The Detroit Pistons will soon have a new practice facility to call home and CREW Detroit members and guests are invited to get a firsthand sneak peek. The building’s main purpose will be to house the franchise, but the goal is to also create a facility that will be a community hub in the New Center area.
Come check out the new 183,000 SF training facility and corporate headquarters for the Pistons. The project also includes a comprehensive sports medicine, treatment and rehabilitation facility managed by Henry Ford Health System and a private and public parking structure for both Pistons and Henry Ford personnel. Tenants Blink Fitness and Plum Market will be retail anchors providing foot traffic.
A project overview and highlights will be provided by the following speakers:
Mike Willaert, Executive Vice President, Detroit Pistons
Gordon Graham, Sr. Project Manager, Henry Ford Health System
Sam Ruegsegger, Project Executive, Christman/Brinker Joint Venture
The afternoon will conclude with refreshments and networking at the Northern Lights Lounge, located 1 block north of the project tour.
Please note: flat, closed-toe shoes are required for this project tour.
