Old Northville Psychiatric Hospital to be Demolished in 2018

Hospital has been abandoned since closing in 2003

By Ken Haddad, WDIV ClickOnDetroit,

The old Northville Psychiatric Hospital in Northville Township will be demolished next year.

The old psychiatric hospital has been abandoned for many years and officials announced Monday a plan to demolish the site in 2018.

“For years, these buildings have created blight and have been a significant drain on public safety resources," said Township Supervisor Robert Nix in a press release.

“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 added.

The hospital was built in 1952 and has been closed since 2003. The abandoned hospital sits on 7 Mile Road between Haggerty and Northville Road.

The current timeline subject to weather conditions is as follows:

  • November 2017: Setting up a work area on-site including a mobile office; fencing the perimeter, setting up large flood-lights, video surveillance and security detail during non-work hours.
  • End of November – beginning of 2018: beginning the abatement process; encapsulating the building.
  • April – July 2018: Once the building has been environmentally cleared, the above ground demolition of the buildings will begin.
  • July – mid August 2018: Crushing and filling of the below grade floors.
  • Mid-August – October 2018: Final grading/punch list; project completion

More from the press release:

A little bit of history - as a result of an election in 2009, Northville Township acquired nearly 350 acres surrounding the former Northville Psychiatric Hospital for a park and the preservation of additional open space within the Township. Township residents voted to acquire the property at a cost of approximately 23.5 million dollars.

The property purchase included the main Psychiatric Hospital and 18 other buildings. The buildings were in a deteriorating condition including asbestos and other environmental hazards creating a challenge to the Township for their removal and demolition. 

July 2017: Police stepping up patrols at abandoned Northville Psychiatric Hospital

Some think it's haunted and others are just looking to explore, but either way, you'll be fined $500 if police catch you at the former Northville Psychiatric Hospital site.

"We know there is asbestos free floating at the site. There are shards of glass and holes in the floor. It is a very unsafe site," Northville Director of Public Safety Todd Mutchler said.

So far this year, Mutchler's officers have netted 300 people trespassing on the property. In addition to the $500 fine, some of the judges are requiring those busted to post on social media about being ticketed as part of their punishment.

The site is gated, and clearly marked no trespassing. Mutchler said even the $500 ticket for some isn't enough of a deterrent.

"Based on the number of people who have come back for a second time, I don't know that $500 works. We've arrested people who have been previous customers," he said.

What sets my service apart is my personalized approach - I listen to your needs and stay focused on what's important to you and your family throughout the transaction.  I try to carry myself with tact and diplomacy through all aspects of the sale and set expectations in advance to prepare you ahead of time.  

It's no wonder so much of my business is built on referrals. People trust me to help them with major decisions in their lives. That's a responsibility I don't take lightly. My goal is to make my clients feel at ease and comfortable throughout the home buying or selling process. My goal is to help you reach yours. 

Whether you are listing or buying, I will be proactive in working for you.

I will list and publicize your house to a base of 750-800 websites, and allow it to go verbally viral.

I first want to get to know you and your personal needs. Do I need to get to know your spouse and family needs as well?  

Let´s keep our priorities in mind and move forward through the process. My first and foremost priority is to get you the greatest return. If that means research, I will make that time for you, and I have the resources readily available to me through my strong supporting office.

With the end goal in mind, finding a match for you or your home, let´s go through the process, because if you win, I win.

And finally, once our business relationship comes full circle, I plan to keep in touch for future needs and referrals.

With that said, “How can I help you”?
