Well, you may not have heard it here first, but Quicken Loans is moving downtown. There's been several announcements about this in the past few years and lots of speculation, but now it's official. Here's the deal:
- 1,700 Quicken Loans team members are moving downtown in mid 2010 as the first phase. Others will follow
- We're moving to several floors of the Compuware Building
- This is just the beginning of Quicken Loans' dedication to rebuilding Detroit. See Dan Gilbert's quote below
“We pledge to fulfill our commitment to the city. This is an interim
step that allows us to begin transforming Detroit into a high-tech hub
of business and ingenuity,” said company founder and chairman Dan
Gilbert. “Our goal is to develop a downtown headquarters once
construction financing becomes available for large-scale building
projects the likes of which we plan to undertake.”
