Ironically enough, the Detroit Cornice and Slate building is not made out of slate.
The building housed the slate and metal fabrication business until architects William Kessler and Associates converted the structure into office space in 1974. The building's facade is made out of gavlvanized sheet metal. Recently expanded, the building now houses the offices of the "Metro Times" - a free weekly magazine about Detroit and Flood's Bar and Grill. Please scroll down.
