Wow !!! Would I love to get my hands on those,
6 tube half pipers with Art Deco end caps are nearly impossible to find ,

I would highly recommend someone keep an eye on this building and try to locate the owner and make a reasonable cash offer for those lights because it’s only a matter of time before these fixtures get trashed,

A visit to the appraisel district online may help You find the current owner,

Very nice! The 34 watt lamps worry me though if it's still preheat.

perhaps this is the latest fluorescent fixtures from the legacy of S.S. Kresge Co. Department Store ! the company chose the new fluorescent lighting in these stores in the early 40's , and have installed half pipes with 6 lamps in all their stores to benefit from a lot of brightness

True, since it looks like it may have a replacement power wire running to it also.
