The GM Building in Detroit, is now referred to as Cadillac Place, and there is also a GM Building located in New York. Cadillac Place is a high rise office building located in downtown Detroit and was originally the main base of the General Motors Company from 1923 until 1996. It was then that GM moved to the Renaissance Center, also located in Detroit, and sold the old building to the city of Michigan. It was then that the building was renamed Cadillac Place as Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac was the founder of Detroit.

The Renaissance Center which was constructed in 1977 is located along the waterfront of the Detroit River and is a series of seven interconnected skyscrapers which is best viewed from the other side of the international border in the city of Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Although the entire building is owned by GM (General Motors) parts of it are used by other organisations and companies such as the Marriott Hotel.

Windsor Ontario, just across the river, is the southernmost city in Canada, and is slightly younger than Detroit, which was founded in 1701, whereas Windsor was settled around 1749.
