TechTown
Detroit, Michigan
Living
 Project

Creating an impact well beyond its physical space, TechTown bridges the gap between downtown, inner city, and the suburbs providing a central, Midtown Detroit innovation hub for local entrepreneurs. A forerunner in Detroit revitalization, our team transformed a local coworking space from a staid cubicle farm into a vibrant, flexible workspace, creating an epicenter for entrepreneurship in the city’s first business incubator. In addition to serving as technical and support facilities, the TechTown space fulfilled its owners’ inspiring vision, encouraging mutual engagement among tenants through social interaction. The 20,638 square-foot, first-floor renovation features a best-in-class conference center, flexible meeting spaces, and a reverse courtyard plan where natural light reaches core spaces. Since its redesign, the space has been fully occupied with an evolving set of 85 new business enterprises sparking interest and innovation in the community.

The Solution

“This space will become a hotbed of innovation, a dwelling for serendipitous encounters and a catalyst for the redevelopment of Midtown’s broader innovation district.”
