Chemical Bank to Relocate Headquarters to Downtown Detroit
DETROIT — Chemical Bank, which has been headquartered in Midland, Michigan, since its founding in 1917, is relocating to downtown Detroit effective immediately. The headquarters will temporarily operate out of the bank’s Detroit office, located at 333 Fort St., while awaiting a new 20-story building to be built at the corner of Woodward Avenue and Elizabeth Street. The move coincides with the city of Detroit’s announcement to name Chemical Bank as the primary banking partner for managing the city’s operating deposit accounts. Chemical Bank plans to add approximately 500 employees to its new Detroit office upon completion of construction. The 240,000-square-foot tower is expected to include street-level retail space, car parking, office floors and condominiums, according to the Detroit Free Press. A timeline for completion was not disclosed. Midland will continue to be home of the company’s corporate operations center. Chemical Financial Corp. is the holding company for Chemical Bank.
