This creative adaptive reuse of infrastructure which has suffered decades of neglect will enhance vehicular and pedestrian safety, protect a vital transportation artery, and retain the existing structure for future reuse in a post-automobile era.
…and it’s surprisingly affordable.
Innovative and precedent setting, the design provides a new methodology for repurposing aging infrastructure in an economical, sustainable and socially responsible manner.
Predicted increases in property value and further development of neighbourhoods from the Lower Port Lands to Liberty Village are supported by integrating this active green space into the core of the city.
