Jail Bailout

New, 3 comments

Wayne County's downtown jail project gets worse and worse. Over $100M into construction, it's been revealed that county officials approached Dan Gilbert weeks ago to gauge his interest in buying site should the project be cancelled altogether. Wayne County bought the property for $10M (and a property swap) a couple years ago. What would Gilbert have to pay today for 7.6 acres and a partially constructed jail? [Freep]
