Construction on the Battle Creek Tower began on August 20, 1930, and was open to the public on June 20, 1931. Originally home to the Central National Bank, it was complete with modern features and was the first high-rise to be built in downtown Battle Creek. To preserve the history and significance of the Tower, a copper box time capsule was sealed inside a building cornerstone during the dedication ceremony in 1931.
When Roger Hinman purchased the 184,000 square foot, 21-story high-rise building in 2000, he transformed the top fourteen floors into luxury apartments. Floors one through seven remained Class A commercial office space. There are currently twenty-three apartments, all equipped with stunning views, underground parking, high-end finishes, and the use of a rooftop deck. Located within the Battle Creek Tower, The Hinman Company's property management office oversees both the apartments and office space.
Since its construction, The Battle Creek Tower has been a monument in the heart of downtown and is now listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
