It’s an odd position for Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan: He may not get his way.
Mayor Duggan appears to have gone too far when he tried to replace members of a historic commission with pro-development interests.
In one case, the mayor removed a beloved preservationist from the board, replacing her with an ex-DWSD employee who owes more than $15,000 in delinquent ] property taxes and water bills.
Some of Detroit’s most beautiful apartment buildings and hotels were built in the Cass Corridor and are beginning to see new life.
A crew working on the new Red Wings arena has begun to dig up the historic Hotel Park Avenue hotel even though demolition has not been approved.
During its last incarnation, the bar sold beer from urinals, and food came in a dog bowl.
The Red Wings want to replace the historic 91-year-old building with a loading dock.
After four decades of abandonment in the Cass Corridor, the crumbling James Scott Mansion appears to be on the verge of an ambitious makeover.
The end appears to be approaching for the historic building to make way for the new Red Wings arena and entertainment district.
Instead of becoming the next trendy spot for new Detroiters, the apartments will be rented to low-income workers because of strong efforts to combat gentrification.
