Project Description



Looking to join the exciting, evolving work environment currently developing in Detroit, the New York City based co-working space company, WeWork, settled on two high profile downtown locations: three floors at 1001 Woodward Avenue and seven floors at 1449 Woodward Avenue.

Within its unique restoration, the 100-year old historical building blends co-working spaces with private offices, and common areas with conference rooms, all while offering direct access to the heart of downtown’s renaissance without a costly investment by tenants.

Challenges typical to century old buildings arose while restoring these spaces such as uneven floors and outdated structural designs, however, by integrating historical details with modern decor through the use of glass, exposed ductwork, hardwood floors throughout, and pre-finished aluminum storefronts, Neumann/Smith exceeded the standards in order to create a space that corresponds with WeWork’s various locations around the world.
