Lights On, Nobody’s Home. . .Yet

Living in GCP I notice little changes going on. The other day I was walking by the David Whitney Building at 1553 Woodward at the corner of Park and there was movement afoot. Four or five construction trucks were parked outside and, after doing a little investigation, I discovered that they are turning on the juice. They were electricians working on turning the lights on. I was told that the owner, Charles Becker of Omnipoint Communications/Becker Ventures was in town this week from Florida and is seeking partners to renovate this magnificent building into residential/commercial space. There are fifteen different buildings in Grand Circus Park and, except for the Kales, the Whitney is my favorite one. Haven’t seen anything in the media yet but I hope this is true. It would be a huge step forward in the revitalization of the D’.
