The Corktown campus will be an “an innovation hub for Ford’s vision for the future of transportation.” The company is expecting the square footage of its Corktown campus to run 1.2 million square feet (with Michigan Central Station taking up 600,000). 900,000 of that is expected to be used by Ford and its partners, with 300,000 of that for community space, retail, and housing.
Properties acquired to date are:
- The Factory (1907 Michigan Avenue), where over 200 employees have already started working,
- Michigan Central Station,
- The Book Depository at 2231 Dalzelle Street,
- And land near the old Tiger Stadium, now home to the Police Athletic League complex.
The company is giving itself a four-year timeline to complete the campus. By completion, it expects 2,500 Ford employees working in Corktown, with another 2,500 partner employees in the Corktown campus.
