WARREN, Mich. (AP) - The General Motors Technical Center in suburban Detroit has been designated as a national historic landmark.

U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis announced the designation this week for the site in Warren. It’s one of nine newly designated national historic landmarks.

Also known as the GM Tech Center, the campus was designed in the early 1950s by architect Eero Saarinen. About 19,000 employees and contractors work at the site, which was the first of several suburban corporate campuses that Saarinen designed.

The National Historic Landmarks Program, established in 1935, is administered by the National Park Service on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior.
