So they will be using both plants. I figured that when they announced, that they'd either have to use both plants (one operational one vacant) or have a tight squeez expanding the vacant one. BTW, a full 5,000 of these new jobs will be going in the city proper.
This went down to the wire, but they whipped out a complicated deal involving tons of land swamps and purchases by the soft deadline:

FCA land deal gets green light from Detroit and state

Detroit — The City of Detroit will get its first new auto plant in nearly 30 years.

The Michigan Strategic Fund board on Tuesday approved state incentives, including $55 million for land assembly, for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV’s proposed $2.5-billion plant expansion on the city’s east side.

The day proved to be a big one for the automaker, with the Detroit City Council approving earlier Tuesday a dozen key elements in the plant expansion.

Fiat Chrysler plans to invest $1.6 billion in expanding its Mack Avenue facilities with a new plant and investing $900 million to modernize its Jefferson North Assembly Plant. The plant expansion is expected to add 4,950 jobs.

Pointing to FCA's planned $4.5-billion investment in five Michigan plants, Michigan.Gov. Gretchen Whitmer celebrated what she called a “generational investment” that will benefit Michigan workers at FCA and automotive suppliers, predicting a total job creation impact of closer to 50,000 jobs.
