The vacant Pontiac Silverdome

Monday, May 19, 2014

Detroiturbex - a website dedicated to documenting the past, present and future of the City of Detroit - has created this video that shows the degradation of the Pontiac Silverdome, the former home of the Detroit Lions, a stadium that from its opening in 1975 up to 1997, was the largest in the NFL.

From Wikipedia:
After the stadium's NFL team, the Detroit Lions, moved to Ford Field in 2001, the stadium was left without a permanent tenant. After multiple attempts to solicit redevelopment plans, the city sold the stadium at auction in 2009. A roof collapse and heavy winter-storm damage has made refurbishment impractical; as of May 2014, the stadium's contents are being salvaged and auctioned and future development is uncertain.
