Facts

  • After 76 years of operation in the building, the Detroit Media Partnership sold the building to The Farbman Group in October 2001, who failed in finding a new use before selling it to Luke Investments of West Palm Beach in late 2008.
  • The craftmanship of Ulysses Ricci can also be found on the south facade of Cleveland's 820 Building.
  • In Spring 2003, the Detroit Free Press Building was added to a short list of possible sites to replace the circa-1922 Albert Kahn Associates, Inc.-designed Detroit Police Headquarters at 1300 Beaubien Street. This proposal never moved forward.
  • The building is adorned with bas-reliefs sculpted by Ulysses A. Ricci (1888-1960) of New York.
