“A permanent exhibition chronicling the history of the Michigan Central Railroad originally incorporated in 1846 to establish rail service between Detroit, Michigan and St. Joseph, Michigan. The rail service that once operated in the states of Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois in the United States, and the province of Ontario, Canada should be central in the preservation and redevelopment of the Historic Michigan Central Station. ”

“Train station with shops and restaurants on the lower level with offices and art studios and rental halls above that with residential lofts in the upper levels. So much could be brought to Detroit in this one space alone. keep it alive ”

“Why do we have to go to other cities to do our shopping. I think this should be converted to a shopping mall with cinema and a community place. just to make sure that you are having the right people. put a security guy at all the entrances just like any Casino. There is a need for an indoor place that hold everything in Detroit. Maybe have Kroger in the first floor as well!”

“What a beautiful building. I love all the ideas presented. Thanks to everyone who loves this building and who are working on it's restoration. If I only get to see it via the Internet, then it's a blessing. What is the update status on restoration? The 'Talk From the Station' looks like the most frequent update in a few years ago? Also, what happened to all the beautiful light fixtures, the dining table and chairs, and the rocking chairs?”

“I live in Austin, TX and it's a very creative town. We have a couple of graffiti walls that serve as a great hangout spot for the community and graffiti artists, where otherwise they are unwelcome. Embrace the structure for what its been redeemed as by the community. Let elaborate graffiti artists start a movement of beautiful graffiti art pieces inside the station and open it to the public. Maybe even have some community gardens surrounding the place and make it a wonderful spot for the community. It's inexpensive and would be a very cool way to use the existing facility.”

“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 . ”
