The company will move less than a mile from 36455 Corporate Drive to the 35-acre site on the southwest corner of Drake and 12 Mile roads that Detroit-based Olympia Development has owned for more than 30 years.

The 200,000-square-foot complex will offer an "open environment" as well as a fitness center, cafe and coffee bar, according to a news release. The project also will have an onsite walking and jogging path and will preserve the woodlands and wetlands currently there.
