Shorpy Saturday – Cadillac Square: 1902

By Jeffrey Buck

Cadillac Square continues to transform even in 2013, with the recent announcement of the 16-story office building by Schostak Bros. & Co. The building would be the largest undertaking since the renovation of the beloved Campus Martius Park and revamp of Cadillac Square Park.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Cadillac Square: 1902“:
