FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) — "Hundreds" of new construction jobs are available to metro Detroiters as Mercedez-Benz announces plans for a new state-of-the-art office building in Farmington Hills.
Detroit-based Olympia Development of Michigan and Mercedes-Benz Financial publicized the plan Tuesday.
The new Class A office space will become headquarters for Mercedes-Benz Financial Services USA and regional headquarters for Daimler Mobility Americas.
Pending approval from the City of Farmington Hills, the new complex will be located on a 35-acre parcel of land on the southwest corner of Drake and 12 Mile roads.
The new, three-story, ground-up headquarters will encompass 200,000-square-feet, and include an open environment, technology-forward design to encourage collaboration and will offer amenities such as a fitness center, cafe, coffee bar and more.
The site boasts proximity to several retail and dining options, along with access to local highways such as I-696, I-96, M-5 and M-10.
This project brings together two longstanding, committed community partners to invest in Farmington Hills, which has proudly been our home for more than a decade. Identifying the ideal, local solution was a priority, reflecting our commitment to the talented team that is the basis of our success. Furthermore, this build-to-suit approach will create a space that allows us to continue to cultivate our great corporate culture, inspire creativity and improve productivity, ultimately enabling us to best serve our customers in this new era of mobility.
The project will also feature an onsite walking and jogging path and will preserve the woodlands and wetlands currently on the site. It’s anticipated that construction will begin in the fall 2019, with completion estimated for summer 2021.
