The Coleman A. Young Municipal Center is a government office building and courthouse located in Downtown Detroit. Originally called the City-County Building, it was renamed for the former Detroit Mayor Coleman A. Young, shortly after his death in 1997.
The Coleman A. Young Municipal Center houses offices, courtrooms, and meeting rooms, and it serves as the City of Detroit government headquarters.

Three sides of the building's exterior are faced with white Vermont marble with black marble spandrel panels beneath the windows of the Courts Tower to emphasize the building's vertical lines. The brick of the Randolph Street facade was not covered with marble to allow for a more economical future expansion.

An enclosed skyway over Randolph Street connects to the Millender Center, Courtyard by Marriott. Entrance from the walkway to the third-floor level requires a security pass, and persons without a pass must return to the main floor entrance.

The building contains a library, a courthouse, and the city hall.

The Spirit of Detroit, a 25 feet (7.6 m) tall bronze statue by sculptor Marshall Fredericks, is located at the Courts Tower's marble wall element.
