Detroit gains Chrysler Board

by David Zatz on

Chrysler can make a greater claim to being Imported From Detroit now, with the employees of Great Lakes Business Center and a new board room being used in Detroit’s Chrysler House (née the Dime Building).

Chrysler Group leased nearly 33,000 square feet of space, including the top two floors of the 23-story former Dime Building. The space houses nearly 70 employees from the Business Center and several other functions, a training room, a board room, and a kitchen.

The neo-classical Dime Building was built in 1912 by the Dime Savings Bank, and was designed by Daniel Burnham, who also created New York’s Flatiron Building.

Chrysler’s other Detroit operations are the Jefferson North and Conner Avenue assembly plants, and the Mack Avenue Engine Complex. The Company employs nearly 4,000 people in the City of Detroit. Nearby operations include installations in Sterling Heights, Warren, and other outlying areas.
