Landscape architecture firm awarded contract to restore Peavey Plaza

Dec. 9, 2016 (MINNEAPOLIS) The City Council has approved a contract with Minneapolis-based Coen+Partners to rehabilitate and revitalize Peavey Plaza at 12th Street South & Nicollet Mall.
The landscape architecture firm will focus on improving the plaza while preserving its historic assets. Priorities include refurbishing the fountains and reflecting basin, concrete repairs, utility upgrades and making the plaza accessible to people with disabilities. The goal is to have construction work done by the end of 2018.
Peavey Plaza was built in 1974 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012. It was designed by landscape architect M. Paul Friedberg and is a notable example of modernist architecture. Coen+Partners’ design and construction process will be guided by a study on the plaza’s historic significance and conditions commissioned by the City.
The revitalization plan for Peavey Plaza comes as Nicollet Mall is undergoing a major transformation. Once fully complete in 2018, the redesigned street will be a more inviting place for pedestrians with more durable and environmentally friendly paving materials, new landscaping, lighting and public art, among other things.
