After years of complaints, the city will finally demolish the former Arnold Nursing Home that closed around 2002. The building has been in tax foreclosure twice since 2008 and took the lives of two scrappers when a roof collapsed last December. Karla Henderson, a group executive for Mayor Dave Bing, said the city will spend $4.4 million to raze the facility this summer along with the former Wayne State University Shapero Hall, an eight-story high-rise off Interstate 375, and a handful of smaller commercial buildings across the city.
