Summary

1) Given the news of the demolition of Shapero Hall, what’s should we expect from the developments in Lafayette Park and the surrounding areas?

2) With Ford’s electric vehicle and autonomous vehicle teams relocating to a historic former factory in Corktown and the news of their acquisition of the mammoth Michigan Central Station, what should we expect to be announced?

3) Given Public-Private Partnerships like CNI have co-ordinated over $250 million of new investment and created nearly 750 new jobs, how can we drive more of this sustainable growth?

4) Now Canada has approved requests for the twin span Howe Bridge project, how have steel tariffs impacted development plans given a requirement is that the project is U.S. made? has now been granted? 

5) With the news of the loss of the MLS bid to Cincinnati being lost in the excitement for this years Detroit Grand Prix, could the raceway on Belle Isle be our focal investment?
