"Detroit hasn't built a new downtown park or public square since Hart Plaza in the 1970s. That effort was a mixed success at best -- busy during special events but at most times awesomely empty. Now Detroit is trying again...A lot is riding on Campus Martius. If it succeeds, the park could give downtown a big helping of the urban vitality and street life that great cities have in abundance but that Detroit has lacked for far too long."
