In a move that marks a significant step toward the redevelopment of the former General Motors assembly plant in Janesville, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) today announced it has awarded the city $500,000 to help fund the demolition of the old factory.

Commercial Development Co. (CDC), a leading North American commercial real estate and brownfield redevelopment company, plans to raze the buildings to make way for about 1 million square feet of space to be used for future industrial and warehousing end users that require railroad service.
