Between the Little Caesars Arena and the Mike Ilitch School of Business, a new building by Olympia Development has wrapped up construction. Today, they announced that law firm Warner Norcross + Judd is getting ready to move into one floor of the building.
60 attorneys and staff will work on the third floor after workplace restrictions are lifted. The build out is complete and their office will include a lounge, cafe, and media center.
Boston Consulting Group will move into another floor of the building next month.
A spokesperson from Olympia Development says there has been a lot of interest in the top two floors of the building. Olympia is also talking to businesses about the ground floor, with the possibility for retail or dining.
The building was originally supposed to be a sports medicine complex with the Detroit Medical Center. But the DMC changed plans last year due to COVID.
The $70 million building has floor-to-ceiling windows, a staffed lobby, and according to Olympia, an "advanced air distribution allowing for 50 percent more fresh-air circulation than standard systems, and enhanced air/particle filtration."
Christman-Brinker managed the construction of 2715 Woodward and Harley Ellis Devereaux was lead architect.
This is one of many new construction and renovation developments announced by Olympia in their "District Detroit." While many developments haven't come to fruition, Olympia says that the renovation of both the Eddystone Hotel and the Women's City Club building should finish later this year.
