The antenna stands at 292 feet tall and the roof is 267 feet (81 m) tall. It was designed in the international style of architecture, primarily using concrete and glass. Originally a residential apartment building, it was converted to individually-owned condominiums in 1987.

Tower Plaza is the tallest building in Ann Arbor. Its height proved controversial and motivated the city to adopt a height limit soon after its construction.[1] It presents a solid face on each of its narrow ends.
