This week, JACK Entertainment announced that it is restoring the St. Mary’s school house located in Greektown in Detroit, and it will move its company headquarters, and 140 team members, from One Woodward Avenue to the historic building at 1041 St. Antoine Street in December.

“This is an exciting period of evolution for our company and relocating to Detroit’s vibrant entertainment district is a big step for us,” said Matt Cullen, chief executive officer for JACK Entertainment. “Our move will bring us closer to our 2,000 team members at our Greektown Casino-Hotel and affirms our long-standing commitment to the Greektown district. It also provides us with the additional space we need to accommodate our dramatic growth.”

The five-story, 29,000-square-foot former school building is connected to Greektown Casino-Hotel via a pedestrian skywalk. The space is currently undergoing a $7 million renovation to bring the long-vacant building back to life. The project architect is Neumann/Smith Architecture and the general contractor is Colasanti Group, both located in Detroit.

According to JACK Entertainment, its new home is designed to foster collaboration among team members while preserving and enhancing the building’s original architecture. JACK Entertainment will occupy the second through fifth floors, leaving the first floor for a future retail tenant.

JACK Entertainment, formerly Rock Gaming LLC, owns and operates the Greektown Casino-Hotel, which will be renamed JACK Detroit Casino-Hotel Greektown early next year as part of a rebranding effort for the new company. JACK Entertainment recently completed the transition of its Ohio properties to the JACK brand. JACK Thistledown Racino reopened in March, followed by JACK Cleveland Casino in May and JACK Cincinnati Casino in June.
