Detroit's Packard plant could be sold for $21,000

DETROIT — A former car plant that’s a symbol of Detroit’s industrial decline could be sold for as little as $21,000 after failing to get bids in an initial public auction.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report the property is to be listed as a package of 42 parcels during the second round of the Wayne County treasurer’s tax foreclosure auction, which starts Oct. 8.

The online auction runs until Oct. 25. Bidding started at $1 million for the first round of the auction, which ended Thursday.

The property went to auction after Evanston, Ill.-based developer Bill Hults earlier missed a deadline to come up money to acquire the property. He’s leading a group that wants to convert the Packard plant into a commercial, housing and entertainment complex.
