Albert Kahn Building

The Albert Kahn Building was funded by the wealthy Fisher brothers and designed by legendary Architect Albert Kahn, for whom the building was named. It is built in the same style as and connected via underground tunnels to the nearby Fisher Building, which itself was funded and designed by the same people. The Albert Kahn Building was not designed to be opulent and innovative. Instead, it mirrors the elegance of the Fisher Building in a more subtle way. The building holds only offices, though Saks Fifth Avenue occupied the ground floor from 1940 to 1980. The Albert Kahn has been newly renovated as of October 2021, with 200 affordable housing units being added.
