Motorcity Casino

I’m looking out my window tonight towards the west side of downtown right now, noticing how quickly the Motorcity Casino is going up. They’ve already got the stairwells built to the building’s height and it looks like the steel is being laid for the first five or six stories now. It’s really great to see something being built downtown at such a rapid pace. I can’t see the MGM tower yet, but Old Main is blocking my view (for now). It’s even more encouraging that most of this is being done with Union labor, as is the tradition here in Detroit.

In fact, I think Baliad was talking about this before, but I can see five cranes around downtown right now building lofts and casinos (mostly). The city still has a whole plethora of problems to overcome but hopefully this is a sign of confidence from businessmen (and women!).
