The Book Tower in Downtown Detroit, a 476-foot-tall, 38-story skyscraper located at 1265 Washington Boulevard, has perhaps the most ornate exterior of any building in the Motor City. But, for years, the Italian Renaissance-style building with the copper roof was considered one of Detroit’s worst eyesores.
That’s all changed, since Dan Gilbert’s Bedrock real estate firm purchased the building in 2015. Today, The Book Tower — named almost 100 years ago in honor of the famous Book Brothers of Detroit — is one of the finest examples of the City’s resurgence.
