I heard they are building the Downtown HQ AND rebuilding all dilapited Detroit neighborhoods through 50 year interest free loans. And they are bringing in 500,000 new residents to live in the new Rock Subdivisions (May as well go big if we are making stuff up)

Don't forget,

The Ilitch's secured a $350,000,000 loan and gave the cash to the city to pay our debts and keep us out of receivership.

The City of Detroit doesn't have to pay the loan back. It will be paid back through Motor City Casino profits.

The catch on the 50 story Rock Tower is that 49 floors are for parking.

I heard Macy's and Nordstrom will anchor the first and second floor retail along with smaller stores like Bath & Body Works, Bananna Republic, The Gap and a Cheesecake Factory. Taubman will manage the retail portion of the building.

I heard that Microsoft is relocating their HQ from Washington State and all their employees to a new 100 story building to built Downtown. Additionally, they are funding the Book Cadillac and the Fort Shelby renovations for visiting business associates. Also, they are providing interest free loans through Rock Financial to any employee to relocates to the City Of Detroit, no Suburbs. I am surprised this is not in the paper???

Just in from CNN, L Brooks Patterson has requested that Oakland County become a part of the City of Detroit with Kwame in charge of the whole shootin match. However, the City Coucil has rejected the proposal.

Additionally, all the remaining Suburbs have unilaterally decided to pay 30% MORE for their City of Detroit water, just because they want to.

Miners working in the salt mines under the city have discovered a massive oil reserve larger than any known old reserve on the planet. Gas prices are expected to fall to under $1/gallon within 3 years as Detroit overtakes the Middle East as the world's largest oil producing region. Taxes on the oil expect to bring billions in revenue to the City and State of Michigan who own the mineral rights. Exxon-Texaco announce plans to build a new corporate headquarters building in downtown Detroit moving thousands of works here from Texas.
