MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Downtown Minneapolis’ Peavey Plaza has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) announced Thursday.

The designation was made official on Jan. 14.

Peavey Plaza, which opened in 1975, is the Modernist urban plaza designed by landscape architect M. Paul Friedberg.

“Peavey Plaza’s National Register designation is a victory of Paul Friedberg’s brilliant design, for Modernist landscape architecture and further undermines the City of Minneapolis’ ill-advised demolition plans,” said Charles A. Birnbaum, TCLF founder and president.

There are more than 88,000 sites on the National Register and less than 2,500 have significance in landscape architecture.
