SUNSET ON THE GROVE PLAZA: GOING OUT WITH A BANG!August 14, 2018
CCDC’s award-winning place making project, the renovation of The Grove Plaza, continues to collect accolades from across the U.S. This labor of love in the heart of Downtown Boise, rebranded and relaunched in 2017, was most recently recognized – thanks to our partner and lead designers at CHSQA – by the construction industry’s weekly magazine, the Engineering News-Record, for a regional award. ENR Mountain States recognized The Grove Plaza as the 2018 Best Project in the Landscape / Urban Development category. The region includes Idaho, Utah, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota. A panel of nine judges from all industry sectors – architects, engineers, general contractors, green consultants, virtual designers – sifted through 124 entries to select winners and merit awards.
With less than 50 days until the Central District “sunset,” the awards keep coming. CCDC has also been notified that The Grove Plaza project has been selected for prestigious national and local awards. Details are “embargoed” until later this year. Sincere thanks to CHSQA and all partners who collaborated with us on this significant and successful undertaking — it was a team effort! As part of the Central District’s sunset, CCDC will proudly convey ownership of TGP to the City of Boise in the coming weeks.
