main-avenue-bridge-underpass

Downtown Cleveland Alliance seeks a creative professional or team (architect, designer, artist, engineer, landscape architect or combination thereof) to propose unique and attractive design solutions for the area under and around the Main Avenue Bridge Underpass, centered at the intersection of West 9th Street and Main Avenue in Downtown Cleveland. This location is a critical pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular connection between the Warehouse District and the Flats East Bank, with infrastructure, history, and functional potential to inspire the highest level of creative treatments.

The CUDC recently worked with the Downtown Cleveland Alliance to complete a strategic planning process to create a holistic vision and tactical plan for improving the physical connectivity of Downtown Cleveland. The resulting plan, Step Up Downtown, enumerates eighteen (18) key connections where real or perceived gaps or barriers impede the experience of Downtown Cleveland as continuous and traversable.

This is an open Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from established creative professionals based anywhere in North America who are interested in a highly visible and impactful project in Downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Click here to view full submissions details and criteria.
