The iconic Fisher and Albert Kahn buildings in Detroit have sold for $12.2 million in an auction that ended Wednesday afternoon.
Built in 1929, the Guardian Building is one of the most ornate, unique and beloved skyscrapers in Detroit.
The Albert Kahn-designed masterpiece is covered in marble, brass and bronze and features hand-painted, barrel-vaulted ceilings, a theater and a golden tower.
The towering art deco David Stott Building in downtown Detroit was submerged in two stories of water Wednesday in what looks like yet another cautionary tale of abandonment.
The view from atop the city’s third largest building is breathtaking.
The red orb that towers 650 feet above the city will soon be lit up again.
The 15-story gothic-style building is owned by Detroit’s Downtown Development Authority, which has let the building rot while spending $285 million in public funds for a new Red Wings arena.
