Today, Huntington National Bank opened its Huntington Tower in Detroit at 2025 Woodward Ave. in the Detroit district. Located just south of The Fillmore, the office building will serve as the headquarters of Huntington’s Commercial Bank.

It is the first office tower built in downtown Detroit in over 30 years.

“This investment is more than a beautiful building in the heart of downtown Detroit,” said Steve Steinour, President and CEO of Huntington. “This is another symbol of our strong commitment to the community, as well as our dedication to colleagues in Huntington in Southeast Michigan. After a difficult few years due to the pandemic, this building will serve as a place where colleagues can come together again and connect, collaborate and innovate, and work together to better serve our customers and our communities.

The tower further strengthens Huntington’s commitment to southeast Michigan, as Huntington’s middle market business and Huntington Technology Finance are already based in Detroit.

The new 21-story building is a modern structure that offers flexible workspaces, state-of-the-art equipment and a rooftop terrace. The building’s design embraces the many distinctive and historic architectural styles of the surrounding landscape to project an image that contributes to Detroit’s remarkable skyline.

Each floor includes concentration areas such as private offices with enough visual and acoustic privacy for conversations with customers or employees. The design takes advantage of the best square footage facing Woodward Avenue for a collaboration zone, visible upon entering each floor from the elevator lobby. The open workspace around the perimeter provides ample access to natural light.

Featured amenities include a Colleague Cafe with on-site refreshments such as Starbucks, rooftop and 19th-floor patios that offer outdoor access, and a new branch slated to open in late October.

“We are fortunate to have outstanding business leaders in Detroit who are deeply invested in the success of our city and its people,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “We are truly fortunate to have Steve Steinour, Gary Torgow and Sandy Pierce, who have been integral partners in the revitalization of our city, especially at the neighborhood level. With Huntington’s opening today of the first high-rise office tower to be built in Detroit in 30 years, we see another level of their commitment.
