Cobo Center Gets A New Name
After six decades, one of Detroit’s most famous buildings gets a new name.
TCF Bank has announced that the Cobo Center will be renamed the TCF Center.
The new name was announced at a press conference on Tuesday morning. The press conference was followed by a block party to celebrate the renaming of the city and to bring together the people of Detroit.
“Today the convention center turns a page and from now on this center will bear the name of an institution that is committed to rebuilding the city for everybody,” said Mayor Mike Duggan.
Senator Debbie Stabenow gave her thoughts on the name change as well, stating, “I’m excited about the name change for a great facility and a great city.”
TCF Bank Chairman, Gary Torgow said of the name change, “Today, a name from the past comes down and we proudly and honorably replace it with a name that stands for inclusion and everyone associated with it,”
The Cobo Center name itself held an air of negativity with the building being named after controversial Detroit mayor, Albert Cobo who served as mayor from 1950 to 1957.
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr first gave his “I Have A Dream” speech at Cobo in 1963, six weeks before giving the speech in Washington D.C.
