The Michigan Building

The Michigan Building is an office building and the former Michigan Theater in downtown Detroit, Michigan.[1][2][3] It was constructed in 1925 and stands at 13 floors in height. Today it contains a bar, restaurant, retail space, office space, a parking garage, and the shared coworking space Cowork at The Michigan.

The high-rise was constructed in the Renaissance Revival. The exterior of the building is faced with brick with terra cotta and granite accents. The ground level contains retail space with large windows still framed by the original decorative metal work.


I visited this amazing piece of history with a long time friend and brand new friend from New Zealand. We snapped a few pics, went across the street and had a couple shots of whiskey out of real shot glasses, had a few laughs, then went on our way. I will never get tired of shooting Detroit architecture.
