As Ford reimagines its business for a new century, it has turned to Detroit’s oldest neighborhood as a launchpad for its plans. In Corktown, we are creating an innovative hub where Ford and its partners will work on autonomous and electric vehicle businesses, and design urban mobility services and solutions. Michigan Central Station and a number of Ford-owned properties nearby will anchor a 1.2 million-square-foot campus that will be home to approximately 2,500 Ford employees, most from the company’s mobility team, and an additional 2,500 people from Ford’s partners and suppliers.
The centerpiece of Ford’s Corktown vision is Michigan Central Station, a beloved Detroit landmark that was acquired in June 2018. Ford plans to return the grand hall of the station to its original grandeur and attract local shops and restaurants in support of a vibrant, inclusive public space for all, while the tower will be transformed into modern office space.
