Michigan Central Station 

The revitalized Michigan Central Station is a reminder of Detroit’s shared history and how it endures as a symbol of Detroit as a destination for opportunity. 

When it first opened in 1913, The Station was not only one of the grandest train depots in the United States, but the tallest in the world. However, as preferences and technology changed in regard to travel, The Station closed in 1988 and remained vacant until Ford’s acquisition of the property in 2018. Since then, more than 3,100 skilled workers have dedicated more than 1.7 million combined hours to meticulously restore The Station to its original architectural grandeur, while also retrofitting it with modern technological infrastructure to support its next chapter.  

Over time, The Station will become a vibrant public destination for Detroiters and all who visit the region, and serve as the centerpiece of the Michigan Central technology and cultural hub located at the gateway between the historic Corktown and Southwest Detroit neighborhoods. With 640,000 square feet of future retail, hospitality, event and collaborative innovation spaces, The Station will support the 30-acre Michigan Central innovation ecosystem by accommodating larger tenants and established companies, attracting and retaining technology talent and drawing in diverse businesses. The landmark will also be a stop on Detroit’s greenway plan, uniting dozens of local neighborhoods across the city to create a more connected Detroit.  

After the 11-day reopening celebration wraps up on June 16, Michigan Central will begin a phased reactivation of The Station over the next several months and years as restaurant, retail, and other commercial and community-focused partners take up residency. The first floor will be open to visitors for self-guided tours from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays from June 21 to Aug. 31. Expanded hours will be announced for fall, when the first phase of commercial activations opens to the public.
