Designed by world-famous architect Minoru Yamasaki and built in 1962, One Woodward is a hallmark of Detroit’s skyline, and a testament to the city’s heritage and future as a business leader. The Class-A, 28-floor skyscraper was originally constructed to house the Michigan Consolidated Gas Company, and today, it’s home to leaders in Detroit’s financial sector, who help shape the local and national economy. Bedrock’s Architecture Team undertook its re-beautification, taking great care to preserve its architectural integrity, as a U.S. Historic district contributing property.
One Woodward’s iconic entrance sculpture, Passo di Danza, was designed by Italian sculptor Giacomo Manzu, who had previously completed work at St. Peters Basilica in Vatican City. The sculpture’s name translates to “Step of the Dance,” and it symbolizes the first step in what Yamakasi considered a test design for his future construction, New York’s World Trade Center. Overlooking the Detroit River and the International border to Canada, One Woodward provides upscale office space with incredible panoramic floor-to-ceiling views. Current tenants include Quicken Loans, Kitch Drutchas Wagner Valitutti & Sherbrook, Jack Morton Worldwide, Fifth Third Bank and Detroit Regional Chamber.
