(DETROIT) -- The pilot site for the newly-formed Detroit Blight Authority has been unveiled.

The site, located at the corner of St. Aubin and Wilkins streets, was unveiled on Thursday by Mayor Dave Bing and Bill Pulte, Chairman of the Detroit Blight Authority.

"The Blight Authority has been working with the Mayor’s Office for several months on a game-changing blight elimination strategy where, unlike efforts to-date, both debris-ridden lots as well as abandoned structures are removed," Pulte said in a statement. "This model carries out blight elimination at nearly half the cost and recycles over 80 percent of the material. Our goal is revitalizing communities block-by-block."
