Through the respectful envelope and interior revitalization of the old Book Depository, a previously abandoned historic building in Detroit's Corktown neighborhood, Gensler worked with Ford to re-imagine this portion of the greater Michigan Central Station development.
Designed as an innovation nexus that acts as a central node for gathering and idea exchange, the building will host office tenants on large floor plates with best-in-class shared amenities. The building will offer this next-generation tenant experience while also engaging the ground floor as a connective intersection within the overall development, serving as a boulevard for the community, industry, and the neighborhood.
All work completed as an employee of Gensler.
Project size: 260,000 SF
Completion date: January 2023
