Employment services company LinkedIn will be moving from its temporary work site to a 74,500 square foot space in the Sanders Building on Woodward Avenue downtown once renovations are completed next year. The first U.S. office opened by the company in 10 years, LinkedIn has quickly ramped up hiring to include 40 employees and they’re not finished yet.
The Sanders Building and neighboring Grinnell Building were designed by Albert Kahn and were purchased in 2016 by Dan Gilbert’s Bedrock real estate firm, who had this to say:
“LinkedIn’s move downtown is even more proof that Detroit’s tech scene is rapidly growing, bringing with it established companies and start-ups alike…In a very short time, the city has seen businesses including Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Quicken Loans, StockX, Detroit Labs, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest, Duo and dozens more leverage the amazing talent and energy Detroit has to offer.”
