Michigan Central Station

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.

I saw this related story last week. Apparently the thief stole the clock to save it for just this moment in history. It is a great thing that Ford is doing for not just the station, but for the city of Detroit.
