    Well the area that the arena would be located at( basically 90% of what you see in the picture has Intentionally NOT been developed and has been bought lot by lot over many years( by the same folks that built Comerica park) to then combine it all into the below idea. There's only a few orig buildings standing in this area ( two old hotels), This is on the edge of downtown and was never built up much at all, It was mostly residential " back in the day". The area north is midtown and has much development going on currently and the area south of the x way( bottom of the rendering is I-75) has all of the theaters and Comerica park and Ford field. Basically this fills a multi-block hole between downtown and midtown.
