Pier Park gets international recognition

New Westminster's Pier Park just missed making the short list of top six completed urban regeneration projects in the World Architecture News Awards. But it did get special mention from judge Martyn Evans, the marketing and creative director for Cathedral Group, a leading public private partnership development company in the UK, who said the park had come "a hell of a long way," from its previous incarnation as derelict industrial property.

 

Another judge, Kent Jackson, the design director of architecture and design firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, commended the park "in terms of sustainability it is excellent, extremely commendable."

 

The Pier Park was up against some heady competition, including a linear park built over an expressway in Madrid, Spain, a redesign of Leicester Square in London, England and a rehabilitated industrial waterfront in Aukland, New Zealand.

 

The Pier Park is still in the running for an ECOWAN Award for sustainable architecture, which will be announced in 2013.

 

The World Architecture News Awards is the largest architectural awards program in the world with more than 800 entries from 51 countries.
