As a native Detroiter I love seeing good news about the Motor City. Detroit has taken its fair share of knocks lately, but Dan Gilbert’s decision to move Quicken Loans downtown has infused some hope into those who love the city. Quicken Loans’ story was featured in today’s Detroit News, framing a positive outlook for the company and its new hometown.
Fulfilling his promise to move Quicken Loans and associated businesses downtown, Gilbert is pushing against much of mainstream thought that Detroit is too far gone to be welcoming environment for any corporation. And for those that know Gilbert, he is all about keeping his word.
