Dan Gilbert Confirms That "Kids" Love Their Downtowns

Dan Gilbert, "Downtown Detroit's Big Booster" had a chat with Atlantic Cities about his property buying addictions in downtown. Why'd ya do it, Dan?

Kids don’t leave suburban Detroit to go to suburban Chicago or suburban New York or suburban L.A. They’re going to the downtowns. Most of the activity and the kinds of areas and the companies that are attractive to people who are the best and brightest in our view want to be in the urban core. He did it for the kids! Now the third largest land owner in Detroit, will he run for Mayor? And is transit "back on track?" These and more in the extended interview.
