What’s the Future for Detroit’s CPA Building?

There’s a debate looming over the future of the CPA building in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood.  The owners, New York-based Sequoia Property Partners, say the city and Corktown neighbors are pushing for the CPA’s demolition, while locals say that’s all wrong. The building resides immediately west of Slows BBQ and was built in 1924, but has been empty for years. Listen to Dan Austin, author and founder of HistoricDetroit.org , to discover what’s really going on over on Michigan Avenue.
