My world, for me but you can spy.

What Does $583k Get Ya?

Try the Pontiac Silverdome.

The arena was built in 1975 for $55.7 million but was costing cash strapped Pontiac about 1.5 million a year to maintain so it was time to go.  The videos on the auction’s  website show a mothballed facility that is in good shape and virtually turnkey… 127.5 acres, 462,000 sq ft, 46 concession areas, 56 restrooms, 15,000 sq ft restaurant, two banquet facilities, 97 suites, 12,774 parking spaces, 3 out buildings, broadcast equipment, Diamond Vision, offices, lockerooms,  maintenance facility and more.

Simply amazing!  It reminds me of when Geauga Lake closed in Fall 2007 and the current demolition of Columbus City Center.  Reuse anyone?
