Progress at Peavey Plaza

Excerpt from a January 3 e-newsletter from Preservation Alliance of Minnesota (PAM):

The Preservation Alliance of Minnesota has been a strong advocate for the preservation of Peavey Plaza since 2008, when it was first identified as an endangered property. After several twists and turns, including a demolition proposal by the City of Minneapolis, a subsequent legal challenge by PAM and The Cultural Landscape Foundation, listing in the National Register of Historic Places, and a preservation-focused legal settlement, rehabilitation work is due to begin on Peavey Plaza in 2018.

The landscape design by Coen + Partners and Preservation Design Works is nearing completion, and the city anticipates going out for bid next week. The design will result in some noticeable changes, but PAM and our partners, including TCLF, Docomomo US MN, and Preserve Minneapolis, continue to advocate for the retention and rehabilitation of features that reflect Peavey Plaza’s historic character. Check out the 90% plans and the evolution of the rehabilitation design on the city’s website.
