TOM WALSH: The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy will acquire a prime 22-acre parcel of waterfront land, snapping into place another key piece of the 5-mile bridge-to-bridge redevelopment vision being driven by Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, General Motors
Corp., the Kresge Foundation and others.

...and they should eventually be able to get the CSX property, as the railroad has no possible use of it.

It's nice to see this piecing together. It's been years in coming, and it's one of those unarguably positive things. Taking back the riverfront for public use is unquestionably one of the most important projects the City of Detroit has undertaken in many years, and the Mayor has had a lot to do with the project's success so far.

How nice. Gannett won't let a Gannett paper reveal how much money it's getting for that property. And I'm sure the hiring freeze at the Gannett paper won't be lifted as a resulted of the millions it received for this otherwise derelict piece of land.
