Grand Park Centre (also known as The Michigan Mutual Building) is a high-rise office building in downtown Detroit, Michigan, located at 28 West Adams Avenue, at the corner of Adams Avenue West and Woodward Avenue, standing across from Grand Circus Park in the Foxtown neighbourhood. Nearby buildings and attractions are Grand Circus Park, Comerica Park, Ford Field, the Dime Building, and Campus Martius Park. The building is a part of the Michigan Mutual Liability Company Complex, with the Michigan Mutual Liability Annex. The building is located in the Foxtown neighbourhood of Detroit.

Grand Park Centre was constructed in 1922 and stands at 19 storeys in height. It used to be the headquarters for Stroh's Beer. It is used as mainly an office building, with retail and a restaurant inside. The building was designed in the Chicago School architectural style, and built with brick.

After being purchased by Capozzoli Advisory in 2000, the building was subsequently renovated at a cost of $7,000,000. The tower was originally built with a decorative cornice crown which was removed in the 1960s following modernization of the building by Barton Malow Company.
