Not to give any false hope to rumors, but I've been hearing a lot of rumblings about the purchase and redevelopment of Executive Plaza. Apparently, Holy Trinity Church shares a parking lot with Executive Plaza and the details are being worked out to move forward with a sale/redevelopment. Like I said, this could all just be rumored, but I have no reason to not trust my source.

Executive Plaza was listed for sale not too long ago. The sale includes four surface parking lots. I would not be surprised if it sold and an announcement for plans is on the way. Would be cool to reopen it as office space and build some residential mid rise/high rises on some of the parking lots.

I asked a journalist that covers this kind of stuff in Detroit to look into it. Hope it's true. I share the hope for redevelopment with low rise apartments to fill the parking lots. Wouldn't be shocked if Ford was involved.

Kirk Pinho from Detroit Crains is the reporter I reached out to. He definitely has been looking into based on a couple tweets he recently made. It appears that the property is still listed and was in fact updated to reflect the Ford purchase of the train station. No asking price was listed.

Crown Plaza Hotel is now on hold/canceled due to opposition within the city council.

Hudson tower is now over 900 feet tall. It's a city within a city.

YESSS! Not only is the Hudson tower bigger, 912 ft or 62 stories but so is the building next to it. The Podium or Block as it's known, is now 14 stories at 232 feet. This softens the gut punch that the second Crown Plaza tower being killed off by city council.

The documents recently released for the Hudson's development gave the Hudson block building a height of 240 feet at its highest point, so I'll use that in the list. The second Crowne Plaza tower seems to be more on hold than cancelled, but for now I'll eliminate it from the list.

Currently being renovated/renovations planned:
1. Book Tower-475ft
2. David Stott Building-437ft - should be opening within the next few months
3. Michigan Central Station-232ft
4. United Artists Building-230ft
5. Free Press Building-190ft
6. Metropolitan Building-183ft - December 2018 opening

Reopened since 2010:
1. David Broderick Tower-369ft
2. Book-Cadillac Hotel-349ft
3. David Whitney Building-272ft
4. Crowne Plaza Riverfront-262ft
5. Fort Shelby Hotel-242ft

New construction approved/underway/recently completed:
1. Hudson tower-912ft
2. One Monroe Avenue-536ft
3. Monroe Blocks b3-341 ft
4. Chemical Bank headquarters-20 floors
5 Hudson block: 240ft
6. Monroe Blocks a2-187ft
7. The Griswold-15 floors
8. Monroe Blocks b1-122ft

Rumored new construction:
1. Grand & Woodward tower- ~30 floors
2. Residential tower near Comerica Park
3. Hotel near LCA
4. Hotel on Hockeytown Cafe site

Still vacant without plans:
1. Executive Plaza-290ft
