The 11th annual “Building Community” event kicked off on June 21, offering visitors a survey of the emerging urban landscape in Minneapolis.

Through Friday, June 25, interested parties can pop into the Capella Tower Atrium and peruse scale models, artist renderings, computer animations and multi-media displays of planned, ongoing and recently completed building projects in Minneapolis and the surrounding area.

This year’s featured projects include the new Target Field and its adjoining transit hub, the planned Minneapolis to Chicago high speed rail line, the Central Corridor light rail transit line, the Minneapolis “Great City Streets” program and the University of Minnesota Biomedical Discovery District.

Admission to the weeklong exhibit is free, and each day features a noon-hour open house that includes food, beverages and short presentations from planners, developers, architects and public officials.

Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, except for Friday, when the exhibit closes at 2 p.m. The daily open houses occur from noon to 1 p.m.
