GM Announces Renovation of Detroit's Iconic Renaissance Center
"General Motors today announced it will build a new addition to its Renaissance Center world headquarters including new glass-enclosed display space to exhibit GM brands and a giant video display screen facing Jefferson Avenue," reports John Gallagher.
Construction is expected to begin this year and be completed by 2018. Gallagher adds a few more details about the renovation: "The new atrium-like structure will include 8,000 square feet of new space that wraps around the People Mover track at the RenCen. GM will also reconfigure another 110,000 or so square feet of existing interior space as part of creating a new larger, brighter display area for its brands."
A separate article by Sherri Welch reports that the project was developed by GM's design team, Neumann Smith Architecture, and EWI Worldwide.
