Legoland Discovery Center Michigan which is under construction and plans to open this spring in Auburn Hills, announced the top vote-getters for buildings to be included in the mega store's "miniland" display of Detroit buildings and landmarks. The plastic brick emporium's Facebook poll received over 1,100 votes from metro Detroiters, announcing the selections this week.
The structures to be rendered in the world-famous plastic bricks include GM Renaissance Center, Spirit of Detroit, Belle Isle Park, Motown Museum, Fox Theatre, Guardian Building, Comerica Park, Uniroyal Worlds Largest Tire, Michigan Central Station and The Heidelberg Project. While Lego-official versions have yet to be created, we're celebrating by offering this photograph of a Lego Guardian building constructed by metro Detroiter Jim Garrett. Worth 1000 words indeed.
