Fisher Body Plant 21

Glass and concrete building designed by Albert Kahn. 

Designed by noted architect Albert Kahn, Fisher Body Plant 21 was built for The Fisher Body Company in 1919. 

General Motors and Fisher Body merged in 1926, and General Motors eventually closed Plant 21 in 1984. Despite it’s appealing location and over a million dollars in cleanup, the site is still considered contaminated by the EPA and while available for purchase and renovation has not found a buyer.
