(WXYZ) — Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan gave his annual State of the City address on Tuesday night at the renovated Michigan Central Station in Corktown.

He highlighted the transformation of the train station, which closed in 1988, and is now being refurbished by Ford Motor Company for a new Detroit campus.

The Mayor also highlighted a low-income apartment building being totally replaced for residents with no rent increase should they choose to stay.

Throughout the address, Duggan focused on the future of Detroit, just 10 years after the city declared bankruptcy.
