Ford Motor Co.'s Michigan Central Station

Recommended Posts

Well, Ford revealed today what it has planned for the renovation of the old Michigan Central Station, though, even that will be fleshed out more in the weeks to come.  About a third of the building (the top floors) will be residential in use, the rest of the tower will be offices for Ford and various affiliated companies that will support its autonmous vehicle research and design, and the old waiting room and concourse will have shops and restaurants and such.
