Ford Motor Company is expected to lease out a total of 220,000 square-feet from the Fairlane Town Center shopping mall in Dearborn, Michigan, to create a new space for engineers and development employees, according to Crain’s Detroit. Ford’s alleged new office space will encompass a 120,000 square-foot, two-story space formerly occupied by Lord & Taylor, plus 100,000 additional square feet in the nearby portion of the mall.

Plans for Ford’s Fairlane project were submitted to the city of Dearborn on March 10th, and the build-out is expected to start by the end of the year. The new space might help consolidate the workspaces of much of Ford’s 26,000-strong local research and engineering workforce, which is currently spread out among a five-building research and engineering campus, first developed in the 1950s.

An emailed statement from Communications Manager Dawn Booker of Ford Land Development Corp. – the automaker’s real estate branch – confirms the Fairlane Town Center plans. Ms. Booker said in the email: “We have held open space at Fairlane Town Center to support our future growth, including the new employees we have been hiring.”

The Fairlane Town Center space would be part of a 10-year, $1 billion plan to consolidate and modernize its research and engineering spaces, as reported by Crain’s Detroit in June of last year.
