On your Daily Detroit for Monday, April 22, we dig into a proposal to develop part of Palmer Park as “Palmer Square,” a mixed-use development featuring luxury condominium towers, “experiential retail” and futuristic architecture.

We recently aired an episode looking into the city’s nascent Detroit Exploration and Nature Center, which is being run out of the former golf course headquarters. The closed golf course figures to be ground zero for a lot of redevelopment proposals, but any such proposal is bound to face stiff opposition.

Also on the show:

  • We dive into the news that Baker College has abandoned its plans to build a new flagship campus in downtown Ferndale
  • I discuss some of the highlights of covering the New York International Auto Show
  • And the next episode of “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” will turn its focus to Ilitchville the District Detroit, another topic we’ve covered on this podcast. The episode airs at 10 p.m. Tuesday on HBO. Check out the teaser below.
