‚ÄčNiagara Region announced Friday that Adesso Design Inc. of Hamilton, Ont., has been chosen to design and build a new civic park at Niagara Region headquarters.

Region staff awarded the contract May 1.

The project contains the five key elements of the Niagara Region Civic Park (International Plaza), including the Front Lawn, International Plaza, Courtyard, Gardens of the Municipalities and the Orchard Plaza.

The initiative sets out to "completely reimagine the existing area surrounding Niagara’s administrative headquarters into a more modern, inclusive and pedestrian friendly space," said the Region, in a media release.

The new civic park builds on the council-endorsed Brock District Plan, Niagara Regional Headquarters Campus Master Plan and other supporting documents, the Region said.

The project design phase is scheduled from May to September, with construction expected to begin in late fall.

Adesso Design Inc. has completed similar work for the city of Hamilton, Brock University, and a number of other municipalities and institutions.
