Ford Motor Company has bought Michigan Central Train Station.
The station, which opened in 1913, was built by the same firm responsible for New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
In its heyday, the 21-story building had marble floors under an arched 65-foot ceiling and was the tallest train station in the world.
But Ford’s purchase of the iconic building on 18th June highlights just how much Detroit’s is reviving.
The station will be the centerpiece of a US$1 billion Ford Detroit campus in Corktown.
Renovation will be complete by 2022.
And plans include;
- 1,200,000 sq. ft. of mixed-use development
- Moving 2,500 of its employees, roughly 5% of its southeast Michigan workforce, to the new campus
- Space for an additional 2,500 entrepreneurs, technology companies and partners related to Ford’s expansion into Autos 2.0
- Space for shops, restaurants and residential housing
- A lobby with nearly 65-foot high ceilings a public space stocked with locally owned retail, coffee shops and restaurants.
Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford Jr. enthused…
“Everything’s changing. From how we build our cars, what they run on, how we hail them. This company was born of disruption. The train station is a signal to the world that Detroit is open for business — for good.
It’s not just a building. It’s an amazing building, but it’s about all the connections to Detroit, to the suburbs, and the vision around developing the next generation of transportation.”
Chairman of Quicken Loans Inc. Dan Gilbert added,
“This is phenomenal. This is almost like a dream that this is happening. When people get together and focus on something good, a lot of great things can happen.”
