Design challenge:

The Nashua International Design Competition was initiated and organized by people interested in the success of the Broad Street Parkway and the rebirth of the Nashua Millyard. This interdisciplinary competition seeks solutions to the complex challenges of the project. With the development and construction of the long-awaited Broad Street Parkway and the new addition of the public space at the former site of the Labine Building, an unparalleled opportunity is available to Nashua to redefine this area. Furthermore through redevelopment and careful planning, the Nashua Millyard can once again become the working jewel it was many years ago.
