The Breitmeyer-Tobin Building Local Historic District consists of a single building at the south end of the Broadway Avenue Local Historic District which was because it was designated as an individual historic building by the City of Detroit before the creation of the larger Broadway Avenue Local Historic District.


1308 Broadway, Breitmeyer-Tobin Building, 1905-06

Please read details about the building in the Proposed Breitmeyer-Tobin Building Historic District Final Report (local copy), which I recommend highly to anyone interested in Detroit's history.

My photos of the Breitmeyer-Tobin Building as a whole are below:

    
The Harmonie Centre Building (formerly Breitmeyer-Tobin Building), at 1308 Broadway (at the intersection of Gratiot and Randolph), Detroit. Designed by the architecture firm of Raseman & Fischer in 1905. Behind and to its right, sporting complimentary colors, is the somewhat less opulent Hilton Garden Inn, built roughly 100 years later.
