Ford Breaks Ground On $60-Million West Dearborn Development

Ford Motor Company today broke ground on a new, $60-million development in West Dearborn dubbed “Wagner Place.” When completed, the 150,000-square-foot space will have shops and restaurants on the first floor, with office space on the second and third floors, capped off with a rooftop patio.

Ford’s Wagner Place has been designed for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, with plenty of green space and good walkability. Around 600 Ford Global Data Insights and Analytics employees will be located on the site, which is within walking distance of Ford’s product development campus – a collection of buildings soon to undergo its own dramatic transformation.

Wagner Place is named after the historic, 120-year-old Wagner Hotel that currently occupies the property. Ford will incorporate the restored facade of that local landmark into the new development.

“Developing an urban office environment positions Ford to offer a work setting that will appeal to a new generation of employees,” said Ford Land CEO Dave Dubensky at the groundbreaking ceremony, where he was joined by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and Dearborn Mayor John B. O’Reilly. “Wagner Place supports our goals to create a more collaborative and inviting campus atmosphere for all employees.”
