Work starting soon at Detroit's old Packard Plant

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Within the next couple of weeks work crews are expected to start redeveloping the old Packard Plant in Detroit. Fernando Palazuela, the crumbling plant's new owner, plans on creating a mixed-use commercial and industrial facility at the site.

Palazuela bought the vacant 40-acre property at a foreclosure auction last year for 405-thousand dollars. He plans to completely redevelop some parts of the facility while maintaining the historic integrity of other parts.
