Fakten

  • The building was demolished at exactly 5:47 pm, October 24, 1998. 20,000 people watched as the building was imploded which turned the building into a 60 foot tall pile of debris.
  • Tallest building to ever be imploded.
  • The building measured 439 feet tall from its second basement to the top of the penthouse tower. It was also topped by 110 feet high flagpole.
  • The structure was the tallest department store/retail building ever constructed. It was also the second largest department store in the world after Macy’s in New York City.
  • The building was faced in deep-red brick, and trimmed with granite, terra cotta and limestone.
  • Walbridge/Jenkins, a partnership between Walbridge Aldinger and Jenkins Construction of Detroit, managed the demolition of the building.
  • The entire complex consisted of 34 floors: 4 basements, one of which held the Hudson Basement Budget Store, 23 above-ground retail floors, all of which was topped by a 6 story storage/mechanical penthouse.
  • In 2001, a 4 story 1,023-space underground parking garage was built within the building’s foundations. It was built to accommodate a future 12 story building. The garage was demolished in 2017 to make way for the mixed use Hudson’s Site project currently under construction on the site.
  • The store closed on January 27, 1983. J.L. Hudson, and later Dayton Hudson Corporation, maintained offices in the building until October 1986, when the building was vacated.
  • Hudson's featured 48 escalators, 51 passenger elevators, 8 employee elevators and 17 freight elevators, the largest of which could hold a semi-truck. It also had 705 fitting rooms, a world record at the time.
