Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay: Howes on Ford’s Corktown vision

Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partners in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics – and what it all means. This week, Howes predicts Ford Motor Co.’s acquisition of the Michigan Central Depot will prove transformational for Detroit’s oldest neighborhood – and the Blue Oval itself. The company envisions integrating a planned campus, anchored by a redeveloped train station, into the surrounding community that would get front-row seats to witness next-generation mobility, autonomy and electrification work.
