Rock Ventures and Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert has revealed he wants to continue developing downtown Detroit.
Adding to initial plans already in place, Gilbert spoke on Thursday, Mar. 29 to a crowd of stakeholders, business owners and residents. He used a 3-d presentation to showcase what he envisions for the city's future.
Expressing the importance of putting plans to real action, Gilbert discussed new ventures such as the addition of open air food markets and upgrades to Campus Martius, Grand Circus Park and Hart Plaza. Improvements will also include a boutique hotel and pedestrian median on Woodward leading to the riverfront.
While some ideas are currently being conceptualized, one can be expected sooner than later. An international design competition is currently underway to find a new use for the old Hudson's building on Woodward Avenue. The new project is slated to begin next year.
Are you excited about what's in store for downtown Detroit?

Facebook. How did we exist before it? How did you define ourselves, our relationships with friends and/or boyfriends? How did we let people know, on a large scale, that yes, you ate the four-day-old Chinese food, and now your head is in the toilet while you throw up everything you've consumed in the last 48 hours? How would we know that your two-year-old is officially potty-trained, but decided it should play with its shit one last time? How did we do it? Oh, we didn't. That's so sad for us.
Over-sharers, attention whores and braggers could not have asked for anything more awesome than the invention of Facebook. It's become the go-to for revealing oneself and maybe even tossing things in other people's face. But it's cool; everyone does it.
And if everyone does it, don't you owe it to yourself to maybe take advantage of Facebook in regards to getting the attention of your ex? If you're lucky enough to have parted ways amicably without any blocking done, why wouldn't you want to pull some "Look at me! Look at me! I'm so awesome without you!" action?
You'd be weird to NOT want to do such a childish thing.
HONG KONG (CNNMoney)
The India-based advertising agency that created artwork depicting women tied up in the back of a Ford has fired some of the employees responsible for the images.
The cartoonish drawings, produced by WPP unit JWT, were never part of a paid campaign. But they have struck a nerve as India institutes new rules to protect women following a series of high-profile gang rapes.
One of the images depicts Silvio Berlusconi, former prime minister of Italy, driving a Ford Figo with three tied-up women in the back. Another image depicts Paris Hilton driving a Figo with what's meant to be the three Kardashian sisters tied up in the back. A third image shows three male race-car drivers tied up in the back.
"After a thorough internal review, we have taken appropriate disciplinary action with those involved, which included the exit of employees at JWT," the company said in a statement. "These were necessary steps owing to the direct accountability of the concerned individuals as we work to ensure that both the right oversight and processes are strictly enforced so that this never happens again."
Deepa Sridhar, a spokesperson for JWT, declined to say how many employees had been fired. The ads were not published or seen by senior executives at WPP or Ford.
The incident has drawn apologies from all of the involved parties, including Ford.
"We deeply regret this incident and agree with our agency partners that it should have never happened," the automaker said earlier this week in a prepared statement. "The posters are contrary to the standards of professionalism and decency within Ford and our agency partners."
WPP also released a statement saying that it "deeply regret[s]" the existence of the "distasteful" posters.
Ford unveiled the Figo, a subcompact, in 2009 to be produced in India and exported to other Asian countries and Africa.
