An early vision for the park. By Ed Estes.
The finalists in a nationwide call for designs for the 11th Street Bridge Park have been narrowed down to four teams.
Plans have been in the works for over a year to turn three concrete piers into one elevated park connecting Anacostia and Navy Yard. The goal of the project is to create a connecting design with an appeal similar to that of New York City’s High Line.
A total of 41 design proposals came in for the park, and a committee narrowed those down to six a little over a month ago. UrbanTurf has learned that the finalists were recently narrowed down further to the following four teams:
Scott Kratz, who’s heading up the project with the help of the Office of Planning — and trying to raise the $40 million it’ll take to build it — told UrbanTurf on Tuesday that he was excited about the four finalists.
“We are thrilled with the selection of architects, landscape architects and structural engineers — truly some of the best firms in the country,” he said in an email.
The winning team among the four finalists will be announced in October.
