Campus Martius is quite possibly one of the greatest urban spaces ever created!

The tallest one has been renovated since that picture was taken. The entire backside (what you see) has changed. The fire escapes have been removed (I'm not sure if they are being replaced or if they are even needed anymore). The brick has been power washed, and the windows have been replaced.

Here is a Google Maps Streetview of the backside during the renovation.

And if you're interested in seeing the front of the buildings.

It certainly doesn't look as bad as I had envisioned. Well done.

People tend to overstate the worst aspects of everything.
