Today’s featured project is Jimmy John’s Field located in Utica, MI.  This former six acre landfill is now home to the United Shore Professional Baseball League (USPBL) which hosts four teams: Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers, Eastside Diamond Hoppers, Westside Woolly Mammoths, and the Utica Unicorns who just launched their sophomore season May 11, 2017.

This ballpark is a prime example of how brownfield redevelopment can lead to economic development opportunities that invigorate communities.   “The Small Big Idea” is interwoven throughout the execution of this project with “big league” features at a small scale.  Most people believe you have to invest over $25M in a ballpark to foster economic sustainability, but with an all-in budget of $16M we’ve proven otherwise.

Today’s featured project is Crosstown Substation located in the Crossroads District of Kansas City, MO.  Once a deteriorated and graffiti laden concrete mass, this substation owned by KCP&L has emerged as a backdrop for artistic photographs, public gathering, and curated art.

Interesting Fact:

Crosstown Substation was the recipient of the 2014 EDC Cornerstone Award for Energy, and the 2014 Kansas City Chapter AGC Building Excellence Award Finalist for Project of the year.
