EE&K, a Perkins Eastman company, joined Knutson Construction and representatives of Hennepin County to announce the start of construction for the Interchange in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood adjacent to Target Stadium.

Led by architect Peter Cavaluzzi FAIA, the multidisciplinary team envisions a state-of- the-art transit station with complementary mixed-used development and year-round activated public space. The $79.3 million design-build contract is scheduled to begin in July with expected completion in 2014.
