The landscape architect behind New York’s award-winning High Line has been selected to design a major new park in Vancouver. James Corner will design a multi-use park for about 21 acres of space in northeast False Creek – on one of the last undeveloped areas of waterfront land downtown.
“This is probably the largest park project for the park board in a generation,” said Dave Hutch (MBCSLA), manager of research and planning for Vancouver Park Board.
Mr. Corner will be in Vancouver on Wednesday to meet with officials and the local design firm on the project – PWL Partnership – and tour the site. Beginning in late January or early February, public meetings will be held to solicit feedback and input, and learn about “people’s desires and fears,” Mr. Corner said.
