Train Station Is or Is Not Going to (Finally) Be Renovated

Detroit's very biggest ruin porn monument, Michigan Central Station, is getting ready for its close up. Video footage shows a man conducting a feasibility study and a woman from an architecture firm inside the building while a crew cleans up in the background.

But not too fast... The Morouns have owned the building since 1996. Why get moving now? The Detroit News sought suspicion and found it. The Morouns want to build a bridge between Windsor and Detroit and need the Department of Transportation on their side. Is the current clean-up just a publicity stunt?
