The design successfully addresses two natures of the city – the wild, other-worldliness of the rail corridor and the regular bustle of residential life – and brings them together in a beautiful and active urban composition. What was an impassable brownfield is now a well-loved neighbourhood connector that has improved both the human and ecological urban habitat.
