Fakten

  • Touted as a fireproofed skyscraper, a fire broke out on the top floor of this building in 1915 which burned for two hours, but never spread beyond its origin.
  • This was Detroit's second high-rise to be constructed. It was demolished in 1962 to make room for the International-style 1001 Woodward.
  • From its completion in 1986 until 1909, when the Ford Building was completed, this was the tallest building in Detroit. It included a rooftop observation deck that cost a dime for a view.
  • This building included a roof-top observation deck offered unobstructed views for 12 miles in any direction. The cost of admission to the deck was a dime.
  • The roof of the building also served as a station for the United States Weather Service, where the observation deck patrons could view the meteorologists at work.
