Faits

  • The Penobscot Building was Detroit's tallest building for nearly half a century until the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center overtook it in 1977.
  • The Smart Detroit Conference Center occupies space on the 13th floor, and includes Class A conference, meeting, or convention space.
  • When built, this was the tallest building in the world outside New York and Chicago.
  • It was the 8th tallest building in the world when it was completed and 4th tallest in the United States.
  • Clad in Indiana limestone with a granite base, it rises like a shear cliff for thirty stories, then has a series of setbacks culminating in a red neon beacon tower.
  • Ornamentation follows American Indian motifs, particularly in the entrance archway and in metalwork found in the lobby.
  • The building was designed by Wirt C. Rowland of the leading Detroit architectural firm Smith, Hinchman & Grylls.
  • The old framing elevation drawing of this building list is as being 562'-2" to the highest roof, approximately 565'-8" to the parapet wall around the roof, and 654'-2" to the top of the warning beacon atop the antenna.
