Fakten

  • The unique facade of this building is tiled in yellow and blue macotta, which are concrete blocks or tile with an enamelled metal finish.
  • This building is one of the finest examples of the streamlined Art Moderne style of architecture in the midwest United States.
  • Knapp's was bought by the L.S. Good & Company of Wheeling, West Virginia in 1970, and struggled until October 13, 1980 when the store closed its doors for good.
  • The Knapps Centre replaced the Downey Hotel at this site in the 1930's.
  • The State of Michigan vacated the building in 2002, entirely, when the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) was moved to the newer Constitution Hall just a few blocks to the west.
  • The building contains five full floors, but with a ground floor mezzanine. The roof includes a prominent 7,000 sq ft mechanical floor.
  • This building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 for its outstanding example of the Art Moderne style.
  • The building was expanded in 1949, adding extra retail space to the west side of the building.
  • After the store's closing in 1980, the building sat empty until 1986 when the State of Michigan renovated the building for state office use.
