Further Developments in Warren After GM Invests $1 Billion in Tech Center

Further Developments in Warren After GM Invests $1 Billion in Tech Center

DURAND, Mich. – It wasn’t long ago that General Motors announced it would invest $1 billion in its Warren Technical Center, and now Warren is experiencing the benefits.

Further developments will erupt in Warren in light of GM’s $1 billion investment in the tech center, a 326-acre facility with renovations expected to be complete by 2018. Warren, a city of 135,000, will feel the positive effects of GM’s investment as a number of new amenities sprout up in close proximity to the facility, including:

  • 200 premium lofts neighboring city hall
  • Prestige Cadillac dealership
  • Five-star hotel across the street from the tech center
  • Specialty grocery store like Whole Foods Inc. or Trader Joe’s
  • Menards home improvement store

GM also plans to invest $35 million in the Detroit based advertising agency Campbell Ewalds 10-story former headquarters located nearby the tech center. The renovation will bring another 800 jobs to Warren.

In talks of further developments in Warren after GM’s $1 billion investment in its tech center, city officials have stated they expect $300 million to be invested in the Downtown Development Authority district, which is stabilized by the tech center.

A vehicle engineering center, design center, and research and development operations make up the tech center, which employs 15,000 to 20,000 workers. GM’s $1 billion investment is expected to produce an additional 2,600 jobs.

With GM’s investment spurring a number of developments, employees will have more living options and new amenities nearby. The developments will also serve Warren residents who don’t work at the tech center but are looking for a walkable downtown area to experience.
