Michigan Central Station

A couple of miles from downtown Detroit, in the Corktown neighborhood, stands Michigan Central Station. At 18 stories, it is a grand building that has been vacant and deteriorating for decades.

Ford Motor Company just announced that they have purchased the building and surrounding land, with plans to turn it into a campus for their autonomous vehicle and mobility teams.

The plans call for all of this work to complete by 2022, so it will be a while coming, but the vision is big and I’m looking forward to seeing it unfold.
