In the 1920s, American high society flitted about in a luxurious bubble. The birth of the first apartment hotels was the logical result of such a palace life. Upper classes could now take advantage of the diligent services of luxury hotel class in apartments they could rent indefinitely. In 1929, the 15 stories Lee Plaza was completed just in time, as the Great Depression was about to hinder the constructing fever of the time. It was considered Detroit's most prestigious residence.
