Maroun is mired in a controversy over a public project upgrading connections to the Ambassador Bridge, and some say the Central Depot cleanup is P.R. ploy. Over the weekend, officials and local entrepreneurs got a tour of the efforts.
Louis Aguilar reports from the walkthrough:
"Even at this stage, when it's mainly just empty, it's remarkably beautiful and inspiring," said State Rep. Fred Durhal, D-Detroit, who took the Saturday tour. "I'm convinced the Morouns and the others involved will find a new use for that station. There is no doubt they are serious about it."
