Old Bush Stadium in Indianapolis looks amazing. They hit a homerun with that project.
As far as stadiums go, Tiger Stadium had nothing unique or interesting about it. Even compared to other old stadiums. The most locals had wanted was preservation of the playfield (which is what these current proposals offer). Many could have cared less about the shell or having it converted into residential. At most, there was an attempt to make a section into a museum for memorabilia which is what locals saw as the more important aspects of the stadium.

Good to see this one finally get started, this removes the biggest vacant building in the area.

$28 million Strathmore Apartments project in Midtown Detroit moving forward

The $28 million renovation of the former Strathmore Hotel towering over Woodward Avenue in Detroit’s Midtown neighborhood is moving forward.

Midtown Detroit, Inc. president Sue Mosey told MLive in an email that the group leading the redevelopment has closed on a remediation loan, and lead and asbestos are currently being removed from the eight-floor building at 70 W. Alexandrine.
