    Get to know Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis’ civic “Main Street” for more than 100 years. People come to Nicollet to work, eat and shop year round, and it’s the first impression many visitors get of the entire metro area. Host to the busiest light rail station and several bus routes, Nicollet provides key connections to many other downtown points of interest including the Mississippi River, Loring Park, the Minneapolis Convention Center, Target Field, Target Center, the Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and U.S. Bank Stadium.

    This text was contributed by Lisa Switkin, a landscape architect and Senior Principal at James Corner Field Operations, a landscape architecture and urban design practice based in New York City. JCFO was the lead design firm selected to renovate Nicollet from 2013-2017. Ben Shardlow, Director of Urban Design for the Downtown Improvement District narrates the tour.
