Ahh, the warmth of the sun.

The Guardian Building is a skyscraper at 500 Griswold Street in downtown Detroit, Michigan. The Guardian is a class-A office building owned by Wayne County, Michigan and serves as its headquarters. Built in 1928 and finished in 1929, the building was originally called the Union Trust Building and is a bold example of Art Deco architecture, including art moderne designs.[3] At the top of the Guardian Building’s spire is a large American Flag, complementing the four smaller flags atop nearby 150 West Jefferson. The building has undergone recent award-winning renovations. It was designated a National Historic Landmark on June 29, 1989,[1] and it is part of the Detroit Financial District. The Guardian building includes retail and a tourist gift shop.
