After a month of deliberation, there’s a winner in the competition to redesign St. James Park — almost.
CMG Landscape Architecture’s plan to reinvent the downtown San Jose park has emerged as the favorite of the competition’s eight-person jury, which included design professionals, community members and city staff. But the decision has been protested by one of the four competing design groups, and the city will not make a final decision until the protest is resolved.
The jury first met Oct. 15 to hear presentations from the four competing design groups and make a decision, and two proposals — CMG’s and that of !melk Fr-ee — came out as the top picks. The jury reconvened this month to hash it out and the competitors were notified of the recommendation Nov. 4.
