The Kales Building, originally named The Kresge Building, was designed in 1914 by famed architect Albert Kahn. It was constructed as the world headquarters of the S.S. Kresge Company and was hailed as one of Detroit’s most revered early skyscrapers. Its owner, Sebastian Kresge, was the founder of a chain of retail stores that later came to be known as K-Mart.
Its prominent Grand Circus Park location placed Kales in the heart of Detroit’s thriving new central business district. Due to the limited amount of artificial light available at the time, Kales was designed with enormous windows wrapping around the facade and flooding the interior with natural light. Kresge built a new headquarters in 1930 and vacated their landmark skyscraper. Thereafter, the building came to be a favored location of doctors and dentists, also containing a storefront pharmacy. The last of these tenants left Kales in 1986 leaving this striking edifice to fall into disrepair.
