Since the closure of Tiger Stadium in 1999, an often hot topic in the City of Detroit has been what to do with the site. For many years people had pushed for it to be turn into a museum. That all went away when the stadium itself was finally torn down in 2009. Since then, the land has sat vacant waiting to be redeveloped. Well, the wait might finally be over.

Two local developers, Roxbury Group of Detroit, and the Larson Realty Group of Bloomfield Hills, responded to the city’s March request for proposals with plans for a mixed-use development including retail and residential space, but multiple sources told the Free Press that Larson had been selected.

Larson’s plan calls for smaller retail along Michigan Avenue, as well as a mix of for-rent and for-sale housing.

Detroit PAL reached agreement with the city in July to build its new headquarters and related facilities on the western and northern edges of the site while preserving the historic playing field for youth sports.

Along the Cochrane Avenue side of the site, PAL would build its new headquarters that would employ up to 30 people. Detroit PAL would maintain the playing field for youth sports, including high school and college baseball.
