Detroit M-1 Rail Decides on Station Design

Detroit M-1 Rail has decided on a design for the 20 stations that will dot its 3.3-mile QLINE route in downtown Detroit.

In a news release, M-1 said the stations will recognize corporate and philanthropic partners whose support served as the foundation for the public-private partnership behind the streetcar line.

The stations will recognize the sponsor with an individual custom tile, along with a plaque commemorating contributions to the project. Sponsorships required a $3 million pledge.
The stations were designed by the Detroit-based architecture firm Rosetti.

Earlier this week, M-1 began streetcar testing on its route on Woodward Avenue. Testing of the tracks with a speeder began last August.
