Entry Title: Portland Avenue
Award: Finalist
Team Number: 0418
Schools: Ball State University and Purdue University

About: Envisioned as a realistic mixed-use residential “main street” Portland Ave offers a desirable new identity for Downtown East, with unique dining, shopping, living, and event opportunities. Featuring public plazas, retail spaces, a transit line, and hotel, Portland Avenue becomes the central hub of social and economic activity. It also transforms into an auxiliary event space for game days and other celebrations. A system of individually programmed open spaces facilitates outdoor social and cultural interaction. Mixed-use residential blocks flank Portland Ave providing local services for adjacent housing. Meeting demands of Minneapolis’s sophisticated market and policies, district-wide sustainability features are woven into Portland Avenue’s design. Phase one supports immediate market demands and provides a catalyst for future investment. Phases two and three fill remaining gaps with residential blocks. Unique funding opportunities from the TIF district, City Higher Density Corridor Housing Program, and other incentive programs enhance project feasibility, thereby reducing investor risk..
