The station occupies the first two floors of a structure attached to the historic David Whitney Building. It is located at the intersection of Park Street and Woodward Avenue near Washington Boulevard, in the Grand Circus Park Historic District. Accessible by stairway only after the David Whitney Building closed in 1999, the station underwent a major renovation between August 2014 and June 2015 to make it ADA-compliant, to coincide with the reopening of the David Whitney as an Aloft hotel and apartments.
