The large old parking garage at Clifford and Elizabeth appears to be going down next, in a series of Foxtown area demolitions.

Fortunately I took a few shots before they removed the big PARKING sign.

That sign is down now.

the windows were removed next

And then the crews with cutting torches and jackhammers.

Is this thing coming down ? I cant imagine they are restoring it or anything like that, it falls in the Ilitch Zone, where all is bought and razed. The rumor for years is of a new hockey stadium here, just blocks from the football and baseball stadiums.

  • Spoke to the guy running the place about 18 months back. At the time he was paying a friend to put some B/W graf-type design around the sides of the ground floor. I guess this soon was overwritten by tag and the whole lot whitewashed.

  • Opera House garage was in awful shape, nailhed. I was on the roof and I was so surprised at how decrepit it was. The new one has more capacity if I recall as well

  • yeah it makes about as much sense as demolishing the opera house garage and building…another parking garage that is almost identical in its spot.

  • ok im confused here if they can get 20 bucks per car on the local lots on game nights why didn’t someone put a roof and a coat of paint on this building years ago and get 7 floors of parking ??? Dave
