Windsor Mayor Eddie Francis' office told CBC that the GM plant on Walker Road has been sold.

The Mayor reached out to GM on Friday.

GM responded with an email confirming the sale.  However, GM said it would provide no other details.

There's a sign outside the plant, on Walker Road, that says "demolition in progress."

CBC has calls out to GM Canada and the construction group named on the sign, but there was no immediate response from either.

The plant used to employ approximately 5000 people.

It closed for good in 2010.
