2 The Greater Penobscot Building, commonly known as the Penobscot Building, is a skyscraper and class-A office building in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. The architect Wirt C. Rowland, of the prominent Smith Hinchman & Grylls firm based in Detroit, designed the Penobscot in an elaborate Art Deco style in 1928.
