If you’ve ever been to Detroit, you’ve probably seen Michigan Central Station. And you’ve probably wondered why someone didn’t just tear it down.
Visible from miles around, the 18-story building has been abandoned for decades and is, literally, a mere shell of its former self.
Now Ford has purchased the crumbling building and on Tuesday will announce plans to make it part of a major technology center.
“I remember the train station when it was vibrant and it was an awesome place.” Ford chairman Bill Ford said in an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow.
