Little Caesars and Olympia Development broke ground today on the $150 million, nine-story, 234,000 square foot, Little Caesars world headquarters expansion at the corner of Woodward Avenue and Columbia Street. Twenty-seven years after moving its headquarters from the suburbs to Detroit’s Fox Office Center, Little Caesars is more than doubling the size of its current campus in Detroit to accommodate the company’s global growth and hiring.
Yes, there will be 14-foot-tall glass slices facing Woodward.
The building should be ready sometime in 2018.
The design and workplace amenities were determined by work groups of employees and architects to ensure a flexible work environment to increase employee engagement, communication, and productivity.
Anticipated features include:
- One of a kind, formed-glass façade in the shape of 14-foot tall pizza slices
- Glass-covered, open air terrace and "pizza garden" with vegetables and herbs
- Two-story lobby connected to a new Welcome Center
- Screening room and 425-seat training room
- Fitness center
- Retail and dining
- State of the art training facilities for franchisees, crew and employees
- Innovation kitchens (quadruples the size of current facilities)
Also part of the plan is to make Columbia Street as a lively, festive place where people can gather before games or concerts.
The project is led by Brinker-Christman, a Detroit-based company as construction manager, and Detroit-based architect, SmithGroupJJR.
