SANTA MONICA, Calif. — September 10, 2014 — Premier car-shopping website Edmunds.com today announced its move to take part in Detroit's downtown renaissance by opening a new 5,000 square-foot satellite office at 150 West Jefferson, one of only two Class A+ towers in the area. The location serves as a base for regional meetings and collaborations for the nearly 100 Edmunds.com employees based throughout the eastern United States.
"The opening of our new downtown location shows our renewed commitment to Detroit, the heart of the auto industry," Edmunds.com CEO Avi Steinlauf says. "We were inspired by Dan Gilbert's revitalization work and the enthusiasm Quicken Loans employees have for the city's resurgence. Our Detroit-based employees are very excited to be a part of the downtown Detroit renaissance."
Previously located in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Edmunds.com's satellite location is home to about a dozen employees. The new space features an open office design created by Chris Mitchell of M+M Creative Studio. The office mirrors the vibrant color blocks and modern design of Edmunds.com's award-winning headquarters in Santa Monica, home to approximately 500 of the company's employees.
