Detroit Skyline

A panoply of Detroit skyscrapers.

 

Left to right:

Cadillac Tower plays host to the MGM lion

First National Building once had a cornice, but now only beige paneling

One Detroit Center is the city's tallest office building

Colorful Guardian Building peeks from behind First National

Chase Tower, conveniently labeled, is also called The Cube

Above Chase rises the cross-shaped Buhl Building

Penobscot Building with its aircraft beacon;

Bright green One Kennedy Square;

Compuware Building has open porches

 

Four of these buildings were designed by a single architect, Michigan's own Wirt Rowland (First National, Guardian, Buhl and Penobscot).
