Packard Plant redevelopment

Recommended Posts

This redevelopment still has many hurdles but it would be awesome if it comes to fruition.  There are many successful examples around the country of these plants being redeveloped into awesome mixed use neighborhoods.  People are drawn to places like this!

Since TMcKay9 posted this a lot has happened as far as ownership goes but not much has happened on the ground, and not surprisingly his old Yahoo link is broke.

But so far the best use of this property in my opinion was made by one of my favorite singers:

This post was just an excuse to show off the video, but if you really want to know what's currently going on with redevelopment of the Packard Plant:

Development is coming slowly but here’s some news:

“A ‘Packard Plant Brewery coming soon’ sign was posted to a building in the 1600 E. Grand Blvd. block of the site.”

“Construction is expected to begin in spring 2018 with an expected completion date in 2019.”

Still like the  Lindsay Lou video the best and this gives me an excuse to post it again:
