Near the graffiti-covered intersection of Michigan and Clark, a sign for the Clark Street Technology Park has long pointed to an expanse of almost rural-looking land. The property was previously home to Cadillac's Clark Street Assembly Plant, a major production facility that anchored the neighborhood from the 1920s until it closed in 1987. Demolition came in 1994.
Twenty-one years later, the fields will again be put to use. Multiple reports claim that a "major manufacturer" bought 25 acres to built a massive, 190,000-square-foot logistics center that is estimated to employ 228 people. Look for the 8-month construction process to begin in the near future.
