Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 29, 1989):
The Fisher Building (1927) contains some of the most beautiful detailing of any American skyscraper ever built. The Fisher brothers, part of the burgeoning automobile industry in Detroit, intended the building to be a public monument as well as a gift to a more beautiful Detroit. The architect, Albert Kahn, had a national reputation for his industrial buildings but was known in Detroit as well for his commercial, civic and domestic structures, and this skyscraper is one of his greatest achievements.

Condition:
Currently, there are no known threats to the building.

There are no changes since the last reporting period.
