Jury Day Results
The St. James Park Jury Day event was held on October 15th. During this well-attended event the Jury saw presentations from each of the four finalist Design Teams and had the opportunity to ask questions. After the presentations, the Jury faced the difficult challenge of ranking the four teams. The Jury deliberated throughout the afternoon, reviewed the public input received to-date and narrowed the selection down to two Design Teams: CMG Landscape Architecture and !melk Fr-ee. The Jury reconvened on November 3, 2016 to discuss further and come up with their final ranking and recommendations.
The finalists’ designs can be viewed online.
