2013 Hines Competition Honorable Mention – Cornell University


Entry Title: LOOPolis
Award: Honorable Mention
Team Number: 0002
School: Cornell University

About: LOOPolis is about completion, connectivity, and community. It’s about transforming an undeveloped expanse at the edge of downtown into a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood; a sea of parking lots into a model of walkability and bikeability; a region with no identity into a lively community pulsing with young families, young professionals, and still-young retirees. It’s about honoring past visions for a complete downtown, for a continuous greenway circling the city, and for new centers of opportunity for families, businesses, and college graduates, while envisioning anew and closing the loop on what downtown Minneapolis could become.
