Excellent pictures - Thanks.

I do think, however, they need to get a new sales manager for the Mid-Med Lofts. (And tell him to quit smoking around customers!)

The building pictured is not the loft building that houses Bureau Urban Living.... it is actually in the ground floor of the Canfield lofts a couple blocks west of the building shown.

Great tour. Even more exciting then all the core area development is all the stuff I am noticing in the neighborhoods every time I come home. Detroit is really rising people.

Great to see that there are this many developments going up. I have to say though, most of these buildings whether small apt buildings or casinos, are horribly ugly aesthetically. This is some of the poorest and cheapest looking architecture and design that I've seen in any major city.

Don't get me wrong, NYC is seeing crap like this too with "affordable" infill housing in parts of Brooklyn and Queens. For the Downtown area of Detroit though, I would hope that a little more thought could go into the design process.

Seeing pictures of anything being built in the city as compared to the lack of construction while I was there in the early 90s is a good sign overall though.
