Huge salvation hub will aid the deconstruction of Detroit’s abandoned houses
The mass exodus from Detroit, Michigan since the 1950s has left the once thriving city with over 70,000 abandoned homes. The demolition of the vacant buildings is a necessary evil if the city is to have any chance of a rebirth, but the process is both costly and wasteful. Now, Mayor Mike Duggan plans to create a reclamation centre in the city, which will serve as a hub for the recycling of tons of valuable materials — including wood over a hundred years old — which can be salvaged from the houses before they are demolished.
