Chinatown in Works Near Ann Arbor

from the Detroit News
Milan Township— Southeast Michigan may become home to a veritable Chinatown, a planned community of 415 upscale homes for Chinese immigrants, off U.S. 23 south of Ann Arbor. The idea behind the proposal is to encourage Chinese investors to open businesses here and take advantage of in-state tuition at the University of Michigan, saving tens of thousands of dollars per student. Read story here.

220 acres of land were purchased for the project by a Chinese firm...they paid $1.9 million in cash.

Sounds like what they did in Idaho - a country within a country.
