I think so Fuzz.  Not going to be an overnight deal either.  It took years of concentrated vandalism and the ravages of weather to bring the grand old building to it's knees but, I'm sure the Ford Motor Company buyers took a hard look at the structure before they bought it.

If I live long enough, I'm really looking forward to viewing the transformation.  I understand that the main concourse will be like a mall of sorts with shops and things to do.  Only the main building will be offices and part of that will be leased out as well.

In as much as the building is on the National register of Historic Buildings, I would think Fords will apply for and get grants and tax abatements on it as well.

No matter what, it's a huge undertaking for any corporation.  I look for the Maroun family to break ground now on the new bridge.
