royal Oak along Main St. Friday night was just jammed with people and the parking a nightmare.
