As we gear up for Book Tower's historic reopening later this year, let's take a look at how far the building has come in the last seven years.

More details were released earlier this week about the reopening of the 1926 building. Bedrock purchased the building in 2015 and started the restoration in 2016. Details inside and out including marble, ceiling tiles, glass skylight, and the caryatids have been restored. Apartments will start pre-leasing in April, while Roost Apartment Hotel is expected to open this summer, along with dining options. 

Bedrock worked with ODA, Brinker/Christman, and Kraemer Design Group on the project.

Below you'll see below and after photos of Roost hotel rooms and apartments (the building was mainly offices before); intricate details unveiled in the ceiling tiles, green copper roof, and limestone exterior; and the impressive difference of the Book Tower in Detroit's skyline between 2015 and now.
