The new home for Little Caesars is Detroit’s first newly constructed corporate headquarters building in more than a decade, and progress is moving at a steady pace. Today a “topping out” ceremony occurred, marking the last structural beam going into place. A tree was affixed to the top of the building, with the iconic Little Caesar sitting next to it.
Designed by Detroit-based architect SmithGroupJJR, the new $150 million, nine-story, 234,000 square foot building is located at the corner of Woodward Avenue and Columbia Street. It’s part of the new District Detroit’s Columbia Street neighborhood.
As we reported when the project was announced, the building will stand nine stories and have 234,000 square feet of space. Not to mention, pizza piece slice shaped windows.
Some of the amenities include:
- Work café, pantries, collaborative workspaces and informal meeting rooms
- Two-story lobby connected to a new Welcome Center
- Glass-covered, open air terrace
- Screening room and 425-seat training room
- Fitness center
- Retail and dining (think a company store like you would see in other big cities)
“Expanding our world headquarters campus will support the growth of every part of Little Caesars, from our employees, to our franchisees, to our customers,” said Little Caesars President and CEO David Scrivano. “As a Detroit-born and headquartered business, we’re proud to work with the ironworkers, architects and contractors from Detroit and Michigan to create this iconic headquarters building for our global enterprise.”
It’s scheduled to open in 2018.
