Too bad the Bastille's gone. It would have been within walking distance.

btw, anyone know what happened to the GM River East plans? There hasn't been any news on that one in over a year...

It is a very small plot between the two parks. Let's hope they go a little bit taller and put as many rowhouse units as possible along Atwater. Based on the deposits they've already gotten, they probably could.

Lets hope they don't as the idea is to have a low to mid rise walkable community. Adding more units simply takes away from units that can be built on other land nearby. There is a finite demand for the area and the taller and denser the developments the less land gets developed and the harder it is to develop a community.

100 units per acre would be ideal (ala Jane Jacobs), but the Watermark is about half that density.
Still 50/acre ain't bad. It more than most of Detroit.
