I wonder what they're putting there.

"The demolition of the Dixie Square Mall will help revitalize the local economy and create much needed jobs," Quinn said in a statement. "Although we will always remember the Dixie Mall as the location for one of the most iconic scenes in 'The Blues Brothers' movie, it is time for this now vacant building to be torn down to make way for more economic development for the Harvey community."

what's amazing is it was abandoned all the way back when they made the movie.... and still standing until now... over 30 years!.... (but since I just went through that area on Amtrak this morning, I'm not terribly surprised)

This is how you described outer parts of Detroit, too. Closed, abandoned, but not demo'd.
