Dan Gilbert is expected to drop a development bomb on Brush Park later today. Details aren't confirmed yet, but it sounds like Gilbert is eyeballing the 8.5 acres of Brush Park offered up for residential development last year. That RFP required two big items:
1. Medium-density residential with a historical theme. Don't be surprised to see townhouses.
2. Rehabbing a few historic ruins on Alfred Street, including the Ransom Gillis House. Since Nicole Curtis of "Rehab Addict" already called dibs on Ransom Gillis, she may be involved with today's announcement as well.
We'll update after the press conference at noon. Original details of the RFP can be found here.
