Microsoft is all set to move its Southfield, Mich office from the suburbs to Downtown Detroit. Dan Gilbert and Bedrock, along with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan are set to make the big announcement on the morning of February 3 at the One Campus Martius building.
During the recent North American International Auto Show Gilbert said in an interview that he would be announcing a major tenant move downtown in about a week. Real estate insiders immediately said he was likely talking about Microsoft, which currently has sales offices in the Southfield Town Center and is said to have been considering a move to Detroit for months.
There Microsoft will occupy 50,000 square feet in One Campus Martius, a building owned in part by Dan Gilbert and home to a large chunk of the Quicken Loans team. A large part of that team will be moved due to the move, though no location has been mentioned yet.
The announcement is set for 8:30 a.m., and you can watch it live on ClickOnDetroit.com
