2019 American Architecture Awards – Best Projects Award Winner
The American Architecture Awards, considered the nation's highest public awards for new architecture and urban planning, has selected Julian B Lane Riverfront Park and the Tampa River Center to receive the prestigious award for design excellence. The park, co-designed by Civitas and W Architecture and Landscape Architecture, was completed in 2018 as the first project in the City of Tampa's plan to rejuvenate the West Tampa riverfront neighborhoods.
"It's no surprise to me that Julian B. Lane Riverfront park has won this prestigious award," said Mayor Jane Castor. "This park will soon serve as the anchor and front lawn of the West River Redevelopment, a project that will transform West Tampa. As someone whose family has owned a business in West Tampa, it is truly remarkable to watch this gem of a neighborhood evolve into what will be one of Tampa's most sought after communities to live, work and play."
