Detroit? Huh?

I guess for investment purposes, then? The Chinese population of Detroit city proper is basically 0.

It says in the article why it is popular with Chinese investors.

Very interesting and I wonder if other "Rust Belt" cities and urban neighborhoods that may be in rough shape are catching the eye of Chinese investors as well? Given the interest in places where their children may attend college at, I wouldn't be surprised if there are many smaller cities seeing Chinese investors as well.

One thought is perhaps Detroit's supply of clean fresh water, compare that to other cities in China anyhow. It's a solid investment for the future. It seems rather alarming that America has abandoned Detroit's 21st century potential and the Chinese are harnessing it.

Maybe the Chinese can pour in money to the Rustbelt and Midwest and start revitalising it. It would be nice, since so many jobs there went to China.
