The book tower elevators directly face the south wall?

    Oh and yeah this looks amazing pure Detroit grandiosity!
    If you look really closely in the satellite view of Google maps, you can see where it is.

    Basically, the midrise building (not the tower) is built in the shape of a capital letter H if looking at down from the sky. The atrium is located in the upper gap of the H. The elevators are in the horizontal part of the H. Thus, the elevators are for the midrise, and the atrium runs north-south with the elevators shown on the south side of the atrium.

    Seeing the atrium in person is going to be amazing. I cant wait.

    I think that the Free Press article is very misleading.

    There is the Book Building... and the Book Tower. Well they're call it the Book Tower as one complex... but the oval rotunda skylight area is within the 17 story Book Building, and not the 38 story portion known as the Book Tower.

    So the spacious lobby of the Book Building is larger than the lobby of the Book Tower. That article doesn't help... and neither does a Google search.

    It would have made more sense if they showed us the 2 lobbies separately. I'm not even sure if they showed us any part of the Book Tower lobby.

    Basically, the midrise building (not the tower) is built in the shape of a capital letter “H” if looking at down from the sky. The atrium is located in the upper gap of the “H”. The elevators are in the horizontal part of the “H”. Thus, the elevators are for the midrise, and the atrium runs north-south with the elevators shown on the south side of the atrium.
