Constructing memories

For Southwest Detroit native Rene Palileo and area residents, the revival of Michigan Central Station means more than another Detroit development. Ford Motor Company’s purchase and planned rehab of the historic building is reviving positive memories and building on hope for a future for generations to come. Palileo, who as a teenager attended parties at the shuttered station with friends, shares his personal connection with the former train station.
