Today, Huntington National Bank opened its Detroit’s Huntington Tower at 2025 Woodward Ave. in The District Detroit. Located just south of The Fillmore, the office building will serve as the headquarters for Huntington’s Commercial Bank.
It is the first office tower built in downtown Detroit in more than 30 years.
“This investment is more than a beautiful building in the heart of downtown Detroit,” says Steve Steinour, president and CEO of Huntington. “It’s another symbol of our strong commitment to the community, as well as our dedication to Huntington colleagues across southeast Michigan. After a difficult few years due to the pandemic, this building will serve as a place for colleagues to gather again and connect, collaborate and innovate, and work together to best serve our customers and communities.”
The tower further expands Huntington’s commitment to Southeastern Michigan, as Huntington’s middle market business and Huntington Technology Finance are already based in Detroit.
The new 21-story building is a modern structure that features flexible workspaces, state-of-the-art amenities, and a rooftop terrace. The design of the building marries the numerous distinctive and historical architectural styles of the surrounding landscape to project an image that contributes to Detroit’s notable skyline.
Each floor incorporates focus areas such as private offices with enough visual and acoustic privacy for customer or employee conversations. The design takes advantage of the best square footage overlooking Woodward Avenue for a collaboration zone, visible when entering each floor from the elevator lobby. The open workspace around the perimeter provides ample access to natural light.
Featured amenities include a colleague café with onsite refreshments such as Starbucks, terraces on the rooftop and 19th floor that provide outdoor access, and a new branch scheduled to open in late October.
“We are fortunate in Detroit to have some remarkable corporate leaders who are deeply invested in the success of our city and its people,” says Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “We are truly blessed to have Steve Steinour, Gary Torgow, and Sandy Pierce, who have been full partners in our city’s revitalization, especially at the neighborhood level. With Huntington’s opening today of the first high-rise office tower to be built in Detroit in 30 years, we see another level of their commitment.”
