Impressive and imposing, Cadillac Place dominates a full city block in central Detroit. Formerly known as the General Motors Building, the Cadillac Place was renamed after the french founder of Detroit, Antoine Laumet De La Mothe, Sieur De Cadillac. Today, it’s the destination for more than 2,000 State of Michigan employees, who swarm in and out of its noble bronze doors each weekday.
Initially established in 1802 as a fort that sits high above New York’s Hudson River, today’s U.S. Military Academy at West Point is renowned as one of the most elite institutions in the country. Home to over 4,000 students that study and train on campus every day, West Point’s entire central campus is a national landmark. Many buildings and monuments on this site were built in honor of U.S. military history. It also happens to be the site of one of AMBICO’s most notable projects to-date.
AMBICO is excited to share our latest case study covering our involvement in New York City’s East Side Access Project. East Side Access is a $10 Billion project that began in 2007 and will continue to 2022. It’s exciting to imagine this massive infrastructure project taking place fourteen stories beneath New York City’s streets. Picture a six-mile-long tunnel, subway stations and a rail hub all deep underground beneath Grand Central Station. The goal is to create a commuter rail system that will carry an estimated 160,000 people daily from Queens to Manhattan.
AMBICO was involved in the daunting task of retrofitting the Victory Building, a well-known piece of Winnipeg’s downtown core that was constructed in the 1930s. Named “The Victory Building” in 2005 to honor those who served their country in conflict and peacekeeping, it was originally created in order to inspire the struggling population of the Prairies during the great depression.
AMBICO Limited was delighted to play a key role in the renovation of the Sir John A Macdonald Building, a beautiful and highly regarded heritage property right in our home town, Canada’s capital city. If you’ve ever been to Ottawa then you might recognize this building just from its picture—it’s the Sir John A MacDonald Building, the former flagship branch of the Bank of Montreal originally built over 80 years ago.
