Southfield is a city in Oakland County of Michigan, United States. A part of Metro Detroit’s upscale office market, the city’s marque is a cluster of five golden skyscrapers – known as the “Golden Triangle” – that form the contemporary 2,200,000 square feet (204,400 m2) Southfield Town Center office complex with a Westin Hotel and a conference center. In addition, a 33-story luxury residential high-rise is separate from the complex. To the west, near the confluence of I-696/Reuther Freeway and M-10/Lodge Freeway, is the American Center. Southfield is an international city bustling with people from a rich array of cultural, racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds, including large Armenian, African-American, Jewish, Chaldean and Russian populations. Growing up in such an international environment helps make Southfield children “globally prepared” – knowledgeable about cultures, customs and traditions.
