Packard the Never Ending
We tried to get through the whole Packard complex in one go, we really did.
The problem is that the place is just so MASSIVE you need to be fast and devote a full day to it.
Interestingly, the word on the street is that the Packard complex has been sold for 6 million to a group that is talking of “renovating” it into a marketplace. I’m guessing they’ve never actually seen the place in person, or even been to Detroit. At this point the Detroit fire department won’t go inside of the complex due to how unstable and dangerous it is, they just allow fires to burn themselves out and handle them as best they can out from the outside. Combine in the scrappers and urbex infiltrators and you’ve got yourself a nightmare of demolition, clean up and security costs. I don’t wish them any ill and it would be nice to see the property saved, but I’m not holding my breath.
