And Now the Real Fun Begins on the Upper Minneapolis Riverfront!

February 10, 2011Patrick NunnallyUncategorizedComments Off on And Now the Real Fun Begins on the Upper Minneapolis Riverfront!

I will simply forward the announcement as it appeared a short while ago on the Minneapolis Riverfront Design Competition web site:

TLS/KVA Named Winning Design Team!

With their selection as the winning team, TLS/KVA will be awarded a riverfront parks commission and become part of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s Minneapolis Riverfront Initiative, of which the design competition was the first phase. While the team’s RiverFIRST proposal contained many specific design schemes, no particular location, project or feature has yet been identified for development. As the design competition concludes, the Park Board and its partners will engage in a four-month transition phase to identify next steps.

This is very good news, indeed!

Congratulations to TLS/KVA, to the Minneapolis Riverfront Design Competition team, and to the city.
