What is left of a factory and a home badly damaged by fire earlier this year will begin to come down today at Loomis Road and Interstate 894, as the city prepares to again market the properties for redevelopment.
Greenfield had bought the properties as part of the redevelopment project dubbed Greenfield Crossing. Planners would like to see a mix of residential and commercial, possibly including a hotel, go into the site, Richard Sokol, Greenfield director of neighborhood services.
Fire delayed site demolition efforts, and it will take crews the rest of the week to clean up the properties, but the "for sale" signs should be going up in a couple of weeks, Sokol said.
Before the economy tanked, several hotels were interested in the site, which is appealing to prospective developers because it is the first place west of the Mitchell Interchange to offer full freeway access, he said.
