Providing Local News and Business Reviews Around Metro Detroit
Detroit's Skyline has more changes... More is in store for Downtown Detroit. This time as part of a new development proposal called The Mid that includes two high-rises — one 25 stories and another 30 stories — in yet another development that would reshape the city's skyline. The 30-story residential tower would be situated to the east, with about 250 apartments and first-floor retail space, plus parking.
FORD buys Detroit's Downtown Train Station
More great news for the City of Detroit. Ford has announced that it has purchased Detroit's abandoned and run-down Central Train Station. This 105 year old building will take 4 years to renovate. The site will create space for electric and autonomous vehicle testing and research and will also spur investment in the surrounding areas. The new center is expected to add as much as 5,000 new employees. Kudos to Ford.
The PGA Tour is coming to the City of Detroit! That's right golf fans, it is now official. The best golfers in the world will be returning to Michigan starting next year. Quicken Loans has been working diligently and has now succeeded in bringing "The National", previously played in Washington D.C., to the Detroit Metro Area. The Detroit Golf Club will host the PGA Tour under a four year contract starting in June 2019. The goal is to make the event last for one to two weeks an is expected to bring fans into the Detroit Area from all over the country.
Detroit's New QLine is not catching on! The new QLine has now been in service for almost a year and its daily usage is less than half of what analysts expected. Analysts were expecting about 5000 people to use Detroit's newest transit system but only around 2,700 people per day are riding on it. The transit leaders in Detroit are expecting these numbers to rise now that the weather is warming and the downtown area will see more people out and about. We will keep you posted on the QLines traction this spring and summer.
