CEAM 2010 Project of the Year.
HKGi and Bolton & Menk recently collaborated on the design for a $4.3 million street and streetscape reconstruction of Central Avenue – Osseo, Minnesota's main street. The design is built around "complete street" principles and incorporates a significant amount of sustainable design elements including bike corals, pedestrian furniture, a one-block plaza street, LED lighting, pervious pavers, and structural soil. The street is a balanced environment for pedestrians, bicyclists, and autos and offers flexible spaces that can be closed to autos for community events. An important aspect of how the streetscape is designed is the ability to dismantle and reinstall it like a "kit of parts" to accommodate future redevelopment.
