This classic revival building was constructed in 1924 with the intention of providing space for Detroit's architects and allied firms; hence, the large A on the façade of this building. The Richard Marc and Marcus Burrows architectural firm played a major role in developing this building which was, when built, was about one mile north of Detroit's downtown business area. Apparently, the last architectural firm moved away from this building in 1940.
