The Rivers District Master Plan has been designed to be flexible enough to imagine and integrate modernized amenities like a new event centre, an expansion of the BMO Centre, and the delivery of a Stampede Trail retail destination.

National Western ComplexMaster, Plan, Public, Space · 0 commentsThe National Western Center (NWC) represents a visionary transformation of the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum sites into a must-see destination and regional asset, enhancing these current Denver landmarks through creative year-round activity. With a combined 130 acres of redeveloped land, the National Western Center will support Denver’s global standing as a world-class hub for the Western way of life. The master planning effort will bolster a variety of opportunities through the involvement of our partners including Colorado State University, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, History Colorado and an Advisory Committee made up of residents, business owners and other stakeholders from the surrounding Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods. In short, the NWC can become an international model for a synergistic educational and R&D community – with those entire words writ broad and adapted to the evolving definitions of mid-21st century populations.

Red Sea Project Coastal VillageHospitality, Master, Plan, Public, Space, Residential · 0 commentsThe Red Sea Project, the country’s most ambitious regenerative tourism destination, which will play a pivotal role in the Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 ambitions. This large scale resort community on the shore of the Red Sea will be made available to visitors from around the world beginning in 2022. Creating a destination of this size presents significant challenges. With 50 hotels and 8,000 rooms being developed across 22 islands, every single element of the destination needs to be considered in meticulous detail. To facilitate the building and operation of the destination, two high quality accommodations for employees and workers have been created. The Construction Village – which is set to house 10,000 workers – is now open, and will soon be followed by the Coastal Village which includes a three-star staff hotel for employees visiting the site as well as the 14,000 people who will eventually work at the destination. Environmental decisions inform every element of the project and determine everything from the techniques used during infrastructure works to the partners selected for new contracts. A set of operational commitments have been put in place to not only protect but also to enhance the environment. These include a 100% reliance on renewable energy, a total ban on single-use plastics, zero waste-to-landfill, and an aspiration to achieve 100% carbon neutrality across the entire project.53000Read more
St Petersburg PierPublic, Space · 0 commentsThe site situated between downtown and the new pier is envisioned as a seamless yet varied experience connecting the city with the bay. The design proposal encompasses three interlinked pedestrian experiences that encourage people to enjoy the area on foot: an urban pedestrian spine that reaches from the downtown to the pierhead, a family-oriented park, and enlivened waterfront edges. With more than 5,300 feet of water frontage, these hard and soft edges provide a variety of settings for gathering and interacting with the water. The existing condition devotes more than 60% of the 20-acre area to streets and parking; the plan for the waterfront site significantly reduces roadways and parking and increases engaging pedestrian use, shade, and vegetation and manages storm water on site.32640Read more
