Fort Wayne Project Wins Two Awards

Fort Wayne Project Wins Two Awards

The City of Fort Wayne’s Riverfront Fort Wayne Promenade Park, designed by Design Collaborative, recently won two industry awards, including a Merit Award in the General Design – Constructed Projects category from the Illinois Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA).

The project was selected for this award, in large part, due to its innovative use of LiDAR, maximizing river views and connectivity, accessibility, and use of public space in a flood zone, among other reasons. The project team will officially receive the award during the annual awards ceremony. Earlier in March, the project won an Honor Award from ACEC Indiana, which selected the project based on its “uniqueness and originality, technical complexity, social and economic value, and public awareness.”

“We are honored to receive these honors for Promenade Park, recognizing our client’s vision and commitment to the community, as well as our talented design team’s ability to bring the City of Fort Wayne’s vision to fruition,” said Pat Pasterick, AIA, LEED AP, president. “Riverfront Fort Wayne is a vital component to the City’s downtown experience, revitalization, and legacy for generations to come. We are proud to be a part of such an integral community project.”

The firm also received a 2020 Ad Honors Silver Award in the Special Events Material Category from The American Advertising Federation of Fort Wayne (Ad Fed) in March for Adventure Calls – an invitation-only client event held at Promenade Park to celebrate the park’s opening and Design Collaborative’s role in the transformational project. The award recognizes professional creative tactics used for trade shows, grand openings, and other special events executed between January 2019 and December 2019.

“Being recognized by Ad Fed for this award makes me extremely proud of the marketing communications and Promenade Park design teams,” Pasterick stated. “Design Collaborative is honored to have such creative talent on board, and their commitment to their craft and delivering award-winning work demonstrates their commitment to improving people’s worlds.”
