There are so many kinds of buildings in Detroit, especially Downtown. The city has tons of history, and it’s all around, new buildings mix with old buildings.
There are a few buildings in Downtown, and one outside of Downtown, that I especially love.
One website has plenty of information on some of these buildings. HistoricDetroit.org is run by a good friend, Dan Austin, who loves the city of Detroit and it’s buildings. He even has his second book coming out called Forgotten Landmarks of Detroit.
Some of the wonderful buildings in Detroit, at least in my mind, are older buildings.
The Guardian Building
The Penobscot Building
The Broderick Tower
Detroit Free Press Building
Old Wayne County Building
Grand Army of the Republic Building (GAR)
David Stott Building
David Whitney Building
and two outside of Downtown Detroit in Corktown and New Center,
Michigan Central Station
These buildings are what I will be blogging about this semester. Videos, pictures, and some write-ups on them.
