Here's What it Takes to Repair Penobscot's Glowing Orb

New, 3 comments

How does one repair the glowing red orb atop the 47-story Penobscot Building? For Free. Green Light Detroit will tackle the job at no charge because, as founder Todd Farnum told Motor City Muckraker, the opportunity alone is "something special." Farnum was unable to reach the partially burnt-out orb yesterday due to ice buildup on the 100' maintenance ladder, but he vows to get the job done once it melts.
