Whole Foods co-Chief Executive Walter Robb is scheduled to speak today at the Detroit Economic Club about the upcoming Detroit location, but don't expect him to announce the city has been officially saved... yet. The Free Press writes, "Midtown wouldn't yet qualify as a success story by revitalization standards in New York or Chicago. The 2-square-mile collection of smaller neighborhoods north of downtown still has vacancies and lacks the bustling, thriving feel of some of those larger cities' neighborhoods in transition." No shit? We thought we'd yuppified for sure! What if we add a yoga studio and an over-priced jeans store? Is there not enough coffee yet? We'll have six more of those shops too. Oh and residents. Can we get more residents? [Freep]
