Here are a few of the stories we're reading this week.

More hotels in Midtown?

An Oakland County developer has purchased a 3 acre plot of land by the Detroit Medical Center with visions of building two hotel concepts. One would be a lifestyle hotel with a rooftop bar and a fitness area, and the other would be an extended-stay hotel. The developer, Namou Hotel Group Inc., also runs the Hyatt Place Hotel in Royal Oak. This is in the very early stages of development; they acquired the land late last year. Crain's Detroit Business

Delay on vote for Future of Health

Detroit's City Council delayed a vote this week on the $3 billion Future of Health development in New Center. The council needed more time to consider the community benefits package. While it's the largest package in Detroit to date at about $604 million, some think it includes things the developers would already do - half of that would go towards uncompensated care in the new ER. Additional benefits didn't necessarily seem like direct benefits to the community, like the value of the new research center. The City Council should vote on it this upcoming week.

Those Ferndale bike lanes

Ferndale recently wrapped up a road diet along Woodward Avenue...except delineators have not been put in to separate bike and vehicle traffic (due to winter weather). This has caused a lot of confusion as to where to park, since the lanes weave in and out of parking spaces. Work on visual buffers should conclude this spring, which would hopefully decrease the number of $50 parking tickets vehicles are getting from parking in said bike lanes. Axios Detroit
