Chemical Bank plans to demolish a 10-story building downtown to make way for a new headquarters.

The $104 million, 20-story headquarters will tower over its neighbors, the Fillmore Detroit and the Fyfe Apartments along Woodward Avenue. Groundbreaking is expected to occur in the next 90 days, Tom Wennerger, the bank’s chief marketing officer, told the Free Press.

The new headquarters will also be built on a surface parking lot facing Woodward.
