Flint’s first and most prominent Art Deco high rise was designed by Smith, Hinchman & Grylls, now SmithGroup. Art Deco took on a distinct character of its own in America. Utilizing the latest advances in technology and materials, the style was hallmarked by geometric shapes and streamlined simplicity. The extent of the Art Deco influence can be seen in everything from the stylized limestone reliefs to the interior handrail brackets.
