30 Photos Showing The Restoration Of Detroit

Detroit's comeback.

Posted on

When you see pictures of Detroit you're usually bombarded with images of broken-down houses and abandoned buildings.

But it's not all like that. There are good things happening and buildings are being repurposed, built, and re-used.

Here's some examples of that thanks to Google Maps and Detroit Urbex. Detroit Urbex currently has an amazing feature up about the rise, fall, and restoration of Detroit. Check it out here.

The Book-Cadillac Hotel Now

Built in 1917, the Book-Cadillac Hotel was mostly open until the mid-'80s. In the late 2000s the building was gut renovated and today stands as a Westin Hotel.

Correction: The Dequindre Cut Greenway was switched. Thanks for pointing that out in the comments. I love you all.
