Genesee Towers was characterized by strong vertical lines. This effect was created by light-colored piers alternating with bands of darkly-tinted window- and spandrel-glass.
This was the tallest building in Flint from its completion to its demolition.
The building consisted of a 10-floor office section that overhanged 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.
On December 22, 2013, the building was imploded.
