Comerica Bank has completed the move of their branch to the Penobscot Building in downtown Detroit from their former location at Washington and Fort. The 4,000 square foot location is open today.

Interesting little historical fact — Comerica’s predecessor, the Detroit Savings Bank, moved to the Penobscot in 1906. Now, if you’re confused, thinking the tower was built in the 1920s… you’re right. The Penobscot is actually an amalgamation of two buildings.

The first tower of the complex was built in 1905.

According to Comerica, the Penobscot building also housed the main office of Manufacturers Bank when the bank was formed in 1933. Manufacturers merged with Comerica in 1992.

The location is managed by Josh Smith. He joined Comerica 12 years ago.
