FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A roughly $1.7 million project to demolish a former Flint apartment complex seeks to stabilize the surrounding area and spur neighborhood redevelopment.

The Genesee County Land Bank says work started this month to tear down the former Glen Acres Apartments, located along one of the city's main thoroughfares.

The demolition and cleanup effort is a collaborative partnership between Flint and the Genesee County Land Bank. The work will be funded by money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant program.

The first phase includes the demolition of eight of 13 on-site structures and removal of debris, parking lots and brush. The second phase, which includes demolition of the rest of the structures, is tentatively scheduled for August. The 8-acre property will become green space.
