The Wright-Kay Building was designed by architect Gordon Lloyd and constructed in 1891 as the Schwankovsky Temple of Music concert hall and instrument showroom. After the Schwankovsky Co. went out of business, the six-story structure of iron, brick and brownstone became the Wright-Kay jewelry store from 1920 to 1978. In 2011, the property was purchased by Bedrock and renovated by architecture firm Neumann/Smith. The second-floor fine-dining restaurant boasts corner windows overlooking an active intersection of Woodward Avenue and looking up the block to Grand Circus Park.
