Lot D: The Wharf conceputal plans published online

Architecture Advantage. Linkedin

An Architecture Advantage post on Linkedin: "It has been such a pleasure to work with Inland Development Partners, Damon Farber Landscape Architects, and the City of Duluth to bring together initial concepts for the revitalization and redevelopment of Lot D in Duluth.

Lot D is the last undeveloped mixed-use site located along Duluth’s 26 miles of waterfront. Located in the Bayfront District, this site offers opportunities for equitable public experiences including view of the iconic Aerial Lift Bridge and the shipping harbor in one of the most visible and distinctive areas in the City of Duluth. We enjoyed being able to participate in the Duluth & St. Louis County Days at the Capitol this week and share this work that has been done to date as the City of Duluth seeks bonding funds to assist in the site restoration needs.

A huge thank you to the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce for putting this wonderful event together!"
