Michigan Central

We built michigancentral.info to encourage public feedback and support open dialogue among local residents and business owners. A community-informed process will guide Michigan Central’s approach to connecting with our neighbors, building relationships, and co-creating a more inclusive future of mobility. Please share your insight using the Feedback tab. We will share responses and update our questions periodically to support community dialogue.


Michigan Central is a new mobility innovation district located at the intersection of Corktown and Southwest Detroit. Ford Motor Company is restoring Michigan Central Station to be the centerpiece of this district, where mobility innovators and disruptors from around the world will develop, test, and launch new urban transportation solutions. 


Ford’s vision for a 30-acre walkable innovation hub in Corktown is part of its plan to reshape the future of global mobility, working with key partners and suppliers and connecting to a broader network of city and regional assets and testing. Michigan Central will include new and revitalized buildings, a first-of-its-kind mobility testing platform, multiple outdoor plazas, open spaces and 1.2 million square feet of commercial public space.


Working with and in the community, Michigan Central will prioritize the needs of local residents and businesses, as well as the 5,000 employees who work there.
