Mayor Mike Duggan announced in April that the building’s owners would be required to install 1,050 windows this year as part of a land transfer deal with the city. City Council last month approved the agreement with the Detroit International Bridge Co.

The new windows are expected to upgrade the exterior of the train station. The 18-story building was built in 1913 but fell into disrepair after rail service ended in 1988. Ambassador Bridge owner Manuel “Matty” Moroun bought the building in the 1990s.
