Let’s take a minute to think about adaptive reuse, specifically with schools. Last year we visited St. Vincent in Corktown, which has been converted to offices for small businesses. We’re keeping an eye on the Cooley Reuse Project, which hopes to convert Cooley High into a community space in northwest Detroit.
In January 2016, we told you about the new renovations happening at the GM Ren Center, including a giant LED screen covering the People Mover stop on Jefferson. Sorry if y’all were really excited about that. Crain’s is reporting that the exterior renovations, including the LED screen, are on hold for right now.
