Roofless Silverdome to Become World's Largest Bird Bath

New, 13 comments

Open to the elements since January 2013, the Pontiac Silverdome will soon be stripped of the only thing it has left: its furnishings. Five years after buying the stadium for just $583K, real estate investor Andreas Apostolopoulos (APOP) will attempt to sell "nearly every fixture" in the Silverdome in an online auction, including seats, urinals, and even swatches of the shredded roof. APOP is locally famous for his ownership of the Penobscot Building and a failed attempt to demolish the State Savings Bank Building.
The demise of the Silverdome's roof came about after APOP intentionally allowed it to deflate in 2013. Demolition hasn't been mentioned yet, but the SilverBowl is likely doomed. Its demise would leave APOP with a 127-acre sea of asphalt.
