^Now that the problem of the riverwalk gap at the riverfront towers is going to be fixed with the pier style promenade bypassing the towers i hope to see something that isn't just geared to make money for the former bondholders. With how successful the riverwalk has been it would be a shame to have a gated condo highrise(s). It makes me a little nervous hearing "deadzone" so many times in the article, not easy to access yea but deadzone not quite.

Historic Detroit Club eyes January reopening after renovation

The Detroit Club in downtown Detroit is poised for a comeback three years after a flood destroyed its interior.

The historic 40,000-square-foot building at 712 Cass Ave. at Fort Street is about 95 percent of the way through a multimillion-dollar overhaul by its owners, husband and wife Emre and Lynn Uralli.

The four-story club will be semi-private, with each floor and a basement fully renovated, said Regina Peter, director of sales and marketing for the Detroit Club. The club hopes to open in time for the North American International Auto Show at nearby Cobo Center in January.

"We really wanted to bring elements to the city that are missing," she said. "It was very important to the owner to allow Detroiters to experience the building."

The exact investment in the project was not disclosed. Uralli's Citi Investment Group Corp. is the general contractor and Lynn Uralli took the lead on the building's design.

The first floor of the building will have a 64-seat restaurant open to the public and a separate member's lounge. The second floor will have a ballroom accommodating 120 guests, while the third floor will house a 150-person dining room.
