  • Ken Smith Workshop, New York City
  • Stoss Landscape Urbanism, Boston
  • Tom Leader Studio, Berkeley

Each firm will receive a stipend to propose a “21st Century Riverfront Park” for the Mississippi Riverfront upstream from St. Anthony Falls.  The winner, will be announced February 10, 2011.

There will be a community meeting on the process and possibilities for these visions, December 7, 7:00 pm at the Minneapolis Park Board‘s headquarters.  Other comments and queries can be made through the MR/DC web site.

The competition provides a once-in-a-generation chance to shape a waterfront that is multifunctional and sustainable, that is a social and economic asset as well as critically important green space.
