Just when you were starting to forget the Bates Garage ever existed, there are hints of progress on the site it left behind. The Detroit Experience Factory Tweet-tipped us that the lot has been encircled with a tall, chain-link fence, possibly indicating something construction-related is on the way. Dan Gilbert has long envisioned filling the site with another new parking/retail development. The Downtown Development Authority agreed to sell Gilbert the site for $1.5M last summer, but only under the condition he redevelop it within 18 months. Presumably, that clock is still ticking.
