On this episode: The real estate firm of Dan Gilbert, the prolific billionaire businessman, would like another tax break, please, for its Hudson’s site project in downtown Detroit.

Detroit City Council is weighing the request – a $ 60 million tax abatement Bedrock says was already in the plan back when it sought initial tax breaks that required the Legislature to sign off.

But what’s in it for Detroiters?

On the latest episode of the “On the Line” podcast, host Cary Junior II and business reporter JC Reindl delve into what will happen with the famed site if Gilbert gets – or doesn’t get – the break.
