Gilbert Poaches Olympia's Top Detroit Real Estate Professional

New, 4 comments

For the last couple years, Detroit real estate superhero Eric Larson has been the prez of Olympia Development, making him the Ilitch point-man for the new arena district they want so badly. But now we learn that Larson has suddenly jumped ship to join Bedrock Real Estate, the firm in charge of managing/enlarging Dan Gilbert's real estate holdings. Besides sending waves through our real estate fantasy league, this raises two major questions for us: How much competition/collusion is there between downtown's two property kingpins, and will we see Mike Ilitch write a bitter, Comic Sans farewell letter to his departing superstar?
