Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park received the 2019 Best in Landscape/Urban Development Award in the Southeast Region from Engineering News Record (ENR) Friday in Orlando, FL. An independent panel of industry leaders in design and construction from each of ENR’s 10 regional editions judged the projects using five criteria, including safety, innovation and teamwork. The 10 regional winners in each category will then compete to receive the national award at ENR’s 55th Annual Award of Excellence Black-Tie Gala, which is announced in New York City in April. Winning Best in Landscape/Urban Development Award means that Julian B Lane Riverfront Park is eligible to win the national award in April.

Engineering News Record (ENR) is an American weekly magazine that provides news, analysis, data and opinion for the construction industry worldwide. ENR reports on the Top design firms, both architects and engineers, and the top construction companies as well as projects in the United States and around the world.

“Julian B.
