I'd be interested in helping dust this thread off, or maybe just starting a fresh one, devoted to the entire Michigan / MBS bay region. It would primarily focus on the substantial Bay City, Saginaw, and Midland developments. Since this thread has been dead since 2013 (and after just 3 posts) are there any opposed to me just starting a clean, new one that can encompass more development?

Expansive construction in store for Midland

A lot of new construction and renovation projects are in the works this year in the city of Midland. Historically, funding for most construction projects are heavily funded by foundations in the community. Recent redevelopment efforts from the city, Momentum Midland and other local groups have focused on Midland's downtown...

Cities by the bay: Saginaw, Bay City back from the brink as downtowns rebound
Crain's Michigan Business: Saginaw/Bay City
April 8, 2018

Saginaw and Bay City have something in common with Mark Twain: Rumors of their death have turned out to be exaggerated. Like many mid-sized cities around the state 10 or 15 years ago, they seemed well on their way to becoming ghost towns. Downtown storefronts sat vacant. Movie theaters were shuttered. Parking lots were empty. Sidewalks went without walkers...
That was then...and now, there are cranes in these downtowns, tens of millions of dollars in investments, and actual demand for housing and commercial space. Exciting times in Michigan's beautiful Bay Region.

(but it need not be!)
