From my research, it looks like some random dude up in Pontiac who owns Auburn Collision and Service Center. The shell company is 1133 Griswold LLC.

I just noticed that Executive Plaza is listed as no longer available on Loopnet. Hopefully we'll be hearing about plans soon.

Also, scaffolding has been erected on the sidewalk outside 1133 Griswold. I have no idea if this is a sign of renovations or if they're trying to protect passersby from falling debris.

That page was last updated in 2012. Other Loopnet pages updated this year show it still very much for sale. I imagine with a property this large that there would be some rumors coming out if it were to be involved in a major sell.

Yeah, I realized that after posting and didn’t get around to updating it. My apologies.

I used to drive around downtown and midtown in 2004 and I am amazed how much has changed. I knew it would happen eventually, but I never expected it to explode with developments like it has. I can't even keep up with all the construction, renovations, new buildings, etc.

Crains on August 24th 2018 in an article stated, that development would be by the Platform group and would fill the whole block that's west of Fisher building. There is a rendering. 10 story building would be next to Fisher then 9 story building (that look much like 3rd and Grand structure) will fill the rest of the block. With delay of Baltimore station 2 and cancellation of one of the tech town projects I'm guessing this will be on hold for a few years.

I found the article and it just shows a 4 floor residential building. Not sure what you're talking about.





Can you provide a link for what you're referring to?

I’m not sure. There’s a diagram on page 32 that shows 10 floors, but all of the actual renderings don’t show that.

I have it saved on my phone but clueless how to attach it. I'm trying to educate myself how to make that happen. As luck would have it I cant find the image on any web site now either. I did send a request with image attached via twitter to Kirk pinho of Crains for an update. My twitter is @jimmcilreavy for better luck in viewing the rendering.

You need to upload it to a third party image hosting site then use it's URL to post here.

Anyways, the plans all seem purely conceptual at this point. If the building is built it could very well end up anywhere between 4-10 floors, give or take. The Platform has a lot on their plate and I personally don't see this moving forward anytime soon.
