The David Whitney Building's announcement of impending renovations included a mention of the historic Globe Trading Company building. According to the Free press, the Roxbury Group will be spearheading renovations on that building as well, which are also scheduled to start in the next few days. Though the lonely, beautiful hulk near the riverfront spent decades performing a variety of industrial tasks, it now has a bright future as an "Outdoor Adventure and Discovery Center" for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Once complete, the new development will have a climbing wall, playscape, classrooms, and possibly an "interpretive forest."
