Demolition of Tiger Stadium could begin this week as permits needed to start the work have been obtained by two companies awarded the project.
Detroit Economic Growth Corp. executive Waymon Guillebeaux says the permits were received last week. He is vice president of project management for the private, nonprofit agency that works with the city and businesses on economic and job development.
Messages were left Monday with MCM Management Corp. and the Farrow Group seeking comment on the demolition.
Fencing already has been put up around the ballpark, which closed following the 1999 season.
An Aug. 1 deadline still stands for a nonprofit group seeking to raise enough money to save part of the stadium.
