Notes: 
c. 1915; "Michigan Central Station, located near Michigan Avenue, between 15th and 17th Streets, covers 21 acres. Total cost $15,000,000.00 There are 11 tracks in the station that will accommodate 135 passenger coaches. The accommodations for passengers will not be excelled by any railroad Station in the world, as the conveniences include a drug store, with facilities for the care of invalids, change rooms where travelers may at a nominal cost obtain shower baths and change clothing."; owned by Michigan Central Railroad, the station was designed by Warren And Wetmore and Reed And Stem; the station opened prematurely after a fire destroyed Detroit's downtown station in December 1913, and it remained in use until Amtrak service stopped in January 1988; as of 2017, the building still stands but future use is undecided.
