DETROIT, Michigan — The city of Detroit is quietly reshaping the city’s infrastructure as it has attracted another Tech Giant to relocate to the Motor City. Google, the search engine giant announced that it is planning to move its suburban Detroit office downtown. Google just unveiled its new Ann Arbor campus last month, a 135,000-square-foot space at 2300 Traverwood Drive.
Danielle Russell, head of Google Detroit, confirmed the plans in an email to MLive on Tuesday afternoon.
“Google is psyched to be part of Detroit’s comeback,” Russell said.
“There’s so much energy in this city — so much creativity, innovation and hard work — we can’t wait to be part of the day to day action and to grow with downtown Detroit! We’ve been growing in cities all over the country, and there’s something special happening in Detroit.”
A new site and move date had not yet been set.
