As we count down the final days of 2016, it’s time to look back on all that happened in Detroit development over this past year. For a while there, it seemed like there was a new development announcement every day. We’ve already looked forward to what we should see in 2017, and we feel like 2018 will be HUGE in Detroit. But before we get there, let’s see where we’ve been.
The Year Transit Failed…Again
Fans of Bus Rapid Transit and reliable public transportation options were disappointed yet again in Metro Detroit. The RTA vote failed in November, which means we have another two years to plan again. Will Macomb County be involved next time around? Can we plan better ways to get around the city? Will Metro Detroit ever pass a strong transit proposal? While we look forward to the M-1 Rail opening in early 2017, you can literally only get so far down Woodward.
