Faits

  • The Coleman A. Young Municipal Center houses offices, courtrooms, and meeting rooms. The verticality of the tower section, with its strips of white marble, offers a distinct contrast with the 14-story office section, in which horizontal lines are emphasized.
  • The 14-story administration tower is 197 feet tall to the mechanical penthouse roof parapet.
  • A symbolic marble wall rising 43'-6.25" high stands 17' west of the Court Tower, and is connected to the Courts Tower by a canopy that forms the Woodward Avenue entrance.
  • Three sides of the building are faced in white Vermont marble, but the Randolph Street wall of the Administration Building is faced in brick which allows for future expansion of the building.
  • A 25-foot bronze statue at the flat end of the tower, formally named "Spirit of Detroit," is more popularly called "The Jolly Green Giant."
  • The 14-story portion called the Administration Tower holds offices for the City of Detroit and Wayne County, as well as doctor clinics, laboratories, a municipal library, and the City Council auditorium chambers on the 13th floor.
  • The 20-story portion of this complex is called the Courts Tower, and contains office space on floors 1 through 8, and courtrooms, judge chambers, and jury rooms on floors 9 through 19, with the 20th floor housing the building's mechanical equipment.
  • The building's basement caught fire after a lightning strike on June 27, 2008 ignited a transformer housed there. The building was closed for repair through July 8, 2008.
  • This is the tallest building built in Detroit in the 1950s.
