General Motors (GM) is set to relocate its headquarters to a new location within downtown Detroit in 2025. After more than two decades at the Renaissance Center along the riverfront, the automotive giant is making a significant move to a sleek high-rise named Hudson’s, slated to become Detroit’s second-tallest skyscraper.

CEO Mary Barra emphasized the importance of Detroit as GM’s home during a press conference, highlighting the new headquarters’ features such as collaborative spaces, event hosting areas, and vehicle displays. This shift underscores GM’s commitment to the city, where it stands as the only member of the Detroit Three automakers with its headquarters situated within the Motor City itself. Ford Motor’s headquarters is nearby in Dearborn, while Stellantis, parent company of Chrysler, has its main North American office in Auburn Hills.

The GM headquarters, marked by its iconic logo atop the towers, has been a prominent feature of Detroit’s skyline since the company acquired the property in 1996. This move to the Renaissance Center was pivotal in catalyzing a revitalization of downtown Detroit, according to the company.

GM’s partnership with real estate firm Bedrock, led by billionaire Dan Gilbert, along with collaboration with the City of Detroit and Wayne County, underscores a strategic approach to redevelopment. The automaker has secured a multi-level lease for office space and showcase areas at the new Hudson’s building, though specific financial details remain undisclosed.

Despite the flexibility afforded by remote work during the pandemic, GM has implemented a policy requiring employees to be in the office three days per week. This move signals a continued investment in physical workspace, complementing GM’s existing technical center in Warren, Michigan.

As GM prepares for this transition, the relocation symbolizes not only a change in physical location but also a reaffirmation of its roots in Detroit, a city synonymous with American automotive history.
