More and more, downtown Detroit is where technology companies want to be in Metro Detroit.
The latest addition? Google.
According to a report being circulated by the Associated Press (CNBC link), a Google spokesman has confirmed that the Detroit area Google office is moving from suburban Birmingham to Detroit, along with 100 employees.
They expect to double the physical size of the office, which focuses on the automotive industry, from the current 17,000 square feet they occupy.
There’s no word on exact timing or where they will go.
Earlier this year, Microsoft pulled a similar move. Amazon also has a local office downtown.
Where would you put 34,000 square feet of Google employees in the greater downtown Detroit area?
