Farmington Hills, Michigan (October 11, 2016) – Friedman Integrated Real Estate Solutions, one of the nation’s leading providers of commercial real estate services, has begun transforming the Galleria Officentre into one of Metro Detroit’s Class-A Premier office parks. Located at 100-400 Galleria, the Galleria Officentre offers an excellent location in the heart of the Metropolitan Detroit office market with proximity to all area freeways and easy access to several major traffic arteries including Telegraph, Northwestern Highway, and Twelve Mile Roads. Friedman began managing, leasing, and undertaking several ambitious projects at this four building Class A officentre in February. Friedman’s team is creating a high-end, urban environment in a prime suburban location with great accessibility, convenient and ample parking, and superior visibility.
Major interior improvements to the One Million square foot office park include a state of the art conference center, a video surveillance system, an automated door locking system, and two new full-service cafeterias. Creating stunning lobbies is Friedman’s trademark and the project of transforming Galleria’s lobbies into focal points are well underway. Every design detail has been carefully selected including; imported Italian ceramic tile, custom lighting, state of the art reception and tenant directory welcome areas, vast plantings, collaborative seating and meeting areas, music and wi-fi, and dramatic graphic walls creating an elaborate visual effect. These award winning designs will soon create new and positive energy at the Galleria Officentre.
The exterior upgrades include ‘must see’ modifications to the sidewalks, driveways, tree lined common areas, and courtyards. The entire officentre exterior has been redesigned with a new park that includes comfortable seating, piped in music and gathering areas. These modifications have transformed the exterior into a four season park-like setting replete with walking trails, bicycle racks, mature trees, and colorful flower beds.
With these renovations and upgrades, the Galleria Officentre will provide an unparalleled location and list of amenities for use by tenants and visitors alike. In addition, the tenants of Galleria can utilize our on-premises banking facility, dry cleaning pick-up/drop-off service, an amphitheater within the neighboring Star Theaters, and a covered executive parking garage, to name a few.
Leasing momentum has swung into full gear at Galleria with a 14% increase in occupancy in less than eight months from takeover. Friedman has welcomed new tenants including Sandler & Travis, MetLife and other major companies, recently leasing 125,000 square feet of office space at 300 Galleria. “We are thrilled with the renewed energy at Galleria, and we’re just getting started,” said David Friedman, President & CEO. “The upscale design will give the space a more elegant look and feel, allowing our tenants’ employees to be enthusiastic about coming to their workplace and working in a setting that corresponds to their creative and innovative work cultures. We know retaining talent is vital for our tenants and our goal is to make that easier by creating common areas and work spaces that are new, fresh, vibrant, and cool and that their employees will be proud of.”
Spaces available for lease range from 900 square feet to 100,000 square feet, with high-visibility signage facing Northwestern Highway and 12 Mile Road available for larger tenants. Galleria is an award winning corporate campus and home to many professional firms and fortune 500 companies.
Parks, city services, and ample parking are also contributing factors to the success seen in Southfield and at Galleria. Rochelle Freeman, Business & Economic Development Director of Southfield says, “the city boasts more office space than the central business districts of Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, or Indianapolis and is home to sound businesses such as BASF, Henry Ford Health System, Lear, and IBM.”
