Dime Building

Formerly known as the Dime Savings Bank, the Dime Building was designed by renowned architect Daniel Burham and it was completed in 1912. This high rise building has stood the test of time in Downtown Detroit and is a proud part of Detroit’s skyline today. The Dime Savings Bank was adorned with a sky-lit banking hall that was separate from the office part of the building. Standing at 23 stories tall and with eight elevators spanning the massive building, the building is now used for retail opportunities, office space and restaurants. It was built with limestone accents in a neo-classical style. In 2002, the Dime Building received a $40 million dollar renovation.
