The station consists of a one-story building which includes a waiting room, ticket office, and restrooms. The platform is accessible by a tower at the back of the building, which heads to the level of the elevated GTW Shore Line Subdivision railway.
The station was built in 1994 as a replacement for the former Michigan Central Station, which closed in 1988. From the closure of Michigan in 1988 until the new stations opening in 1994, services used a platform close to the old station.
Since the mid-2000's, MDOT has been working with local and federal agencies to develop an intermodal transit center one block south of the current station bounded by the Conrail North Yard Branch railway to the north, Wooward to the east, Amsterdam to the south, and Cass to the west. The station would bring together the services of Amtrak, DDOT, SMART, M-1 Rail, and future proposed services including the Woodward Avenue BRT and Ann Arbor-Detroit regional rail. The first phase was completed in 2010, and consisted of clearing the site and building a surface parking lot for the future station in 2010.
