These are definitely big victories for the city, especially for the Book-Cadillac. The hotel was the city's answer to the Waldorf-Astoria and it became one the ultimate symbols of our decline. Seeing pics like those if its devastated Grand Ballroom, Detroiters for years could only dream that the building would saved. Even after months of work I'm still awe of seeing actual construction taking place.
