Developing an Urban Design Framework for St. Anthony Main

large-feature-two.jpgEach year the M.Arch Graduate Urban Design Studio selects a complex, and often controversial, urban site within the Twin Cities region as an urban design topic to be analyzed and redesigned.

Students in the Fall 2011 section of the course chose to analyze and redesign an area within the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood, the birthplace of Minneapolis. The site borders the Mississippi River and combines issues pertaining to development, preservation of historic buildings, linking of community to the waterfront, and approaches for infill development.


Their work was published in a report by the Metropolitan Design Center in March, 2012.
