Detroit's Broderick Tower Now Home to Internet Services for Businesses


The Broderick Tower in downtown Detroit is the home to a new service offering Internet and cloud services to businesses in the city.

"Our fiber networks connect directly to our data centers enabling customers to get the coveted combination of speed and reliability while also leveraging the benefits of the cloud," says Robert Sanders, president of Troy-based ManagedWay. He says the company delivers high-capacity bandwidth via proprietary fiber directly to the Broderick Tower.

Sanders says ManagedWay has partnered with Metro Wireless to provide high-speed connections to Detroit businesses via fiber and wireless Ethernet. Sanders says from the Broderick Tower, ManagedWay and Metro Wireless will be able to serve nearly all of the downtown area. He says many of the new customers in the city are apartment building owners.

"This project represents a significant investment that can help Detroit businesses to significantly increase their data capabilities," says Dominic Serra, owner of Metro Wireless.  He says the partners have more than 100 clients in Detroit.

The 34-story Broderick Tower, located at 10 Witherell St., is home to luxury apartments while a wine bar, a beer garden, and a restaurant will be introduced in the coming months. The structure, designed with neoclassical architecture design, was originally constructed as the Eaton Tower under the direction of famed architect Louis Kamper. Completed in 1928, it was the second tallest skyscraper in Michigan.
