Former Plant To Become Recreation Center
DETROIT (AP) — Plans are moving forward to transform a more than century-old manufacturing site near the Detroit River into an adventure and discovery center with rock climbing, archery and other activities.
The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report multi-million dollar plans for the vacant Globe Trading Company complex were discussed at Tuesday's meeting of the city's Economic Development Corp.
It is part of a plan announced last year involving the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to expand and enhance the nearby William G. Milliken State Park & Harbor. A local entity created by Detroit-based developer Roxbury Group will do the work and the DNR will buy the facility.
Work could begin this fall and it could be ready in 2013.
