The Fyfe Building is located at 10 West Adams Street, at the corner of Adams Street and Woodward Avenue in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. It faces onto Central United Methodist Church, and Grand Circus Park.
The high-rise building was constructed between 1916 and 1919, and is one of Detroit's oldest; it was designed by Smith, Hinchman & Grylls in the Gothic Revival architectural style. It stands at 14 floors, and has 65 residential units.
The building was named after Richard H. Fyfe, a Detroit merchant who made his fortune in the shoe trade. For many years it had a Fyfe shoe store at the retail street level and offices in the upper stories; at the time of its opening, the shoe store was the largest in the country. The building is now mainly used as a residential building, but has some retail and a bar at street level.
