Michigan Central is a new mobility innovation district located in Corktown, Detroit’s oldest neighborhood. Ford Motor Company is restoring Michigan Central Station to be the centerpiece of this district, where mobility innovators and disruptors from around the world will develop, test, and launch new urban transportation solutions.

Future of Global Mobility


The 30-acre, walkable district includes 1.2 million square feet of commercial real estate, modern workspaces for 5,000 workers, maker labs, high-tech connected infrastructure, open spaces, and a state-of-the-art testing environment. A fully stored, technology-enabled Michigan Central Station will be the heart of the district and a must-see destination for visitors from the region and the world, featuring locally inspired restaurants, world-class public art, and vibrant community gathering spaces.


Ford’s vision for a 30-acre walkable innovation hub in Corktown is part of its plan to reshape the future of global mobility, working with key  partners  and suppliers and connecting to a broader network of city and regional assets and testing. Michigan Central will include new and revitalized buildings, a first-of-its-kind mobility testing platform, multiple outdoor plazas, open spaces and 1.2 million square feet of commercial public space.  Working with and in the community, Michigan Central will prioritize the needs of local residents and businesses, as well as the employees who work there.
