Located in Tech Town, New Center's burgeoning innovation and technology district, 6001 Cass is centrally located near major institutions and freeways in walkable neighborhood.
6001 Cass, located at the corner of Cass Avenue and York Street offers a variety of office and retail space.
Stage of Development
The historic second floor showroom is now coworking space.
On Community Engagement: A dedicated community meeting introduced residents to the early master planning of the 6001 Cass the and Antoinette development to gather feedback on the proposed projects. The development, located in and adjacent to the New Amsterdam Historic District, also received community stakeholder support for a historic commission hearing in which project plans were approved.
On Design Excellence: Originally, the vision was for architectural beauty to symbolize the beauty and stability of a Cadillac car itself. Today, the design ambition at 6001 Cass is to restore the building to its former glory while modernizing it to fit the needs of today’s collaborative and private work environments. Retail and gallery programming push the façade of the building to engage with the street.
