This is Building 39 in March of 2010. (HERE is an earlier post about the disintegration of this building)
Here is what is left of it today.
wow! way different than the last time i saw it!!
Western end of the building is now gone. How could you drive up to mt Rushmore and leave with a head? Only in Detroit can a building spontaneously demolish itself.
I’d be curious to see how much debris actually gets recycled. Perhaps in some way the old building(s) get to live on…re-purposed, if you will.
Every time I see Packard related posts I am always amazed that a site of this size and complexity could not have been repurposed at some time over the last 50 or so years.
The beginning of the end. Are they dumping the debris in the basement, or is it being hauled away?
ZOMG TEH PACKARD IS BEING DEMOLISHED!!!
Looking a lot like the last days of the Atwater warehouses
I was shocked when I drove past this. It seemed to happen over night. It doesn’t look like fire. What happened to it?
