Here's a Gas Station Getting Killed Off Across From A Casino

New, 6 comments

Is there a development plan in the works for the former site of a gas station on Grand River across from Motor City Casino? We have no idea. But they were making quick work of the station tear-down. These images were taken about an hour ago this morning. Know what is up with this site? Email the tipline. [Curbed Detroit Staff]

UPDATE 2:00 PM An anonymous tipster emails these details:
I work at MotorCity Casino and we were told in a recent meeting that the gas station will be torn down and the property will be landscaped. It might also become overflow parking for the casino. The Casino/Illitches own this land. At one point they considered operating
it as a gas station, but clearly that isn't going to happen.

We'll update you as we learn more.
