For more than a century, this Albert Kahn-designed English Domestic Revival building has been a landmark in downtown Detroit. Originally known as the Detroit News Building, the structure has nods to its rich history with hand-crafted sculptures and artifacts from printing pioneers throughout every floor.

Just off the main lobby you’ll find Scripps, a beautifully updated boardroom. Scripps is a flexible, 521-square-foot room that can accommodate up to 16 people with boardroom-style seating and up to 24 people with theater-style seating.

The room is adjacent to the Pulitzer conference room, which is perfect for hosting a meeting or team-building exercise on one side and a meal on the other. With moveable furniture and several layout configurations, the room offers a wide range of uses to fit your needs.
