We've had some tipsters ask us about work being done on the outside of Book Tower recently. Our own photographers took a few pictures as they saw it happening.
As reported last summer, Book Tower sold to Dan Gilbert's Bedrock for $30 million (our readers were very excited to see this building saved). Our friends at Historic Detroit also noticed the work outside - mystery solved!

@HistoricDET we're beginning the restoration and repair process. Don't worry- everything will be restored to its original glory!— Bedrock Real Estate (@BedrockRES) March 1, 2016
We look forward to seeing the progress of this iconic building!
