A piece of Detroit history was passed on to another auto executive this week.
Stellantis North America COO Mark Stewart bought the Fisher Mansion from former General Motors executive Dan Ammann for $4.9 million, making it the most expensive real estate sale the city has ever seen view, Crain’s Detroit Business reported Wednesday. The architect of the Palmer Woods mansion was George Mason, and his apprentice, Albert Kahn, designed, among other structures, the Fisher Building.

“They (new owners Stewart and Antonio Gamez Galaz) have long been passionate about its architecture and are excited to be part of the city’s renaissance by moving to Detroit,” a Stellantis statement read. “They look forward to preserving this piece of automotive history for years to come.”
The mansion has long-standing ties to the automotive industry. It was built for Alma and Alfred Fisher, one of the owners of Fisher Body Co., the world’s largest manufacturer of automobile bodies in the 1910s.
