Great ideas, thanks Nicole. We will share your ideas with our design and real estate teams as they begin to consider a range of tenants and amenities that would benefit the neighborhood. We agree that a rooftop activation would be a wonderful addition to Michigan Central! In fact, we are currently restoring and reimagining the Book Depository building to support a future rooftop space with stunning views of Michigan Central Station, Detroit, the riverfront and Canada – and we’re exploring an outdoor area on top of Michigan Central Station too.

We’re actively seeking input from residents and business owners on identifying neighborhood needs, so your feedback is appreciated, and we look forward to more community insights on this topic. Thank you!

Thanks for your feedback, Mark. We are grateful to the community for welcoming us to the area. We want to be a good neighbor and are mindful of the concerns you raise. We are working with urban planning experts and partners like the City of Detroit to shape an overall strategy for parking and vehicular movement in and around Michigan Central, with the goal of minimizing and, wherever possible, avoiding any negative impacts to residents, including parking, traffic, safety and construction disruptions. Thanks for your insights, we’ll share with our team, and we’ll provide responses and update our questions periodically to continue to build community dialogue and solicit feedback. Thanks again for starting the conversation here!

John, your idea is very exciting and we will share it with our team and our art strategy consultants for consideration. Just to give some context on where we are … we’re in the process of developing a program for incorporating art throughout Michigan Central, such as the architecture and outdoor environments. We’re looking forward to hearing more input on this topic and continuing the conversation. Thanks again!

Thanks for your feedback Timothy. We’re in the process of developing a strategy for movement in and around Michigan Central, including the possibility of ‘last mile’ options such as shuttles. The new Bagley Mobility Hub will offer stations for micro-mobility services like e-bikes and e-scooters that will be a shared resource for workers, visitors and residents. We are also supporting a number of pilot projects geared toward improving awareness and access to mobility information and services. If you have an interest in participating in one of these, please see visit the Detroit Mobility Pilots tab above. Thanks for your input and kicking off the conversation!

Ashton & DB, we so appreciate your feedback. We are looking to preserve, in various ways, some of the graffiti in Michigan Central Station as well as exploring more broadly how art could be incorporated into all the spaces at Michigan Central. We acknowledge the important role Detroit artists have played in the area’s rich history and culture - and will continue to play in its future. Thanks for the idea - we will share it with our team and arts consultant for consideration, and we’ll provide responses and update our questions periodically to support community conversation. Thanks again for helping us start the dialogue!

Debra, thank you so much for your insight and enthusiasm! We shared an update on the Bagley Mobility Hub at the 4/22 public meeting, and we’re in the process of scheduling a dedicated Listen & Learn session for public discussion and questions on this topic. Regarding public visitation to the Michigan Central site, with our Info Center temporarily closed due to the pandemic, we’re exploring other options for collecting ‘in-person’ insights. Thanks again for your ideas!
