Light walk will be focal point for redesigned Nicollet Mall


Landscape architect James Corner unveiled a new concept for the Nicollet Mall redesign Thursday — stunning light and art walks for Nicollet between 6th and 8th streets. 

The new design for the central stretch of Nicollet replaces an earlier concept featuring glass staircases descending from the skyway linking the IDS to Macy’s. Businesses, Metro Transit and city leaders raised concerns about the logistics of the staircases, prompting the design team to consider alternatives.
