Building
“The Guardian Building is a landmark U.S. skyscraper, located within the Financial District. Built in 1928-1929, the building is a bold example of Art Deco architecture, including art moderne designs. The building has undergone recent award-winning renovations. It was designated a National Historic Landmark on June 29, 1989, and the associated Detroit Financial District is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Guardian building includes retail and a tourist gift shop. FYI--The Guardian Building is on my top 10 un-touristy things to see and do in Detroit. ”
