Detroit’s Campus Martius named top U.S. urban park

John Gallagher of the Detroit Free Press wrote a really cool article the other day about Campus Martius (across the street from where we're moving to in downtown Detroit), and we love it. Here's a preview:

Detroit’s Campus Martius Park was named today the first-ever winner of the Urban Land Institute’s Amanda Burden Urban Open Space Award, given in a national competition to recognize an outstanding example of a public open space that has catalyzed the transformation of the surrounding community.

The announcement was made this morning at ULI’s Real Estate Summit in Boston. Detroit’s park was chosen over park finalists in Boston, New York, Seattle, Pittsburgh, and Greenville, S.C. for the top honor. The finalists were chosen from among 88 initial entries.

Read the full article if you'd like.

We'll be down there in about three months or so, enjoying the top U.S. urban park.
