The American Institute of Architects Detroit’s Urban Priorities Committee (AIA-UPC) is conducting a design competition to redesign the riverfront of Detroit. The competition will focus on the area between Cobo Hall and the Renaissance Center and between Jefferson Avenue and the Detroit River. This section of Riverfront which includes Hart Plaza is at the heart of the city. The major streets from the radial street plan created by Augustus Woodward (based on L’Enfant’s layout of Washington D.C.) intersect just north of this site.
