Palace of Auburn Hills implosion clears way for redevelopment project
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. After countless championships and concerts since 1988, The Palace of Auburn Hills was demolished in seconds on Saturday. Former Detroit Pistons player Earl Cureton played his very first game at The Palace and says saying goodbye to the arena is painful for everyone -- from players to fans. This is an exciting time for us here in Auburn Hills, said Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel. Before the arena was sold, Auburn Hills city council rezoned the space for research and development. The one million square foot mixed-use development is expected to include corporate offices, along with research and development and technology companies.
