Proposed Burnsville Amphitheater

McGowan Development designed amphitheater with capacity for 32,500 concertgoers.

McGowan Development was originally incorporated to build an outdoor amphitheater, marina, and solid waste transfer station on a closed sanitary landfill site in a Minneapolis suburb.
Under a Planned Unit Development (PUD) agreement with the city of Burnsville, MN, McGowan Development pursued this complex development, ultimately obtaining all necessary city, state, and Federal approvals required to complete the project.
With a total capacity of 32,500, McGowan Development's proposed amphitheater called for 7500 fixed seats beneath an enormous 51,000 square foot roof, and sloped grassy berm to accommodate another 25,500 concert goers. With a sixty foot tall stage house, 5500 square foot stage, and parking capacity for 15,000 vehicles, the McGowan Development proposed amphitheater was designed to become the preferred Twin Cities venue for all major musical acts.

Project Management

On a closed landfill site, and adjacent to the Minnesota River, McGowan Development's proposed outdoor amphitheater was designed with a capacity for 32,500 concertgoers, and to accomodate the top summer shows and bands.

The historic restoration of the Norwood Young America Pavilion, a massive, 65-ton, 110-year old structure first required the building to be raised 22" to build a new foundation.

Lake Harriet Live!, a day-long, free concert featuring reggae, blues, jazz, and the Minnesota Orchestra was McGowan Development's celebration of the restoration of the Bandshell. With local artists and food vendors selling their goods, Lake Harritet LIve! attracted 25,000 neighbors.
