We all know LOVELAND Technologies as the minds behind the Why Don't We Own This? website and the Inchvesting scheme. What's the latest idea from these friendly provocateurs? Behold! Mt. Brewster, Detroit's first recreational snow hill!

As the highest point in Michigan, Mt Brewster would gain instant acclaim. Reserving the top floors of the Brewster Douglas towers for conversion into a public lodge, the project is a creative reuse of a historic structure if nothing else. While the proposal may not hold any realistic footing, it sure is an example of some out-of-the-box thinking.
