The abandoned Lee Plaza Hotel, Detroit Michigan. Taken last year on our Easter weekend Urban Exploration trip in Detroit. The Lee Plaza is a vacant 15-story high-rise apartment building located at 2240 West Grand Boulevard, about one mile west of New Center along West Grand Boulevard, an area in Detroit, Michigan. It is a registered historic site by the state of Michigan and was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places on November 5, 1981.

The interior contains 220 one to four-room apartments. The first floor has a main lobby with a coffered ceiling, east and west lounges, two wood-paneled dining rooms, and a ballroom. The main hallway was dubbed “Peacock Alley,” a barrel-vaulted space with a coffered ceiling covered in a rich color scheme of blues, golds, and greens. The basement originally contained a beauty parlor, a game room, a children’s playroom, and a meat market and grocer.

The place is now rotting away as time passes by.

Thanks for stopping
