According to a Detroit Free Press report, Wayne County will be moving forward with a potential multi-million dollar land development deal in Huron Township.

The report states that the project is being described as an office park development and will be located on 16 parcels near the I-275 and Sibley interchange — totaling about 134 build-able acres — that sits adjacent to the current abandoned Pinnacle Racecourse, which closed its doors in 2011.

The property, which has been abandoned and poorly maintained since the racecourse’s closure, is in dire need of some sort of rejuvenation.

Government officials seem to think this project will provide exactly that.

The project is part of the 13 year old aerotropolis development, which was a key initiative of the administration of former Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano.
