The District Detroit Milestone: First Tenants Move into New Mixed-Use Building at Little Caesars Arena

090 First Tenant 720 X 480

More than 200 Detroit Red Wings, Olympia Entertainment and 313 Presents employees have moved into a new four-story mixed-use building at Little Caesars Arena along Woodward Avenue in The District Detroit.  The move marks another milestone in the development of The District Detroit, a $1.2 billion investment which is adding new office, retail, residential and community spaces to Detroit’s remarkable comeback. The occupation of nearly 90,000 square-feet of office space coupled with Google’s announcement that nearly 100 of their employees are moving to office space along Henry Street means that all of the office space at the two buildings adjacent to Little Caesars Arena is allocated.

The move is providing employees with unique benefits such as a fitness center and locker room, a work café, a lounge area featuring an outdoor terrace and a modern office space. The move also puts employees at the center of The District Detroit with easy access to events and games at Little Caesars Arena and Chevrolet Plaza and to newly-opened dining and retail options, such as Mike’s Pizza, Sports & Social Detroit and the District Market. 

A number of additional milestones can be expected in The District Detroit in 2018 with opening of the new Little Caesars world headquarters campus expansion and the opening of the new Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University.
