No this is way off the highway. Grey, different levels. The largest of which could easily be 20 stories but no windows. very strange

No idea. The only thing I can think of in the area that would be 20 stories or more would be Fermi, but obviously that's not it -- and it's to the east.

What is that enormous building with no windows on the west side of I-75 between exits 15 and 18?

I've tried googling it and nothing.

Thanks
It may be Taylor Welded Blanks, they have a large facility right there off the freeway.

Drove through that stretch yesterday on the way to Cedar Point. Is this the building you are referring to? It is the only one that matched your description, although it is not on the West side, but the East side of the freeway. This is the TWB (Taylor Welded Blanks) facility.

Detroit area. I want to move back to Rochester Hills. But DH's new job is in Ecorse and it might be too far of a drive. We want to rent for a couple years before we buy. So if anyone knows of a great deal on a rental house or a good agent that deals with rentals, let me know.

Look in Wyandotte, Riverview, or Trenton. We are in Lincoln Park but go to Wyandotte schools. Is your Dh working for the mill?

For daycare reasons we need to stay near Oakland County. My mom is going to watch our son once I got back to work. Plus the jobs I am looking I am applying to are in the Troy/Bloomfield Hills area.

Sorry, I'm directionally challenged YES that is it! Thanks so much. We used to pass it so often going to my son's football games and it was bugging me

We live in south Alabama, but...

DH's family (from Missouri) has vacationed in Onekama forever. This summer was their 50th anniversary! We honeymooned there and this summer we took our kids for the first time. Hopefully we can visit every summer! I'm officially the opposite of a snow bird. I migrate away from the heat during the summer. I still can't get over wearing a sweatshirt and jeans on the beach! We LOVE Michigan!
