The Olympics in Detroit and a Very Quick Sale in Palmer Woods

SOCHI— The Olympics are ON, which means we have to write about Detroit's olympic shortcomings. Back in the early 1960s, Detroit was trying very hard to score the '68 games, an effort which fell just short. Review the city's proposed venues and unbuilt arenas at Curbed.

BRUSH PARK—Just across Mack Avenue from Whole Foods, an old mansion is being repurposed as a new Jewish community center. The century-old building has some interesting architecture and plenty to explore. Curbed has the tour.

RIVERTOWN— Remember that colorful residential development planned for Rivertown? A tipster spotted the first signs that it's really happening, just seven months after its initial announcement. See the evidence and check out the renderings here.

PALMER WOODS— Sorry, but that Art Moderne estate the whole internet loved is long gone, selling after just three days on the market. Care for a tour? The final sale price, this way.
