The monstrous modernistic wedge-shaped granite, glass, and limestone-trimmed building for 4,000 employees of Compuware, specialists in high-tech enterprise software and IT programs, anchors the north end of Campus Martius Park. In building here, Peter Karamanos, head of Compuware, attempted to fill the void left by the demolition of the J. L. Hudson Company Department Store and bring workers to downtown Detroit. The building holds office, restaurant, and retail space, and a large parking structure. The atrium features a full-height waterfall and water sculpture by WET Design.
