Dark Tower


Northeast Commercial Services Corp., a real estate manager and developer, filed for Chapter 11 protection on May 24th. The company has been redeveloping the Book Building and the Book Tower.

APRIL 5th 2007

It has been reported that DTE cut of power to the Book Tower on Thursday due to non payment of bills over a lengthy period of time. Apparently, a notice was posted by DTE in February and nothing happened.

Building management notified tenants Wednesday afternoon that there would be a three-day power outage.
The New York City-based Pagan Organization purchased the historic building from the former local owner, Susan Lambrecht in the summer of 2006 with the intention of renovating the 36 story building and converting the top ten floors into condos.

Generators were brought in to power the elevators, but the rest of the building is without power.

I recently discovered the Book Tower on Washington Blvd. downtown, it is an amazing building. I think she is the most beautiful building in detroit.
