Olympia Development, owned by Tigers & Red Wings Owner
Mike Ilitch, confirmed Monday that it "has bought about
three acres of parking lots" near the site of the Tigers'
new ballpark, according to Patricia Montemurri of the
DETROIT FREE PRESS. Olympia spokesperson Alexander
Sebastian said the land was bought for "stadium-related
development." The purchase gives Ilitch "more control over
