When we are not roofing GM Renaissance Center, we also like hanging there. Of course, roofing GM Renaissance Center is our first task, but there’s also a lot to love other than work. The GMRENCEN features dozens of stores and services, a financial center, two foreign consulates, a fitness center, a Marriott hotel, some of the city’s most popular restaurants, and a 1,100-seat CAFE. That’s just one of the reasons Detroit Roofers is proud to have a reputation for excelling at roofing GM Renaissance Center.
The 73-story GM Renaissance Center, which is also called GM Ren Cen or just Renaissance Center, is the tallest building in downtown Detroit. It stands over the Detroit River. The GMRENCEN is a symbol of the city because it is the place where people meet, eat, and do business. The RenCen is a group of seven connected skyscrapers in Downtown Detroit, Michigan, United States. It is also called the GM Renaissance Center and is sometimes called the RenCen. The General Motors world headquarters is in the Renaissance Center complex, which is on the Detroit International Riverfront. Since it was put up in 1977, the central tower has been the tallest building in Michigan.
General Motors bought its world headquarters, a Class-A building, in 1996. In 2004, they spent $500 million to fix it up. The five-story Wintergarden atrium, which leads to the International Riverfront, was added as part of the renovation. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Gensler, SmithGroup, and Ghafari Associates were some of the architects who worked on the renovation. Work on the complex and the area around it went on until 2005. The Renaissance Center is one of the biggest business centers in the world. It is 5,552,000 square feet, which is a lot of space.
The complex was given a new name, “The GMRENCEN,” in July 2015. Its logo was updated, and the new tagline was “Reflecting a New Detroit.” A photo-journalistic advertising campaign was started to “shout out” the people in Detroit who do great things for the city.
In 1996, General Motors bought the complex and moved its world headquarters from what is now the historic Cadillac Place state office complex in the New Center district to the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit. At the same time, Ford Motor Company had offices in one of the center towers. Before it was bought, Sibley’s Shoes had its main office in the middle.
Along the Detroit River, the Renaissance Center is a property with a riverfront. About a mile north of the center are Comerica Park and Ford Field, which are where the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions play baseball and football, respectively. The entrance to the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel from the United States is right next to the west side of the Renaissance Center. The Detroit People Mover stops at the Renaissance Center. The complex is also connected to the Millender Center by a skyway for pedestrians that goes over Jefferson Avenue. Several blocks west of the Renaissance Center, on Jefferson Avenue, are the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, Hart Plaza, TCF Center (formerly Cobo Center, where the North American International Auto Show and Youmacon are held), and the Joe Louis Arena (former home of the Detroit Red Wings). Just across Jefferson Avenue is the School of Law at the University of Detroit Mercy. The modernist architecture of the Renaissance Center balances the city’s waterfront skyline, which is often captured in photos taken from Windsor, Ontario, across the river. From the top of the Coach Insignia restaurant in the Renaissance Center, which closed in 2017, people could see the neogothic spires of the One Detroit Center and the Financial District skyscrapers and stadiums. From the top, you could see 30 miles in every direction. We enjoy roofing GM Renaissance Center.
