English: The Book Tower is an Italian Renaissance Revival style high-rise tower in Detroit, Michigan.
  • Construction began in 1916 as an addition to the original Book Building, and finished a decade later in 1926.
  • Designed in the Academic Classicism style, it is 475 feet (145 m) and 38 stories tall (not including two basement levels), with two mechanical floors at the top encasing the green copper roof, a roofing style shared by the nearby Westin Book-Cadillac Hotel.
