Quicken announces move downtown in a big way

You may recall the huge image of Barry Sanders that once covered the side of the Cadillac Building in downtown. Or maybe you don't. In any event, since the picture of Barry was removed in 2002, the side of building has been a parade of advertisements for cars, banks, and the like. The other day, Quicken Loans took over, announcing the move of their headquarters from Livonia.

Quicken's original plans to build a new headquarters have reportedly been shelved temporarily, and they'll instead occupy a few floors in the Compuware Building. Some 1,700 new workers have already begun making a daily drive every morning. I know this much: hot dog guy is loving it.
