RFQ Available: February 25, 2016

The West Broadway Business and Area Coalition (WBC) seeks a design professional, landscape architect or creative team/firm to design and construct a public plaza/park demonstration project in a vacant lot on West Broadway in North Minneapolis. In an area where public space and street life has been criminalized, this demonstration project aims to decrease perception of crime, normalize use of public space, and improve corridor aesthetics. The project area falls within the West Broadway Improvement District, a Special Service District self-managed by the WBC.

The WBC will maintain and support programming of the completed public plaza from June 2016 through at least January 2017. The WBC will use the public plaza project to evaluate the viability of and determine best practices for a permanent public space/s as part of upcoming public and private development investments on West Broadway.
Plaza Design and Construction Budget: $30,000-40,000
