Ok, I'm new to the site. Now when I take a trip downtown, I notice how there's so much life and development in the corridor near Cobo roughly, then it quickly tapers off on the other side of GCP significantly. Now I know we have the casinos, but wouldn't you folks rather have Quicken loans build somewhere in the old Chin Tiki neighborhood. this could be good for both the lower CC and GCP in the long term. Most of all, it will rad up of some of those pesky surface lots that populate that part of the CBD. Most of all, the movement of Quicken loans in that side of downtown may lead to even ore corporate development in that part? Hopefully, if Ilitch gives up that spot for a hockey arena, I want Quickens loans to build in that area. So what do you guys think? Should they move in this ara or the fairly valuable Hudson Block? This was just a thought. If it sounds obscured, please tell me.

Darn it, forgot Ilitch owns ALL of that land. Aw well.

Ideally, it is important to fully [re]develop one area before moving onto the next I would say. It gives the area a sense of enclosure and space and what not. Plus, the denser the developments, the more easily they can feed off of one another to make a complete neighborhood.

I don't think QuickenLoans is going to do anything.

Since Ilitch owns the land and might not want to sell, maybe the air rights are available?
