It's been about a year since the demolition of Tiger Stadium was completed, creating nothing but a vacant lot full of memories and rich history. According to the Detroit News, the land and the history that comes with it can now be purchased:â†µ
The city is officially seeking bids for the former Tiger Stadium site, which is now one of the most famous pieces of vacant land in the city.â†µ
The 9.5 acre site at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Trumbull has no specific restrictions on potential uses but city officials anticipate a mixed-use project, according to a statement released today by the Economic Development Corp.â†µ
It's hard to imagine a supermarket or a Bed Bath and Beyond sitting at that corner, but I guess it's inevitable that something ordinary and lame compared to Tiger Stadium will occupy the space. (That is, of course, unless SB Nation Detroit HQ tries to put in a hefty bid).â†µ
Detroit is requesting that any bidders have a substantive financial plan included with any bids, and all bids are due by Aug. 2. The site has local and state tax exempts for the next 12 years. Bidder up!
