Book Tower, with all the communications equipment on the top. It might not be pretty, but it provides extra income so that the owner can make further improvements to the building.

Book Cadillac Hotel. Let's hope the city can finalize the deal to get this renovated.

Washington Boulevard Apartments. The roadwork seen in the pic will return Washinton Boulevard back into a boulevard. In the 1970s, half of the street was turned into a pedestrian mall, which instead of helping to revitalize the area, ended up hurting the businesses, all of which eventually closed.

And now we're back to where we started: the Renaissance Center. I hope you enjoyed the tour!

I was really pressed for time. Consequently, my tour didn't include a very large portion of downtown. Hopefully I can make it downtown this weekend to take some pics of the areas I didn't take pics of.

Yeah, I need to cross the border & take some pics from the other side one of these days. Actually these aren't from today though, they are from February 27. I'm just now getting around to posting them. LOL. Today was a very nice day to take pics though. I wanted to go take some, but I didn't really have time :(.

Penobscot is one of my favorite buildings. It can't beat the Fisher Building though, IMO. I didn't get to go by the Fisher Building, as it is quite a ways away from downtown. The Guardian Building is also one of my favorites. The lobby is awesome. Unfortunately I ran out of time to go take a pic of it. I need to get back there to finish my photo tour soon. Unfortunately the weather lately hasn't been cooperating with me, so I haven't gone back yet. I'm still hoping that it might cooperate this weekend though.
