Detroit has an opening (or two) for window repair

Michigan Central Station

It looks like one of Detroit’s better known derelict buildings might be getting some attention soon.

Built in 1913 and unused since 1988, Michigan Central Station has become an icon of Detroit’s decay.

The building’s owner has announced their intention to repair the roof and the hundreds of windows, nearly all of which have been shattered by vandals.

Here’s hoping that the work is successful and a new use is found for this grand old place.

DETROIT – The owner of the Michigan Central Depot plans to replace the roof and windows on the shuttered train station with hopes of attracting a developer for the building that for years has been symbol of Detroit blight.
