DETROIT — The Herrick Co. has acquired a 21-story office tower at 2025 Woodward Ave. in downtown Detroit for $150 million.

Locally based architecture firm Neumann Smith designed the 421,481-square-foot building, which was delivered in fall 2022 and acts as a headquarters for Huntington National Bank’s (NASDAQ: HBAN) commercial division. The bank fully occupies the property on a triple-net-lease basis. 

The building features ground-floor retail space, including a Huntington Bank branch; 10 floors of structured parking; a cafe; and a rooftop terrace with space for movies or sporting events to be projected on the side of the tower. 

The deal is the largest building acquisition to close in Detroit since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Crain’s Detroit Business. The seller was not disclosed.

Huntington acquired TCF Financial Corp. in 2020 for $22 billion. The combined company operates more than 1,000 branches in 11 states. The bank’s stock price closed at $11.42 per share on Wed. June 7, down from $13.10 one year ago. 

The Herrick Co. is a national real estate investment firm that has completed more than $6 billion in transactions. The company focuses on acquiring single-tenant buildings net leased to office, industrial and retail users, as well as undeveloped land sites in Southeast Florida.
