More InformationShow full item record
Stillwater lies in one of the most beautiful locations in Minnesota. It harbors a rich history linked to the river and was one of the first settlements in Minnesota. As of late Stillwater’s downtown has been a hot spot for tourists and travelers. Located only 18 miles from the Twin Cities it attracts many people to this beautiful location. By creating an adjacent waterfront that compliments the already beautiful and successful downtown it will encourage more use and user circulation throughout more of the city. The focus of this design will essentially be to complete Stillwater’s overall downtown by re-designing and connecting it to its waterfront. Stillwater’s downtown currently seems unfinished because the potential of the urban waterfront is untapped. This design will create another focal point for the city center, and utilize the huge potential of its urban waterfront.
