New Life for Historic Globe Building

The State of Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is moving forward as the anchor tenant in the historic Globe Building. Located along Atwater near the Dequindre Cut and the Detroit riverfront, the DNR plans to build an adventure and discovery center within the manufacturing facility originally constructed in 1892 and known to be where Henry Ford apprenticed. Envisioned by the planners are a rock-climbing wall with zip lines, an interpretive forest, archery range and classroom space. 

Construction is set to begin in fall 2012.
