750 Tower Drive, a vacant seven-story building, was identified as one of the
initial target buildings for overall improvement. Initial exterior and interior
upgrades included: parking lot resurfacing, roof replacement, exterior
painting, landscape upgrades, internal building system restorations, and
general maintenance and repairs. In an effort to increase building appeal
for potential clients, Friedman’s Construction and Design team remodeled
the three-story lobby with a more modern aesthetic in mind. The Zen-like
atmosphere incorporates an impressive water feature, enchanting birch
trees, exotic granite accents, contemporary architectural lighting, and
sleek, yet durable finishes warmed with rich wood details. New elevator
surrounds and doors completed the lobby renovation.
Magna International Inc., a leading global supplier of technologically advanced
automotive systems, initially leased 117,000 square feet of office
space at 750 Tower Drive with plans to add a technical center to the
building. Magna moved into floors five, six and seven in September 2013.
Friedman’s Construction and Design Team then completed build outs on
additional floors to accommodate the other divisions moving to the new
headquarters. During the renovation project, Magna decided to purchase
the building and commissioned Friedman to design and build a conference
facility, showroom, data center, and cafeteria and dining facility that is
serviced by Plum Market. As result of the outstanding service Friedman
provided throughout the entire renovation process, Magna continues to
look to Friedman for enhancements to their space both at this building and
others in the Metro Detroit region.
