Success! Pontiac Silverdome implodes in a cloud of dust in 2nd attempt

The second time's a charm.

Crews tried once again to demolish the upper ring of the Pontiac Silverdome on Monday afternoon after Sunday's failure, and this time they succeeded, or at least made progress.

New $31 million condo complex planned for downtown Rochester, developers want input

Natalie Broda
The Oakland Press
May 24, 2017



A new condominium complex is in the planning stages for downtown Rochester and its developers are looking for community input on the project.

412 Water, named after its location downtown, will consist of three, four-story buildings with about 14 units per building and enclosed parking on the first floor. The approximately $31 million development is intended to serve an upscale market of buyers, a population that according to Joe Salome, partner with Grandview Building Inc., is currently underserved in Rochester.

Thanks for this thread idea. But bear in mind that Flint and Ann Arbor both have dedicated threads already and updates for these regions should be posted there.

$80 million condo project springs to life in Birmingham

Jay Grossman
hometownlife.com
October 19, 2017



Location, luxury and lots of money are the key components in the $80 million Brookside Terrace development going up on North Old Woodward in downtown Birmingham.

The five-story building overlooks the Rouge River and will include 28 condominium units that start at $1.7 million – or north of $875 per square foot. Developer Matt Shiffman said there’s nothing comparable in the Michigan marketplace in terms of price and polish.

Detroit Zoo to build $10M Great Lakes Nature Center in Macomb County

Bill Laitner and Christina Hall
Detroit Free Press
February 13, 2018



The Detroit Zoo’s director stood beside Macomb County leaders Tuesday to announce that within a year the zoo would begin construction of “a world-class freshwater nature center” at a site yet to be chosen in the county.

The new Great Lakes Nature Center is to cost “at least $10 million” and to house “at least 20,000 square feet” of aquariums, animal habitats and displays on the science and ecology of the lakes, Detroit Zoo CEO Ron Kagan said.

Edit sorry the story is from 2015 but there was never any more information put out on the project that I could find even though phases 1 & 2 are complete, perhaps they didn't want to let anyone know how plain looking they were making the buildings.

I got one it's right down the street from me considering I see it every day figured i'd add it in. Back in 2015 Google signed a lease at an office building on the s.w. corner of 12 mile and Farmington for a call center. At the same time on the opposite side of Farmington Road the city was apparently about to condemn the h.q. of a former insurance. The site it was subsequently torn down and has already been replaced by a Courtyard Marriott and a Holiday Inn which just opened. Site prep for the 3rd hotel unnamed as of 2015 is progressing with construction to most likely start soon.

BTW there have been new 7 hotels counting this 3rd which work is starting on now that have been built in or on the border of F.H. in the past 2-3 years there is one at 14 mile and Orchard Lake in West Bloomfield and one at 14 and Haggerty in Commerce Twp.

3 hotels planned for office park in Farmington Hills

Blueprints of the three proposed hotels. The far right hotel would be a Courtyard by Marriott and built first. The middle hotel would be a Holiday Inn and built second. The third hotel may then follow. (Photo: Provided by City of Farmington Hills)




The former Farmington Hills headquarters of what was Alexander Hamilton Life Insurance...

The Hamilton building had a handful of office tenants after the insurance workers left and was eventually condemned by the city. Today six weathered statues of lions stand sentinel over its former entrance gates.

Link to PDF report on health of Metro Detroit hotel market its from last year but using the most current data from then it explains why they expect the boom to continue as a healthy market continues to successfully absorb new rooms coming online. -
