Robin Runyan from Urbanize Detroit joins us today to give a bit of an update on development stories around town and answer a listener question.

  • Can the Belle Isle Boathouse be saved? We discuss.
  • We talk about what could be Detroit’s icon of incompletion, the long-stalled Perfecting Church project at Seven Mile and Woodward. There’s a new deal to get it going, but community (and our) skepticism after 20 years of lack of progress is high.
  • A pair of buildings in Corktown that have sat vacant for years have been sold, raising hopes they’d be redeveloped. Robin shares the details and we discuss.
  • A new affordable housing project kicks off in Southwest Detroit on Michigan Avenue.
  • Robin has three big development themes for 2023. We get into them and why they matter.
  • If you’re a listener who comes in from out of town, how do you get from the airport now to wherever you’re going?
  • And she answers a listener question.
