Revive the Corner. Help us transform this storied site. Learn more
I think it is a great idea to maintain the baseball diamond and ensure that any development is porous to allow views of the field from the street. Also, it might be interesting to have buildings fronting the baseball diamond and, if possible, allow pedestrians to be able to traverse it when not in use.
They should replicate the old dugouts. Classic design from by-gone era. Where Lou Gehrig last appeared. My have to make them taller now!!
I'm all for the plan for the Corner so long as the entire playing field remains real grass and not artificial turf. The current playing field would be robbed of it's historic integrity if the grass is replaced by fake turf thus it really wouldn't be a preservation. I fully realize it would take more work to maintain real turf, but as you all know there are, and have been a lot of folks out there who have, and would volunteer their services to help give this historic field the TLC it so richly deserves. It would be a shame to lose one of the main characteristics of the field that stood out from everything else whenever you entered Tiger Stadium.... the lush green grass of the field. In my minds eye it won't be a true preservation if we lose the real grass. This wonderful plan has my blessing providing the field isn't replaced.
The vision is to transform this storied site into an activated, mixed-use development that builds on the Corktown neighborhood’s vibrancy and history while providing economic opportunities for generations to come.
