Detroit archdiocese completes move to new headquarters

February 18, 2015

The Detroit archdiocese has completed relocation of its chancery offices to a building in the Capitol Park district.

The central offices of the archdiocese, with 183 employees, now occupy leased office space on the lower floors of a high-rise building; the other floors are residential units. The archdiocese sold three buildings, including the former chancery, and cut down its office space form 150,000 to 44,000 square feet, in a consolidation of operations. “The move into our new chancery building makes tremendous financial sense to us,” said Archbishop Allen Vigneron. He added that the archdiocese was maintaining a presence in downtown Detroit, hoping to be part of a rebirth of the depressed city.
