About This File

Designed by Daniel Burnham, the Ford Building was one of Detroit's earliest skyscrapers, and the tallest building in Detroit from its completion in 1909 until 1913. The building's name isn't connected to Henry Ford or the Ford Motor Company. Rather, it was constructed as the headquarters for the Edward Ford Plate Glass Company. But the building's most famous tennant was Sanders, a legendary Detroit ice cream and candy company which operated a store on the ground floor from the 1920s to the early 1990s.

There are two versions available:

• Ploppable high-wealth commercial office
• Growable high-wealth commercial office

What a great building! It's a shame so much of Detroit's CBD is overshadowed by so many other elements of the city, because it really does have some wonderful architecture. I love the nightlighting here (as with most DarkNite items) but the only thing that's negative to me is the wealth--too many $$$ buildings make a city more difficult to work with. But I'm still D/Ling, LOL! Thanks for sharing, nofunk! :-D

what a perfect building.  Nice enough to be a bigger building in a smaller downtown, low key enough to use multiple times in a huge downtown without looking repetitive.  Just perfect!
