The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit
MMI was part of the team that recently completed work on the exciting Book Cadillac building renovation, a massive $180 million effort to restore a building that had sat vacant for over twenty years in a vandalized and deteriorated state. In 1924, when the Book Cadillac building was completed, it was the tallest building in Detroit and the tallest hotel in the world. Built by Detroit’s famous Book brothers in the Italian Renaissance–style, the building offered 1,200 guest rooms and some of the most amazing interior spaces in the city. It was the supreme symbol of 1920’s Detroit’s wealth and optimism.
Now named The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit, it has reclaimed its position as Detroit’s premier lodging and social gathering destination with new and renovated hotel suites and condominiums on the upper floors and ballrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants and retail shops.
MMI was responsible for designing and preparing construction drawings for the striking interior and exterior signage package as well as for performing construction inspection/punch list for the hotel and condominium floors.
