The Fisher Building is a landmark skyscraper located at 3011 West Grand Boulevard in the heart of the New Center area of Detroit, Michigan. The ornate 30-story building, completed in 1928, is one of the major works of architect Albert Kahn, and is designed in an Art Deco style, faced with limestone, granite, and several types of marble. The Fisher family financed the building with proceeds from the sale of Fisher Body to General Motors. It was designed to house office and retail space.
The building, which contains the elaborate 2,089-seat Fisher Theatre, was designated a National Historic Landmark on June 29, 1989. It also houses the headquarters for the Detroit Public Schools and the studios of radio stations WJR, WDVD, and WDRQ.

  • GO SEE THIS!! Another amazing example of guilded age craftsmanship. The Geodesic panels to the archway sayings to the brass centerpiece that so many feet have shuffled across. There also is a great old underground hallway to The Cadillac Building entrance- which you can’t get into - but still super cool to see.
  • A jewel of a building to examine. Detailing & use of materials define a period of opulence and taste. It's hard not to feel heavy and happy to see something so well preserved.
