The Quicken Tech Center Looks Very Afraid of Corktown

Dan Gilbert loves surrounding his downtown properties with colorful furniture, outdoor pianos, and other assorted kitsch. In the crime hotbed of Corktown, however, things aren't so lighthearted. Currently under construction, the new Quicken Loans Tech Center recently sprouted a spiked, outward-facing security fence capable of repelling elephant. Security is an understandable concern for a building designed to hold tons of sensitive computer equipment and data, but the fence sure does make the cement building look more prison-like than expected. Let's hope some added landscaping lightens the mood after construction finishes up in January.
