HASSELL, in collaboration with We Made That, has been appointed by London Borough of Croydon to deliver an important public realm project as part of the Connected Croydon programme. Supported by Engineers Buro Happold and graphic designers, Objectif, the team will deliver the South End Public Realm, part of a coordinated set of projects to enhance Croydon’s high streets.
The £2.8m South End scheme will transform the streetscape of a key gateway into central Croydon – and the heart of the Borough’s restaurant district – to create a coherent, high
quality and welcoming place. Works are expected to start on site in early 2014 following extensive engagement and consultation with stakeholders and community groups.
The Broadway Mall Association is collaborating with Balmori Associates (Landscape/Urban Design), Joel Sanders (Architecture), and Domingo Gonzalez Associates (Lighting Design) to transform the entire 100-block length of the Broadway Malls into a stunning ecological corridor that will bring beauty, public safety, and commercial visibility to thousands of New Yorkers.
Working with Enterprise Community Partners, Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation (FBHC) and OCV Architects, Robin Key Landscape Architecture (RKLA) is developing an intergenerational garden for seniors and high school students at the Serviam Gardens senior housing development in the Bronx. Built on the campus of Mt. St. Ursula, an all-girls Catholic high school, the grounds of Serviam Gardens will serve the building’s 240 senior residents with a series of outdoor spaces that feature sustainable water practices, accessibility, community gathering spaces and an urban farm.
