The RenCen in Detroit, MI

When people think of Detroit, MI many think about the Renaissance Center, but how many actually know some of the historic facts about this landmark?  Did you know, that the RenCen started construction  in 1973 and has it's own zip code!  The RenCen consists of four towers each containing 39 floors.  The Marriott Hotel in the RenCen is one of the tallest hotels in the world with 1,298 hotel rooms.  In 1996 GM purchased the building. Some pretty interesting facts for one of the largest cities in Michigan.

I don't travel to the city that often, but Friday I had the chance to do a senior photo session there so I had to capture a shot of the RenCen.
