Sustainability measures and greener connections to surrounding neighborhoods are woven into the design plans to renovate and revitalize this historic 30-acre site in Detroit. Pine & Swallow is contributing soils expertise to support outdoor plazas, street trees, bio-retention areas, and lawn and garden beds to aid the transformation of this site to a welcoming civic space. With pedestrian friendly and multi-modal transportation features, Ford Motor Company intends for the area to become a mobility innovation district with the historic train station as its center.
