September 28, 2017, Thursday - Happy Hour Networking Event at The Depot

Time: 4:30pm - 6:30pm

Location: Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot

Join the mpls downtown council and East Town Business Partnership as BKV Group presents a bold new plan for Park & Portland Avenues in downtown!

A recent article in the Star Tribune says of this plan: "The Minneapolis architecture, interior design and engineering firm has produced a study that details a powerful new vision for this long-neglected area of East Town, which stretches from Elliot Park to the Armory and the Commons. Called the “Park & Portland: Vision for Development,” the study is one of the more pragmatic downtown urban planning studies in years.”
