Detroit Mayor Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick wants to convert the abandoned Michigan Central Depot into a new headquarters for the Detroit Police Department, according to the Associated Press. While I think many people would like to see the structure preserved, I can only assume a complete restoration would cost a fantastic sum.
“Neither Hagood nor Moroun would estimate what it might cost to refit the train station as a police headquarters.
Built in 1913 and vacated by Amtrak in 1988, the depot has been reduced to ruin by vandalism and the effects of the elements. Virtually every window is broken and the depot and more than once the city considered razing the structure.”
