The City of Southfield is the premier business address in Michigan. With more than 27 million square feet of office space and over seven million square feet of retail and industrial space – Southfield is truly Michigan’s undisputed business center. In fact, Southfield boasts more office space than the central business districts of Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, Indianapolis or Kansas City. Southfield is home to over 9,000 businesses including more than 100 “Fortune 500” companies. Why do so many companies chose Southfield? Simply put, because Southfield offers businesses advantages that others cities don’t. An impressive 98 percent of the City is accessible to high-speed fiber optics, broadband and satellite services, and several backbones traverse the community. The City’s extensive infrastructure, access to a footprint of citywide fiber optics and central location are just a few of the many reasons why businesses choose Southfield.
