The Palace of Auburn Hills to be imploded Saturday

The end of an era.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich — The Palace of Auburn Hills is finally coming down. 

According to WXYZ in Detroit, the Palace is set to be imploded on Saturday, July 11 at 8 a.m. 

The Palace closed back in 2017 and sold in July 2019. Demolition started back in March 2020. The buyer of the Palace is a joint venture between Schostak Brothers & Company, a real estate development firm based in Livonia, and Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores.

WXYZ says the sale came after Oakland County turned down the opportunity.
