DTE Energy‘s Beacon Park won a prestigious 2019 Merit Award from the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU). “How a place is designed fundamentally shapes people’s lives,” said Lynn Richards, President and CEO of CNU. “That’s a profound responsibility, and Charter Award-winning designers take it seriously. Projects like Beacon Park are victories of common sense, of providing the seemingly simple building blocks for people in a community: in this case, much-needed green space and places to come together.” The 2019 awards recognize architecture, planning, development, and landscape designs that offer choices for affordable housing, a lively mix of uses, and public space in a wide variety of settings.
Congratulations to DTE Energy and many thanks to our core design team of Giffels Webster, Peter Basso Associates, Inc, Touloukian Touloukian Inc. and Illuminart for your work on this catalytic project.
