General Motors has unveiled a revived plaza and promenade along the river outside its world headquarters in Detroit.

The Renaissance Center plaza is part of a series of projects aimed at turning the city's neglected riverfront into an urban playground.

The RiverWalk will span nearly six miles when it's all said and done.

Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick says GM's decision to reinvest is driving Detroit's growth.

GM bought the Ren-Cen in 1996, revamped it, and moved its headquarters there. It has since attracted other corporations and retailers to the complex.
