Friend of the podcast Robin Runyan from Urbanize Detroit joins us to talk all things development – and a little Miguel Cabrera.

02:40 – The building with a collapsed wall at Russell and Winder will be saved, and the businesses will be able to get their stuff out – which is huge and may save some of them.

04:20 – East Warren has a series of developments happening. We discuss a lot of what’s going on:

07:32 – We discuss The Perennial – apartments and townhouses on the higher end of the rental options in Detroit. Are you up for a townhouse north of $7,000 a month? If you’re moving into these, we’d love to hear from you because many listeners can not figure out who is. One problem is that it costs the same to build in Boston as it does in Detroit, but people can pay a lot higher rents in Boston..

13:36 – The old St. Patrick’s church in Midtown was demolished by the Archdiocese. We talk about the missed opportunities to creatively reuse spaces like this.

18:10 – We talk about steps forward on the $3 billion MSU/Henry Ford Health/Wayne State University development in New Center

21:39 – The Henry Street gets a loan from the state

23:44 – Is the University of Michigan Center of Innovation going to actually happen? Confidence is dropping as the time ticks away and the university hasn’t approved the development and there’s $100m in state funding in the balance. Will this vaunted project quietly vanish off the board? 

We covered a lot of stories – leave your feedback 313-789-3211 or email us dailydetroit -at- gmail -dot- com
