They've got a new banner up touting residential development. How convenient it arrived just before the auto show.

Probably just a ventilation stack for The Shit Stop.

There's still just one, right?

This morning is the long-awaited groundbreaking of the $53 million renovation of the Broderick Towers, the 34-story building in downtown Detroit's Grand Circus Park that's been mainly empty and decaying since 1985.

Many Detroit Tigers fans know the Broderick Towers, designed by Louis Kamper, as the big blighted building that can be seen from the seats inside Comerica Park.

If things go as planned, apartment dwellers within Broderick will be able to take advantage of the building's commanding view of Comerica Park. Plans call for 127 apartment units, including two-story units that may fetch up to $2,700 a month in rent, according to Motown Construction Partners LLC, which owns the building.

The low end would be $600-a-month studios.

The ground floor is set to be a sports bar. A group called Invest Detroit will set up shop on the second and third floors.

Good luck with that $2,700 a month rental.

Like the one that has been open only for Opening Days and has no heat, no name, and probably no liquor or food licenses?
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

There were a bunch of guys in hard hats standing around on the sidewalk this morning. I guess if I was going to stand around under the Broderick I'd want a hard hat too.

Dude, that was a joke.

I have an idea for a DeLaurentis style disaster film now, the Broderick tower begins to collapse after a fireworks display in Canada, and no one can get in to save the workers and their families, who were there to watch the fireworks, except a one eyed scrapper in prison. He gets let out but only if he saves the people in the building, you get the idea.
