Reinvigorating the aging suburban Lyndale Avenue corridor
Stantec led a team to develop a plan and suburban retrofit strategies for Lyndale Avenue—creating a dynamic, walkable boulevard that connects a series of vibrant and distinctive neighborhoods along one, cohesive corridor.
Our plan prioritizes concepts at two key nodes, including transit-oriented design and development surrounding a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station. Following an extensive community engagement process with support from a public artist, the plan establishes a cultural heart for the community while addressing the overall urban design framework of the corridor—providing guidance for mobility, open space, and buildings. The corridor will include a series of destinations to live, dine, play, and work while preserving Bloomington’s unique history and authentic character. Opportunities to enhance the corridor and establish a pedestrian-friendly corridor and nodes are incorporated into future growth, creating a place where nature meets business.
The final suburban retrofit plan establishes actionable strategies that make the investment case for redeveloping the area over a 20-year period. The city can now use this blueprint to transform the area into a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use neighborhood and main street that incorporates attractive public spaces and supports diverse mobility modes.
