BBG has relocated its Detroit office from the city’s western suburbs to the Brush Park historical district. The company will operate from a two-story, 9,000-square-foot building at 42 Watson St., becoming the first national commercial real estate valuation firm in the city’s Midtown District. The Detroit office is one of more than 25 BBG offices nationwide.

Our strategic move to Midtown reinforces our ongoing commitment to become part of the continuing redevelopment of Detroit,” said Senior Managing Director Marc Nassif, in a prepared statement.

The live-work property was once the site of a 100-year-old auto garage. The first floor offers parking and updated office space, while the second floor comprises several residential units with updated bathrooms and kitchens, as well as laundry services.

The other tenants sharing the building are two commercial real estate companies. Together, they are expected to bring more than 100 jobs to Detroit’s urban area. In addition to the three businesses, the first floor will also host The Second Best Bar, which will transform 2,300 square feet into restaurant space.
