Actually it looks almost identical to the rendering. Your photo just shows the far wall that isn't seen in the rendering. (I agree that far wall is too ugly... cheap aluminum) Can you get a photo from the same angle as the rendering?

The only difference I can see is the actual building doesn't have the cool YMCA sign. (maybe just not put up yet?)

If Rock Financial decides to build downtown, Detroit will be on its way.

As is much of St. Aubin Marina


Construction continues on the rest:

Latest Greektown Casino rendering:


Let's just hope City Council doesn't vote against it claiming it is 30-stories too high.

small correction: We want quicken loans, not rock financial. Rock is a subsidiary of quicken.Supposedly they'll have a site selected in the next few months for anyone not in the loop (4,000 employees)

Good pictures, does anyone have any pictures of how the MotorCity Casino construction is looking like right now because I heard it was a good view coming from downtown on the Lodge?

the only view i got of it was from the lodge, so it was hard to snap a pic, but it looks as only the elevator shafts are rising

Detroit Forumer's List

Hey guys, sorry for getting off topic here but I was wondering if anybody would be interested in helping out with putting together a list of all the Detroit forumers so I can post it on the How many forumers do we have per city? thread I created on Skybar. I also need it so I know exactly how many of you forumers we have.

You can either post it yourself or you can send me a private message with the names and I'll post it.

Here is a link to the thread: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=103189

Thanks!

This evening (April 17, 2006). Motor City Casino as seen from northbound Lodge Freeway.


This will be a really cool effect coming up the freeway when the two ends are filled in and the building is topped out.

Sorry for the poor quality.

Oh and another thing...I just drove by the future site of the Port Authority Terminal...and...the freakin prominade is finished! lol Needless to say, I was shocked! It is still sectioned off though.
