Detroit: the Bees Knees?

The Motor City is awash in real estate news coverage. While some see Detroit as wreckage, others see infinite opportunity. Rather, highly unusual opportunity. Check out this unexpected quote about real estate plans from New Geography:

"Mitch and Gina have already been approached by some Germans who want to build a giant two-story-tall beehive." [emphasis added]


Whoa, whoa, whoa! Do they mean a beehive-shaped building, or an actual beehive? Regardless... where else but Detroit is this even thinkable?
