Located next to the iconic Ford train station in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood, Newlab at Michigan Central opened its doors in April 2023 and embodies the story of revitalization and transformation in Detroit.  

Newlab was built from the skeleton of a crumbling book depository and is now home to 90 startups in a range of industries from EV off-road vehicles to smart wheels built to streamline warehouse logistics.  


The facility helps entrepreneurs cut time off the development cycle of their products, Newlab CEO Cameron Lawrence said. One Detroit Producer Will Glover talks with Lawrence about efforts to make Detroit a destination for technology and innovation.
