Facts

  • Genesee Towers is characterized by strong vertical lines. This effect is created by light-colored piers alternating with bands of darkly-tinted window- and spandrel-glass.
  • This has been the tallest building in the Flint since its completion.
  • The building consists of a 10-floor office section that overhangs a lobby level atop an 8-floor parking garage.
  • The builing was largely vacated in 1997, when the National Bank of Detroit moved out, and was bought by Kumar Vemulapalli in that year. A dilapidated pipe in the building flooded the structure in 2001, and the building was totally vacated in 2002.
  • In 2004, the city condemned the structure, altogether, and by November of 2007 the streets surrounding the tower were closed due to the risk of concrete falling from the dilapidated tower.
