Northville Township will pay $197,200 to have one of the buildings at the former Northville Psychiatric Hospital demolished.
Township trustees unanimously approved a demolition contract with Adamo Group at a March 19 meeting. Building 72 will undergo asbestos abatement before demolition. The township, which owns the land, previously contracted with Adamo to demolish the former Scott Prison at Five Mile and Beck roads. According to Trustee Marv Gans, Adamo was the low bidder and the township has had success in working with the business previously. The township paid $19,530 for asbestos and hazardous materials survey at the building last year.
When all the buildings are demolished at the site, the township plans to develop park land on the property. Voters in the township approved a $23.5 million bond in 2009 to buy the land.
REIS, which owns the adjacent former hospital property, has already begun construction on retail and commercial buildings near the new University of Michigan Medical facility.
