James Corner Field Operations tapped to redesign Nicollet Mall


The planned $40 million makeover of Nicollet Mall passed another milestone Thursday, when a team led by James Corner Field Operations of New York City was chosen to design the project.

Corner presented his team’s vision for the new Nicollet, dubbed “Nicollet Walk,” along with two other finalists Tuesday night at the Guthrie Theatre.

His plan divided Nicollet into three sections called Live, Work, and Play, over a 12-block stretch running from Grant St. to Washington Ave.
