  • The office block, faced with yellow brick, adjoins the station at the rear and dominates the whole complex.
  • The Michigan Central Railroad Station was designed by the architects of New York's Grand Central Station.
  • Located just west of the central city, it faces Roosevelt Park, planned by Edward H. Bennett as part of Judge Augustus Woodward's overall vision for Detroit.
  • This building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
  • Level A was a mezzanine. Level B is a storage level. Level C is a mechanical level with floors 1-15 above as office floors.
  • The roof of the rail station is 100 feet high.
  • In June of 2005, plans fell apart to move the Detroit Police Department to the building, as the extensive renovation and subsequent move were deemed too costly.
  • The structure contains a massive basement level that was used for mail and baggage purposes.
  • In Spring 2003, the Michigan Central Station was added to a short list of possible sites to replace the circa-1922 Albert Kahn-designed Detroit Police Headquarters at 1300 Beaubien Street. Another candidate is the former The Press/321.
  • The interior of the top five floors of the office tower were never finished, as high demand for office space in the tower never materialized.
  • The entire station was shuttered on January 6, 1988, after the facility had become too expensive to maintain with greatly decreased passenger traffic.
  • It was announced in June 2018 that Ford Motor Company had acquired the former station and would make it the centerpiece of its new Detroit mobility campus.
  • During renovations 227,000 gallons of water were removed from the basement and sub-basement.
