DETROIT (WWJ) — Technology giant Microsoft will be moving its Michigan offices from the suburb of Southfield to downtown Detroit, according to a report.
Crain’s Detroit says Microsoft will move its offices to a Dan Gilbert-owned building in Detroit, but the exact location is yet to be determined.
Microsoft’s current offices — north of 10 Mile between M-10 and Evergreen– reside in a 2.2-million-square-foot complex.
At the North American International Auto Show on Sunday, Gilbert hinted at some big construction projects in the city this year. He teased the move, saying Detroit will also see a “major” office tenant move into the city this year.
A formal announcement is expected sometime soon.
The Washington-based software and hardware company would join a growing list of big-name tenants making the move to the downtown area.
