Downtown Commons
Minneapolis, MN, USA

Project Details

Minneapolis, MN, USA

Porous Pave was selected for the Downtown Commons in Minneapolis. Completed in August 2016, the Commons is a 4.2-acre public park and green space adjacent to U.S. Bank Stadium, the new home of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.

The Commons includes seven sections of Porous Pave XL permeable pavement totaling 19,000 square feet and 120 permeable tree surrounds created using 3,000 square feet of Porous Pave XLS.

“Porous Pave was selected for its permeability, usability and versatility, and ease of maintenance. With its rubber content, it is safe and suitable for foot traffic and wheelchairs, comfortable to stand on and slip-resistant when wet.” — Ryan Potvin, Operations Manager, Peterson Companies, the project’s landscape contractor
