150 West Jefferson (Formerly called the Madden Building) is a tall skyscraper in Downtown Detroit, Michigan. The building was constructed in 1987, and finished in 1989. It stands at 26 stories tall, with two basement floors, for a total of 28. The building's materials are plain concrete and granite, in a postmodern architectural design. The building stands at 150 West Jefferson Avenue, between Shelby Street and Griswold Street, and between Jefferson and Larned Street.

The high-rise building is primarily used as an Office tower, with a parking garage, restaurant and retail offices inside it. This building is connected to the rest of downtown Detroit by a station stop on the Detroit People Mover transit system built into the adjacent parking ramp. 150 West Jefferson sits on the former site of the Detroit Stock Exchange. Some of the facade of the old building was preserved and was used in the interior and exterior decoration of this building. This building is 444' 6" from its front entrance off West Jefferson Avenue. The back entrance off the podium on Larned Street actually sits 7' lower. Four flagpoles, each 30 feet (9 m) high, are located at each corner of the top of the slanted roof. Each displays an American flag; the four can be seen across the river in Windsor, Ontario.

The Financial District station of the Detroit People Mover system is housed inside the building.

The Detroit Office of Miller, Canfield, Paddock & Stone is currently occupies on the top floors of 150 West Jefferson. The Detroit office of KPMG is in 150 West Jefferson.[1]
