Spring is finally here, Detroit! It’s the time of year when we get the long awaited chance to step outside, say hello to the blossoming trees on the RiverWalk and greet the returning wildlife along the waterfront. And this year, there’s another reason to tuck your chair in at your desk for a happy outing: The Plaza is now the hot spot for a break – really any time of day!
The New Furniture on the Plaza
Last Friday really did feel like the perfect day to start the season, and what a better day to welcome the beautiful new tables, chairs and umbrellas on the Plaza at the GMRENCEN? As the sun sparkled on the Detroit River, we busily arranged the new furniture just outside the Wintergarden. The colorful ensemble spans the Plaza and features nature-inspired green “leaf” chairs, designed to mimic the leaves now sprouting on trees and bushes all along the RiverWalk.
The tables are a perfect size for a break, or an impromptu meeting outside of the office. The blue umbrellas compliment the beautiful blue waters of the Detroit River, and the whimsical orange chairs are the perfect place to simply sit and smile in the warmth of the sunshine!
The GMRENCEN now has over 30 stores and restaurants offering an array of carry out choices. Just imagine the possibilities! Grab a pastry from Panera, a fresh smoothie from Bozii, a coffee from Coffee Beanery, or a cool Refresher from Starbucks. At lunch, enjoy something to-go from Granite City, Andiamo, or Potbelly. Top off the fun with a scoop of Ashby’s Ice Cream from Presto and you’ll be refreshed and recharged for the afternoon!
And even though he knows dogs aren’t allowed on the furniture, our buddy-old-pal Volt couldn’t help himself and just had to hop up to give the chairs a try! Ok, Volt, we’re glad you approve, but you’re going to have to hop down now and save the chairs for all our two-legged friends!
So come on, people, let’s get together On the Plaza at the GMRENCEN!
