Renovations Start On Michigan Central Depot

DETROIT (WWJ) – There’s been lots of talk about a make over for the old Michigan Central Depot, and WWJ ‘s Rob Sanford said plans to do it, have just  begun.

The historic building is owned by the Detroit International Bridge Company. Officials said they have hired an architect to begin plans to renovate the structure.

Ann Arbor based Quinn Evans Architects will be designing the re-do of the depot’s roof and windows. The company specializes in restorations of historic buildings and adapting obsolete buildings for new uses.

It might be surprise to learn that while the building has been empty for years, company officials say it remains structurally sound.

One of the architectural firm’s top executives, Elisabeth Knibbe told the Detroit Free Press the depot offers some interesting possibilities.

Bridge Company officials said the renovations are the first step in returning the building to its rightful place among Detroit’s historical landmarks.
