Google has signed a lease for new office space adjacent to Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. Located at 52 East Henry St., the 29,178 square foot facility will house more than 100 media sales and technical support employees by spring 2018.
“The city of Detroit has a rich history of culture and innovation, and we’re excited to be a part of its world class talent and world class companies,” says Danielle Russell and Guy Schueller, co-site leads for Google Birmingham. “Our new space will not only provide room for future growth, but will also give us the opportunity to contribute to the dynamic economic and community activity happening in Detroit.”
While the space undergoes construction, employees are currently working out of Google’s Birmingham location.
“This exciting move by Google is another clear sign that, in The District Detroit, we’re building one of the best and most exciting places to live, work, and play in the entire region,” says Christopher Ilitch, president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings Inc. “Google joins other world-class organizations like the Detroit Pistons, the Detroit Red Wings, the Detroit Tigers, Olympia Entertainment, 313 Presents, the Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University, Little Caesars Pizza, and others who are bringing new development, jobs, and innovation to this critical area in our community.
“We welcome Google as the first of many new tenants expected to join The District Detroit in office, retail and residential developments.”
The Google office space will be located in upper level offices located on the south side of the Via, a glass atrium pedestrian space that partially surrounds the arena.
