DETROIT, April 16, 2024 ~ General Motors made a long-rumored but seismic announcement Monday that the automaker will be moving its headquarters from the towers of the Detroit Renaissance Center to the new Hudson Building tower owned by billionaire Dan Gilbert, creating an uncertain future of Michigan‘s tallest building.

GM CEO Mary Barra, Gilbert, and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan appeared at a press conference to make the announcement, with the move coming at a time when workplace models are changing and the company is reducing its real-estate footprint. The city, GM, and Gilbert’s real-estate firm Bedrock will collaborate on renovating the building currently owned by GM, which may include retail, residential, or mixed-use, Barra said.
