Recently, more windows have appeared near the top of the historic Michigan Central Station. More than 1,000 have been promised for a long time, but some of them are finally here. We snapped some shots earlier today.
A little background on Michigan Central Station. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places and opened in 1913. Restoration to viability for the structure continues to be a long process.
Above and below are close up detail shots of the front.
An angle looking up so as to see some of the detail not as clear from straight on.
The above view is from the side of the station.
And a back detail shot.
Also of course, here’s a wide angle from behind the station. It’ll be interesting to see if MCS owners actually follow through on their plans to add windows to the station, or if this is just another round of limited progress around rehabilitating one of Detroit’s most iconic buildings.
