INTERNATIONAL DOWNTOWN ASSOCIATION AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
Downtown's Central Green, a Plan BR II Master Plan implementation project, has been recognized by the International Downtown Association for its successful design, level of innovation, and improvement of connectivity.
Over several years, the DDD, Mayor's Office, Public Works, and several other agencies have worked to connect numerous civic and cultural institutions downtown through a unified system of greenspaces known collectively as the Central Green. In total, the Central Green boasts over 11 acres of accessible, contiguous public greenspace in the heart of downtown.
The International Downtown Association has informed the DDD that the project, Central Green: Connecting Community with Commerce & Culture has been selected for the Award of Excellence within the 2020 Achievement Awards Application - Planning, Design and Infrastructure category.
"As we have been working on implementing various aspects of the 'Central Green' from our master plan for several years, it is most gratifying to be recognized by colleagues of this well known downtown organization with members and influence around the world. " DDD Executive Director, Davis Rhorer
