Exclusive to NorthIowaToday.com.|Architectural firm Waggoner & Wineinger Architects, Mason City, has designed an alternative plan for a multi-purpose complex development that has been proposed for downtown Mason City, and they will present their plan at the December 21st, 2010 City Council meeting.

One plan has already been designed and presented by Bergland & Cram Architects. Their plan was discussed at a November 2nd City Council meeting. their plan would utilize land southwest of Southbridge Mall and have three main components: An event center, a hotel/commerce center, and condos. WWA’s plan is for an alternate site location.

NorthIowaToday.com stopped by the offices of Waggoner & Wineinger to discuss their plan. Ed Wineinger, lead architect, designed the new plan along with associate Justin Bailey. Wineinger said his firm’s plan attempts to “weave the events center complex into the fabric of downtown” and enable the community realize the greatest benefit.

One main point of the Waggoner & Wineinger plan is to make the events center as inclusive as possible for everyone in the community, not just for certain interests. “We want this project to raise the quality of life for every citizen. This is an inclusive solution, where “there’s something in it for everyone.”

Another key point of the Waggoner & Wineinger plan is to maximize economic impact to the City by “connecting with other downtown entities to create an enticing environment that people want to participate in.”

Wineinger wanted to save most of the details of their plan for the Council meeting, but he did say that his proposed plan is of comparable cost as the Bergland & Cram Architects proposed plan.

NorthIowaToday.com will have a full report on the new plan that the City will consider after the December 21st City Council meeting.
