Microsoft Relocates Tech Center To Downtown Detroit, Michigan
Completed in 2003 the 17-story One Campus Martius encompasses 1,088,000 square feet, 15 floors above-ground, and 2 below-ground. The late-modernist style high-rise office complex includes an atrium and fitness center.
According to Bedrock, a Detroit-based real estate firm that assisted Microsoft in site selection, “as downtown Detroit continues to evolve into a vibrant urban core home to businesses across the board from startups to Fortune 500 companies, Microsoft will be able to support the technology-driven community with its unique MTC amenities. With more than 40 locations worldwide, Microsoft Technology Centers bring together resources to help clients explore their products while interacting and experiencing firsthand how Microsoft and partner technologies can help businesses.”
"We are strongly committed to Detroit's thriving technology hub by providing resources and experienced team members to help your team find solutions to its technology challenges," said Phil Sorgen, Corporate Vice President, U.S. Enterprise & Partner Group, Microsoft. "By providing a customer-facing center dedicated to the business community, we're also supporting Detroit's continuing revitalization."
"Microsoft, like many tech companies in Detroit and around the country, recognizes that being located downtown is great for business. Today's tech talent wants to work and live in urban cores," said Dan Gilbert, Quicken Loans founder and Detroit billionaire who is spearheading that city’s revitalization efforts.
"Not only will the Microsoft Technology Center provide a much-needed resource for Detroit-based businesses, its presence will also connect Detroiters with a wider global network. This is another great example of an innovative, global business moving downtown and further evidence that Detroit is quickly becoming one of the technology centers of the country,” he added.
