This is exciting! I've been monitoring the clean-up and window installation but never thought it would be this far along already.

 

Fair use quote:

 

 

 

Detroit Homecoming, in its fourth year, will host an event at Michigan Central Station in hopes of sparking interest from investors and developers. A dinner will be held in September in the lobby, and attendees will be able to go up to the 13th floor to see the views of the city.

😎 Hopefully this Gem can be brought back to life since Downtown Detroit is making a Miraculous Comeback!

Indeed. :) Many formerly-abandoned buildings have been turned into nice hotels.

 

The Book Cadillac is one of my favorite comebacks. I still can't get over the change. It wasn't that long ago that it was a favorite among urban explorers, and now people are booking it for weddings and romantic weekends.
