Ford To Lease ‘Transitional Work Space’ In Taylor, Michigan

Ford Motor Company today announced that it will lease additional “transitional work space” for some of its employees as the automaker continues to remake its Dearborn campus over the next decade.

Ford’s new, semi-permanent Ford offices will be housed in the Masco Corporation headquarters in Taylor, Michigan as that company prepares to move to the nearby city of Livonia. It will host nearly 1,000 Ford employees, starting sometime after Masco vacates the premises this June.

“As our campus transformation continues, we need transitional work space in close proximity to our campus,” says Ford Land Chairman and CEO Dave Dubensky. (Ford Land is the automaker’s in-house commercial real estate arm.) “Masco’s headquarters building offers the needed space and amenities for our employees, and it’s in close proximity to our Dearborn campus.”

The Masco building is a four-story, 416,000-square-foot office space with an indoor courtyard, full cafe, and fitness center. Ford will also lease Masco’s adjacent 140,000-square-foot retail space.

Last year, Ford announced an ambitious, 10-year plan to revamp both its Dearborn world headquarters and engineering campuses, in an effort to both update its aging facilities and co-locate most of its 30,000-some employees to two primary locations. Around the same time, news broke that the automaker had made plans to lease its first transitional work place: a former Lord & Taylor store at the Fairlane Town Center shopping mall.
