There was a vision to transform Detroit’s international riverfront, the face of the city, into a beautiful, exciting, safe, accessible world-class gathering place for all.
The $500 million dollar redevelopment of the riverfront area included construction of a three mile long river walk, part of which was adjacent to the General Motors Renaissance Center Buildings in downtown Detroit. The new GM Plaza area needed to be raised more than 4 meters in the area formerly used as a parking lot.
As part of General Motors’ renovation of the Renaissance Center for its world headquarters, GM created the GM Plaza and Promenade, a spectacular riverfront space that has quickly become a new city gathering spot and signature event venue.
