Downtown Detroit’s essential architecture: A walking tour

Lace up your walking shoes or hop aboard the People Mover. It’s time to take a tour of the major buildings in Downtown Detroit. We did a similar map a few years ago, and we’re happy to say that some of the buildings people feared would be demolished are either renovated or in the process of renovation. We included the major buildings from the riverfront to Grand Circus Park.

We didn’t include all of our favorites, just the most recognizable. The Penobscot stands tall in the skyline, as does the Ren Center and One Detroit (or Ally Detroit). While others, like the Guardian Building and the David Whitney, have some of the most beautiful lobbies in the city.

If you find yourself in Capitol Park or Harmonie Park, we have separate maps for those areas, which are both seeing a surge in renovations.

Time to head out and explore the city! Did we miss your favorite? Let us know in the comments or the tip line.
