Lofts, entertainment venues to breathe new life into Broderick Tower

It's been nearly-vacant for almost three decades, but if things go as planned, Downtown Detroit's Broderick Tower will be filled with new residents and businesses in just a few years.

In 1997, Madison Heights-artist Robert Wyland painted the 108-foot whale mural on the building's exterior

Witherell Corporation, owner of the 34-story building, announced last October that it hired Ann Arbor-based construction firm JC Beal to redevelop the interior of the structure. The 1928 building was designed by famed Detroit architects Paul and Louis Kamper.

Plans call for 125 loft-style apartments. Five floors of the building will serve as office space and entertainment venues.

The David Broderick Tower is
located at the corner of Witherell and Woodward in Downtown Detroit. Visit for more information.
