Our Home Base

Detroit. The city that put the world on wheels. The birthplace of Motown. Michigan’s cultural and commercial axis. Where else would TR call home?

Outside our windows exists a collision of art, culture, people and opportunity. A hotbed of stories waiting to be told. Like every major city, Detroit has its challenges. But its resilience and response to adversity are what make it great. We’ve been happy to grow alongside the city from our former office in the RenCen to our new headquarters in Eastern Market. During that time, we’ve also seen the immense cultural and commercial influence the city carries outside Michigan. From Detroit, we’re equipped to make a global impact. Detroit will grow even more because of the people who call it home. We’re excited to be part of that community. As storytellers, there’s no better place to be.

We would love to connect. Give us a call at 313-393-1300.
