  • This is my favorite building in Detroit. Its so gorgeous! Did you know Detroit is the only City in America to Win City Of Design! That's an international award. Seriously Amazing!
  • Surely one of the gems of Detroit architecture. I try to make it a point to bring visitors to the city into the stunning lobby to showcase how beautiful the city can be, rather than the gritty depictions in the media. It's also a good spot to get some coffee or Detroit souvenirs and take in the atmosphere.
  • Stunning building! I almost always take out of towners here to acknowledge the fine architecture Detroit has to offer. There are weekly free guided tours of the building as well. There's a cafe, Bank of America, and Detroit themed gift store on the public /first level. This is definitely a must see stop on a downtown tour for visitors.
  • Gorgeous old building. High vaulted ceilings with beautiful tiling in the lobby entrance area. Also, recently opened an event space up on the 32nd floor that is very nice and has great views in every direction.
  • My favorite building in detroit. Good coffee at the cafĂ©.
