Excerpt:

The Michigan Department of Human Services will move about 400 people into downtown Pontiac, leaving its current quarters near Great Lakes Crossing.

The
state agency has leased 47,000 square feet in the Ottawa Tower building
at 51111 Woodward Ave., said Michael Dudash, vice president of
brokerage services at Troy-based Hayman Co., the leasing agent for the building.

The state was represented by Jones Lang LaSalle, he said.

As
the first significant lease for the 200,000-square-foot Ottawa Tower
building, Dudash hopes the deal will create some momentum for the
Phoenix Center area of Pontiac.

“It’s excellent, both for the building and also for the city,” he said. “It’s an infusion of people to the downtown area.”
