DETROIT – Metro-West Appraisal, the nation’s largest independent residential real estate appraisal company, announced it is moving its national headquarters into downtown Detroit’s Central Business District.
Metro-West will occupy 8,000 square feet in the Chrysler House (former Dime Building), the 23-story office tower owned by Rock Ventures, the umbrella entity formed to provide coordination of Dan Gilbert’s portfolio of companies and investments.
Founded in 1987, Metro-West has more than 175 employees across 24 states. The headquarter’s team of 40, currently located in Northville, will move to Chrysler House in early March. Metro-West has plans to hire another 35 Detroit-based employees following its move.
“We are very excited to move to downtown Detroit so we can support the renaissance taking place in the city,” said Brandon Boudreau, Metro-West ’s COO. “Not only will the move be great for Detroit, it will also be a huge boost for our company morale. There’s an incredible energy downtown and we’re looking forward to exploring the city with the growing number of people working there.”
“Metro-West Appraisal’s move of its national headquarters to downtown Detroit is further proof of the opportunity that exists in the city’s urban core,” said Matt Cullen, president and CEO of Rock Ventures. “Every time another company moves to the city, Detroit’s turnaround gains scale and momentum.”
Metro-West’s move brings Chrysler House’s occupancy rate to 89 percent. The independent company has no affiliation to Rock Ventures, its family of companies or Quicken Loans.
