Details are sparse, but it would appear as though Dan Gilbert is convening a meeting/gathering at the City Theatre this Thursday focusing on "Woodward Corridor Place-making and Retail Strategy." The guest list features several big players in new Detroit development, including Detroit Economic Growth Corporation prez George Jackson. Crain's is hearing that it's an unveiling of "Plans for a creative and distinctly Detroit development of Woodward Avenue retail and the activation of public spaces, sidewalks and streets along the corridor." Let's just hope it involves new renderings of the light rail—the two or three we've been using for the last year are getting pretty tiresome.
