state-of-the-art training + sports medicine facility welcomes community
The Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center is a new, comprehensive sports medicine, treatment and rehabilitation facility. The 100,000 SF facility is also the new training and HQ for the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons' move to the new building in October completes their return to downtown Detroit. State-of-the-art amenities include an innovative player locker room and lounge, full-service kitchen/dining facilities, spacious weight room, hydro + cryogenic treatment systems, green space and courtyard locations for outside access, private + public parking structures, and a dedicated Henry Ford Health System Sports Medicine Building that will be connected to the performance center via a covered walkway.
Located two miles north of Little Caesars Arena in the New Center area, the dense urban neighborhood currently lacks robust community services and amenities. An overarching goal of the Pistons was to make the facility welcoming to the neighborhood and Detroit community. This strategy is leading the trend toward performance centers emerging as community assets and catalysts for development. Twenty-five thousand square feet of leasable, ground level space is available for community businesses. Blink Fitness and Plum Market have signed on as tenants. In addition, a variety of spaces are available for community events, youth basketball clinics, and wellness programming.
