“If You Build It, The Corporate Headquarters Will Come”

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

Well, it’s not quite like the iconic baseball movie Field of Dreams … it’s not a cornfield in Iowa, but the land here in the City of Auburn Hills maybe just as fertile.

The parking lot has been set and building foundations have been staked

Construction is underway on a new 137,560 square foot speculative industrial facility located directly across from Continental Automotive Systems.  The 9.28 acre parcel is situated east of Continental Drive, between Harmon Road and N. Atlantic Boulevard.

Magnum Industrial Building Company decided to begin the $9 million project without a signed tenant due to the strength of the industrial market in Auburn Hills.  The building shell and parking lot are expected to be complete before the end of the year.

Based on the history of our community, there’s no doubt that a new corporate headquarters “will come” once built.
