DETROIT — The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is expected to announce the winner of an international design contest for Detroit’s West Riverfront Park.

A news conference is scheduled Tuesday at the General Motors Renaissance Center Wintergarden in downtown Detroit.

Earlier this year, four design firms presented their visions for a roughly $50 million project to transform the 22-acre (9-hectare) park along the Detroit River. Renderings from each finalist firm were presented to the general public and deliberated by a world-class jury.

Conservancy board chair Matt Cullen has said the vision for the riverfront is “bold and aspirational.”
