Riverside Plaza is also affectionately known as "the Crack Stacks" or "Ghettos in the Sky."
It is also where your humble Captain resided for 2 years of his collegiate days.
It is your classical government/affordable housing project where somebody high on pot back in the 60's was given the architectural contract to make it look hideous and be an eye sore to the city's skyline.
All that being said I have fond memories of the Crack Stacks;
washing clothes in the bath tub because you couldn't trust your clothes to be washed in the public laundromat, not to mention it was 34 stories below my apartment
carrying 60 pounds of groceries in one shot because you didn't want to make multiple trips
running down 34 flights of stairs during a fire only to realize that if there ever was a real fire, everybody in the building would be doomed because the slow old people who live downstairs back up the stairwell like a Wisconsin driver hauling horses during rush hour on 494.
Looks like it's going to get an overhaul (of course with part of yours and my dimes), though sadly, the city will continue its rapid charge to become the next cold Detroit so it's kind of like grooming your dog before you put it to sleep.
