Boston Consulting Group opens offices next to Little Caesars Arena
Boston Consulting Group has opened its offices in a $ 70 million development next to Little Caesars Arena.
The international business strategy consultancy has moved its office in Troy to a 30,000 square foot office space at 2715 Woodward Ave. in downtown Detroit. It is the second tenant in the five-story building, joining law firm Warner Norcross + Judd, which moved in earlier this year.
The Boston Consulting Group, founded in 1963, provides consulting services in areas such as Know Your Customers, Price and Revenue Management, as well as Business and Organizational Objectives to various industries including Financial Services, Healthcare healthcare, education, automotive and nonprofit organizations.
The firm has offices in over 50 countries; his former local office was on West Big Beaver Road in Troy.
“The move to Detroit and the personalized floor plan will improve the working environment for our employees and be very well received by our business partners,” said Michelle Andersen, Managing Director and Senior Practice Associate at BCG Detroit, in a press release. “This new space will support our work as we expand our relationships, find new sources of value creation for our clients and give our team the chance to be a part of the incredible energy of Detroit.”
The building replaces a surface parking lot on Sproat Street and is located between Little Caesars Arena, which opened in September 2017, and Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business, which opened in August 2018. The project has created hundreds of construction sites and construction-related jobs for residents of Detroit and Michigan, according to Olympia Development of Michigan.
“Our stable and balanced approach to development continues to attract a variety of successful businesses that share our desire to be part of Detroit’s future,” said Stefan Stratation, vice president of development at Olympia Development of Michigan.
The building features floor-to-ceiling glass and has also improved indoor air quality and improved air / particle filtration and noise reduction, officials said. Detroit-based Christman-Brinker handled the construction of the building and Southfield-based Harley Ellis Devereaux was the lead architect.
Other projects Olympia Development plans to complete this year include the long-awaited redevelopment of the former 13-story Eddystone Hotel at Sproat and Park Avenue. The historic Italian Renaissance-style building opened in 1924 and closed in the late 1990s. The restoration of the former Women’s City Club at 2110 Park Ave is also expected to be completed this year.
