Sasaki selected for Cedar Rapids riverfront project

Two local firms, OPN Architects Inc. and Anderson-Bogert Engineers & Surveyors Inc. are teaming with Sasaki Associates on a new riverfront for Cedar Rapids.

Sasaki Associates beat out nearly 20 other firms for the work, and the council had been deciding between two finalists.

Sasaki won the work based on its previous riverfront work in North America and some its softer more natural approach to the riverfront that came from a brainstorming session.
