212 South Clinton Street, Michigan Bell/Ameritech Building, 1948
Classical Revival




One-story Classical Revival building. Features include brick walls in Flemish bond and stone detailing. The stone detailing is expressed in a stone foundation, a stone string course running above the windows, a stone table course at the termination of wall planes, an entablature door surround and window sills. Windows are six-over-six. The windows on the forward projecting arm of the building are embellished with sill and lintel panels to bring these units into greater visual sync with the entrance surround. The central window of the three embellished windows has a wood panel above the lower six lights that reduces the upper sash to three lights. This treatment is found on the north elevation window at the northwest corner. The building postdates period of significance.
