Named for the famed Fisher brothers, those who are related to General Motors, the Fisher Body Plant, etc., this building is named for them. It was built on the edge of “Midtown” at the time designed so more skyscrapers could be built in-between Downtown and the Edge City it was being built at.
It was designed by Albert Kahn in 1928 in Art Deco Style. It was the first of three planned towers in the area, but the Depression once again derailed that plan.
It sits alive and well today, as the Fisher Theater hosts many a-concerts and plays, as business is strong in the Fisher Building. It’s an office tower and still houses offices today. Go check it out because it’s a not-miss lobby and interior and there are some great shops.
The building had it’s own parking structure, the first of its kind, 11-stories tall right next door so it was easier for people to park and go to work.
