General Motors closes historic Willow Run plant
Importantly, Willow Run's owner is currently Motors Liquidation Corporation; "Old GM." While other historic auto industry sites have been razed, Willow Run was named a Michigan historic site in 1980, and ownership will default to a trust if a new owner is not found by the end of 2010. Such large facilities are never easy to sell, but with southeast Michigan's economic troubles even deeper than the challenges facing the national economy, finding a new owner looks to be a particularly challenging task.
