May we be seeing new life and some of Detroit’s most well known vacant since in 2016? The Detroit Free Press recently took a look at some the sites and recent efforts to redevelop these sites.

From the Detroit Free Press article

Some of Detroit’s most famous vacant sites finally may see new construction getting under way in 2016, turning some of the city’s longest-running symbols of distress into emblems of renewal.

The Hudson’s site on Woodward, the old Tiger Stadium site at Michigan and Trumbull, and the State Fairgrounds near Woodward Avenue and 8 Mile all seem likely to see redevelopment progress in 2016 after in some cases decades of disuse.

Despite the progress,  several big projects  seem almost forgotten, such as I-375 and redevelopment of the Uniroyal site. Redevelopment schemes have been in the works for those sites and others for many years, and false starts in the past have dashed hopes.
