Gateway Park: riverfront connection visioning
A situation too good and too important to pass up.
The Mississippi River is the centerpiece of Minneapolis. Recent changes to post office operations, the closure of the Upper St. Anthony Lock and Dam, and neighborhood development create an opportunity to explore new ways of connecting downtown to the riverfront. With the notion that there could be a higher and better purpose for the post office, RSP sponsored a design studio at the University of Minnesota Design Center that challenged students to consider new uses. We believe there’s an opportunity to do something spectacular.
