This isn’t your typical parking garage.
“The Z” is a behemoth, mural-splashed, 10-floor parking garage that can accommodate 1,300 vehicles in downtown Detroit.
Graffiti artists from around the world were hired to paint colorful murals on the white building at 1234 Liberty Street. The building zigzags from corner of Library and Gratiot and Broadway and East Grand River.
The result is breathtaking.
The garage, which opened earlier this year and replaced a parking lot, was created by Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert’s real estate company, Bedrock Estate Services.
