Concerned with the continued deterioration of the iconic Lake Harriet Bandshell, McGowan Development organized and successfully completed an all volunteer, completely free restoration of the Lake Harriet Bandshell. Enlisting partnerships with The Home Depot, 3M, United Rentals, Apogee Enterprises, Viracon, Graco, Pods, and twenty more large and small companies, McGowan Development's restoration saved Minneapolis taxpayers nearly $650,000.
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.
