           About the Imagination Station

"The Imagination Station is a new nonprofit whose first job is to clean up 2230 and 2236 14th street, two blighted structures on Roosevelt Park facing the epic ruins of Michigan Central Station in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood. The house on the right will be renovated into a community media center using sustainable green practices. The burned out shell of the house on the left will be disposed of and its boundaries used as a public art space. Through this process, the Imagination Station aims to create a replicable model of redevelopment fueled by traditional partnerships and grant practices, as well as new social media techniques for fund-raising, storytelling, and volunteerism.
Community engagement will be an essential element every step of the way as we reclaim these properties for the benefit of our neighborhood."
