Plans are in place to demolish the old Northville Psychiatric Hospital on 7 Mile Road in April 2018.

The site has been abandoned for years and demolition was a high priority for Northville Township Supervisor Robert Nix. 

The buildings at the property have been in a deteriorating condition, including asbestos and other environmental hazards.

"For the past several years, scrappers and trespassers have vandalized the property, spreading asbestos and have accelerated the deterioration of the buildings. This activity created public safety concerns for our residents and anyone entering the property," Nix said. 

"I am extremely excited that this demolition project is coming to fruition and thank our team for all their efforts," he said. "Our residents will soon be able to view the skyline on Seven Mile with that blight to our community removed.

The demolition will occur from April-July 2018 and the project will be completed by October 2018.
