Say goodbye to the Michigan State Fairgrounds. The vacant 157-acre site is now firmly in the clutches of Magic Plus LLC, the group fronted by Magic Johnson. Many are not happy. The group’s plan—an uninspired tangle of parking lots, big box retail, and low-rise housing—has given many the impression that the project is a waste of all that acreage, especially considering that the property is being transferred for free (though “possible” payments in the future are mentioned.) It even inspired a whimsical, agriculture-based alternative plan with far more exciting renderings.
