GM's former plant in Janesville, Wisconsin appears to be on the verge of demolition and redevelopment.

A St. Louis-based development company will start the demolition. The plant closed during the recession of 2008 when GM moved to file for bankruptcy. In 2017 a company called Commercial Development of St. Louis purchased the vacant plant with plans of redevelopment.

Recently demolition crews have converged on the site.
