All the windows will soon be replaced in Michigan Central Station, thanks to Chamberlain Glass & Metal Inc. The company announced Monday it has reached an agreement with MCS owners to put in the new windows.
A press release says the window company has been working closely with architects to find a window system that stays true to the historic value of the building, but also meets the high standards of a modern office tower.
Preparations for the new window system has already begun, including the installation of a modern, high-speed elevator. Chamberlain Glass officials say the elevator was necessary to reach more than one thousand window openings that extend 16 floors above street level.
Elevator work is ongoing and is expected to be completed shortly.
Other window prep is already in effect, and will continue over the next few months until the replacement windows are finished.
