Branson Landing will be receiving the 2009 Director's Redevelopment Award at an upcoming state conference.
The $420 million downtown Branson development will receive the award from the Missouri Department of Economic Development during the Missouri Governor's Conference on Economic Development, Sept. 9-11 in St. Louis. Representatives from developer HCW Development Co. LLC and the city of Branson will accept the award.
The state gives the annual award in recognition of the best example of a redevelopment project that has a significant impact on the neighborhood or community, according to a city of Branson news release.
Branson Landing, opened in 2006, is a mixed-use master-planned development, comprising 450,000 square feet of retail shops, restaurants and condominiums, along with the Hilton Promenade hotel and 95 acres of Lake Taneycomo waterfront.
The development was cited for four major successes: urban revitalization, environmental improvements, creation of civic space and economic productivity.
A baked goods vendor at Farmers Market of the Ozarks expanded to a brick-and-mortar operation; the first lending center for Old Missouri Bank opened; and London Calling Pasty Co. added a new food truck.
