Old Fiero Powerhouse in Pontiac (MI) demolished

Recommended Posts

Pontiac - The city of Pontiac started their weekend off with a bang, blowing up the old Pontiac Fiero Powerhouse Saturday morning.

Part of the Fisher Body Plant that helped build the Pontiac Fiero GT, the powerhouse was closed in the 1980's. Located on the southeast corner of Baldwin Avenue and East Kennett, the building went down around 8:30 a.m..

Unlike past demolitions that left something to be desired (looking at you Silverdome), this implosion went off without a hitch.

Another piece of the "old" Pontiac complex is now lost to the wrecking ball. As JUSTA6 and I know from personal experience, much of the 'old Pontiac' complex' has been torn down. In some cases, it has made way for new things - like a new Post Office and sorting center. However, it most cases, it has been torn down to reduce the property tax burden. In fact, it's ironic that on the corner of Baldwin Road and Columbia Ave a U Pull and Save Auto Parts wrecking yard now resides - where a new car factory once stood.

It was someone from the local Fox-2 Detroit TV affiliate. Yeah they did have too much time on their hands.
