Black-owned Holt Brothers Construction has been awarded a $5.4 million contract to complete the North Carolina Freedom Park in Raleigh.

The park, designed to honor the contributions of African Americans in North Carolina, will be located between the Executive Mansion and the Legislative Building. It will be anchored by the Beacon of Freedom, a piece of public art that will be illuminated at night, The Associated Press reports.

The project will be completed next year.

Architect Perkins & Will and the late architect Phil Freelon designed the park.
