OAK PARK, MI-Schostak Brothers and Co. Inc., Northland Plaza Associates LLC and Armory Plaza LLC are expected to begin work soon on transforming an old armory to a new mixed-use development. The Detroit Artillery Armory in Oak Park will be razed and a $50-million commercial and light-industrial development will take its place, according to the developers.

The developers, who purchased the property from the Michigan National Guard last year, intend to demolish most of the blighted buildings on the 94-acre site. The Michigan Economic Development Corp. approved a tax increment financing plan worth approximately $2.4 million in state and local taxes to support the redevelopment.

The former Armory location is along 8 Mile Road in Oak Park, near Coolidge.
