Demolition of the site began in March this year and is expected to be completed in early July.

Work on the new facility will begin shortly after the site is cleared and the expected completion date is June 2022.

“What for years was a symbol of Detroit’s decline in this eastern neighborhood is now an example of real opportunity in our city,” said Mayor Mike Duggan. “At every step of this process, we ensure that Detroit residents and businesses based in Detroit are prioritized and have the chance to participate and benefit from the work being done on this exciting new project. “

Inner City Contracting chairman Curtis Johnson said he appreciates the opportunity for his company to play a key role in redeveloping a vacant site that will bring more jobs to the city.

“This project is very personal to me,” Johnson said. “Not far from this site, my kids went to daycare, family members are buried and we played ball with the Police Athletic League. We return to Detroit to a place of family, community and opportunity. Most importantly, we involve the Detroiters in the process.
