2020 marks the 15-year anniversary of Mills Group, an award-winning architecture firm with offices in Morgantown and Wheeling. In celebration of their clients and stakeholders, they offered free conceptual design services to public entities and nonprofits that are working to improve their communities through architecture, preservation, and planning efforts within the state.

“This offer of pro-bono services is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the communities that have supported our growth and success over the past 15 years,” says Managing Principal Michael Mills. “We truly believe that great design makes for great communities, and by doing this, we can help make a difference in West Virginia.”

One of the four winners is the City of Morgantown for the development of the 430 Spruce Street Pocket Park. Mills Group developed the master plan for the project, which includes construction documents, a demolition plan, hardscape and landscape plans, and a specifications and project manual. Mills Group is also managing the bidding process and coordinating with the construction of the project.

“The master plan provided by Mills Group has been extremely helpful in guiding our vision for the future of the Morgantown Market Place,” says Interim City Manager Emily Muzzarelli. “The pocket park at the Spruce Center will be a welcome addition to the Market Place and create a much-needed green space in downtown Morgantown.”
