Former GM Plant Demolition

0102a

I finally had the opportunity over the holidays to get by and check out the demolition occurring at the old GM Transmission Plant on Kildare Rd. Looks like the demolition started on the south side, on the WWII era Border Cities Industries section, which is now, nothing more than a memory.

Just a pile of twisted metal and bricks remain where we made machine guns during WWII, and which later served as the maintenance garage for the S.W.& A railway buses, and finally as part of the GM transmission plant.

The office building part remains standing, and the future of the site remains unknown, despite rumors that it’s being considered as a site for the future new hospital. Personally I’m a fan of that plan.

Hope everyone had a great holiday. See you back here Monday!
