“Michigan Central Station School Make the building a new research lab school for students to get the best and newest education while giving student teachers the chance to learn from the best teachers. The top floors could be turned into residence for the permanent teaching staff and another floor turned into residences for student teachers. The rest of the building could be used for school classrooms and learning areas. The building would be available for community use as well and be a fresh start to not only Detroit but for education in the city. ”

“use the lower floors as an open mall or something reminiscent of the feel of the old trappers alley in Detroit. and the upper floors into a commercial offices and/or hotel. possibly also a restaurant/catering facility on the top floor”

“Commission college students from around the nation, with a background in design, architecture, photography, to propose ideas for each section of the structures. The students must propose a sustainable design for Detroit, and work with a professional architect, contractor or engineering, to make their design structurally sound. Use social media and film to make a video that is so inspiring that everyone will want to be part of this. -SBS”

“Restore it to its former glory and splendor the likes of which can be equal to the Grand Central Terminal that sees tens of thousands of commuters and citizens passing through its grand hallways and great halls daily. Please do not let this splendid icon of Beaux-Arts architecture meet the same fate that Pennsylvania Station met in 1963 - to be demolished and replaced by an abhorrent underground tunnel labyrinth, nor let it continue rotting and decaying in disuse and disrepair like the cruel fate that has befallen the majority of Detroit's once grand Art-deco and Beaux arts...”

“What a beautiful building... it should be revived as a commuter terminal. It would be the perfect endpoint for a hyperloop between Chicago/Detroit. It's a grand idea for a grand building, and it would bring some good press back to a city that desperately needs a new identity. ”
