Co-working Firm Establishes First Detroit Outpost

CBRE represented landlord Unicorp National Developments in the lease of 21,091 square feet to Seven Co. at City Center in Detroit’s Troy, MI suburb. The space will be the Irvine, CA-based co-working firm’s first location in the Detroit market.

A CBRE team of Brendan George, Dan Morse and Jasper Hanifi represented Unicorp National. Bryan Barnas, Gary Grochowski and Paul Choukourian of Colliers International represented Seven Co., which operates under the Next7 brand.

“This tenant will be a wonderful addition to the building and the surrounding market in Troy,” said George. “There are very few co-working providers in this area, and Next7 will meet what has become a growing demand for office users.”

Located at 888 W. Big Beaver Rd. in Troy, City Center is a 297,530-square-foot property about 20 minutes north of Detroit’s CBD. In the past three years, CBRE has brought the building from 40% to 90% leased.
