Chemical Bank 20 Story Building at 2047 Woodward
New 20-story building to rise across from Comerica Park

Quote:
Early today, the City of Detroit announced that Michigan-based Chemical Bank will be the city’s primary banking partner. Soon after, the bank announced a major new build in Foxtown.

The bank announced that it would build a new headquarters in downtown Detroit at 2047 Woodward, at the intersection of Elizabeth Street near the new Little Caesars World Headquarters, the Palms Building (the Fillmore), and the Fyfe Building. The build is expected to take about two-and-a-half years and when completed, over 500 new employees would work from here. Until then, the bank will expand its current offices at 333 Fort Street to accommodate the employees.

The bank’s headquarters have been located in Midland, Michigan since 1917, and the bank states that the labor force there will not be reduced. Midland will continue to house its corporate operations center.

The corner site is currently a parking lot, with a building behind that will be demoed. According to the Free Press, this building is mainly used for parking.

Plans for the building also include retail, multiple levels of parking, and luxury condos. It will come in at about 240,000 square feet.

Is there a reason almost all parking is above ground in Detroit?

The collapse of Detroit meant that vacant land was cheap and plentiful.

Because Detroit has primitive transportation with most of the population in the suburbs compounded with the cost of putting all that parking underground. Detroit is making strides but it still has a long way to go

I really like the terraces up top but the parking deck is painful

Top of the building looks great, the lower half not so much with that parking garage in view. However the parking garage could get a lot of activity with Lions, Tigers, Red Wings, Pistons and Fox all within 5 blocks. Wonder if they will make that terrence available for Tiger games.

IDK why we're pretending most US cities don't have tons of parking and build lots of parking podiums and have a primitive transit with most people living suburbs, this is America, lets cut out the Detroit exceptionalism. Chicago has great public transit yet builds parking podiums by the dozen.

Hudsons, Monroe, Statler city are all going to have underground parking, this is really the only parking podium proposal other than the Ashton.

I was thinking the same thing. It seems weird to be making an issue of this right now when most major projects will include underground parking. The Little Caesars Headquarters just a block north didn't even add any parking. Hell, even most of the parking up in the 2,000+ units under construction in Brush Park will have underground parking. In fact, what makes this particular development weird is the inclusion of such a blatant parking podium. I suspect - or at least I hope - that any redesigns/revisions push parking to the back of the site; there is no reason why the parking for this building even needs to visible from Woodward.

I like this design a great deal, but I thought Chemical ceased to exist long ago when they merged with Chase?

Nice addition to Detroit

I think you're referring to the company that was HQ'd in New York. Officially, the name of that company was the Chemical Banking Corporation or also known as Chemical New York Corporation.

The main name of the bank referred to here in Michigan is Chemical Financial Corporation whose subsidiary is Chemical Bank (which it begun to use in 2006).

I suppose both companies got shorthand as 'Chemical Bank' over time and both have similar histories, but both are completely separate unrelated companies.

No new info since last summers announcement. I had thought I read somewhere a start in early 2019, but I can’t seem find that article now. Everything out there just talks about 2-2 1/2 year timetable for completion once they srart.

New rendering:



The refinements solved one of my biggest gripes about the original design, which was that apparently the garage was positioned on the site so that it was visible/open from Woodward, which is why they had to put that silly green screen up. They seem to have set it back from the street, which is how it should have been designed in the first place, so now we have a uniform facade at the front.

Not a beauty, but it's certainly better than what it's replacing and will fill in a whole in the streetwall.
