DTE Energy Ann Arbor Mixed Use Riverfront Development Might Include New Amtrak Station

Ann Arbor authorities have responded favorably to a proposal by DTE Energy to develop riverfront property that could include a new Amtrak station.

Amtrak 4DTE is seeking to develop property it owns along the Huron River by creating a mixed used development.

The site is near the current Amtrak station. The city has been studying where to put a new Amtrak station.

Ann Arbor Mayor Christopher Taylor said he welcomes DTE Energy’s proposed development and that it might include a new Amtrak station along Depot Street.

City Council Member Jane Lumm also welcomed the possibilities for cleanup and redevelopment of the 14-acre riverfront property, located at 841 Broadway St.

DTE said it is working with a private developer and architect to create plans for a riverfront restaurant, hotel, office space and green space that would be open to the public.

Ann Arbor is served by Amtrak’s Chicago-Detroit (Pontiac) Wolverine Service trains.
