“We are thrilled to welcome QStride to downtown Detroit. Their new location is next door to Amazon’s new regional downtown Detroit office, just a few blocks from Lear‘s new innovation and design center, the headquarters of online financial news startup Benzinga, and numerous others. QStride will have access to high-speed internet provider Rocket Fiber and the new M-1 RAIL which is expected to be fully operational next year.

Built in 1962, the 29-story One Woodward Building was the first skyscraper designed by Yamasaki, best known as the architect of the World Trade Center in New York City. The Mid-Century Modern style building is located at the gateway to Woodward Avenue at Jefferson Avenue, across from Hart Plaza, Detroit’s riverfront park. One Woodward is now 100% occupied.
QStride’s new headquarters, designed by Detroit-based interior design firm dPOP!, are within walking distance to numerous restaurants and retailers including: Townhouse, Roasting Plant, Central Kitchen + Bar, Moosejaw, John Varvatos, House of Pure Vin and many more. In addition, international retailers Nike and Kit + Ace are expected to open a few blocks away on Woodward Avenue during 2016, along with Avalon International Breads.
