Best Use of the Former Hudson's Site 

Something that adequately makes up for the haphazard decision to demolish the Hudson's building in the first place.

It's hard to forget the images of downtown Detroit's gigantic J.L. Hudson's Department store being imploded in 1998. Since then, the two-acre site has served as a basement parking garage for employees and visitors, a gaping eyesore in what is now a booming, revitalized business district. Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert has control of the site, and a weird, futurist, swooping rendering of a structure out of 2080 has surfaced. Hopefully, the end product looks like, well, anything else. It needs to be something that makes up for the loss of the beautiful architecture Detroit had with the Hudson's.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
