One of the largest manufacturing facilities of its time when it was built in 1941 to build B-24 bombers for World War II, the Willow Run facility encompasses 311.68 acres and is located directly next to the Willow Run airport. There are buildings on the Property but these will be dismantled and removed. The Trust no longer is accepting offers for the buildings; the Property is being marketed exclusively to prospects with plans to redevelop the vacated land. Located just off Interstate 94, with a former rail spur that provided access to a main rail line, the Property, zoned AP, Airport, and I-C, Industrial Commercial, straddles both Washtenaw and Wayne counties.

Remedial investigations are ongoing to further evaluate LNAPL, VOCs and several metals that have been detected above applicable regulatory criteria in soil and groundwater. LNAPL (light, non-aqueous phase liquid) is present over many acres at the property. Long term groundwater and storm water solutions are currently being designed. It is expected that as part of a final remedy, LNAPL will be contained and a restrictive covenant will be recorded prohibiting residential use at the property, requiring proper management of contaminated soil, prohibiting use of groundwater for potable purposes, requiring assessment of potential vapor intrusion and requiring certain covers be retained as part of managing infiltration. Work is being performed under Part 201 and the RCRA Corrective Action program under the oversight of MDEQ.
