A massive abandoned, partially-finished shopping plaza (that looks like a ghost town itself) may be one of suburban Detroit’s most spectacular ruins.

No offense to the OP, but I can’t stand when someone says “Detroit” or groups an area like this as Detroit.
Bloomfield Hills is one of the top “wealthiest” cities in the country and has the highest family income in the state and is in the upper #’s for the country.
This isn’t Detroit or what Detroit is known as and certainly shouldn’t be grouped/compared to the Packard or Fisher buildings.

As for this being abandoned.. I actually have some real info on this.. The owners/builders were chugging along, getting this park ready to go, when the fighting between the property owners and the city began. All hell broke loose and the owners told the builders to stop work.
There was a peace treaty between the owners and the city, but at that point, the owners had dicked over the builders. So obviously, the builders told them to pound sand.
The property owners then hired a security company to patrol. That security company is owned by a friend of mine. He said it was a mess and getting paid was like pulling teeth. Which is why he is no longer the security company.. (For the record, they were good about trespassers. The only thing they really were sticklers about were long boarders in the parking garage and drug sales)..

But, now we’re back up and going as someone mentioned.

Personally, I don’t know why they chose this area for a park like this. It seems very ill placed. I know the original intention was office buildings, but shopping plaza/mall was the other long time rumor.

Again, no offense intended to the OP, just a gripe!

Sincerely,
Guy that lives around the block in a not-affluent area.
