Renaissance Center

The idea for the Renaissance Center was first conceived by Henry Ford II as part of the Detroit Renaissance, a project meant to stimulate the city's economy. Today, the Renaissance Center is the tallest building in Michigan. The 7-tower complex utilizes over 2 millions square feet of glass and has been called a "city within a city." Offices, retail stores, and a Marriott Hotel can all be found in the Renaissance Center.
