In Pictures: Historic Hotel Eddytsone – Detroit

By - Thursday, March 20th, 2014

The Hotel Eddystone was designed by Louis Kamper, famed locally for his building “The Book Cadillac Hotel”. The Eddystone was abandoned in the 1940’s. In 2007 it was set to be a new location for 60 condominiums and ground retail. As most large projects go in this city, it was abandoned. It became a homeless shelter at one point.The famed hotel (1 of 3) built by Kamper all on one block are now sitting center in the plans for Detroit’s new hockey arena. The fate remains unknown for now if they will be redeveloped or demolished. For now, they sit perfectly appointed in Cass Corridor surrounded by nothing with beautiful views of Downtown and every side of this hotel is covered in graffiti of all kinds creating a strange mix of elegant Italian renaissance architecture and modern street art, much like the rest of Detroit.
