The Railyards, Victoria BC

  • Date Completed: 2001+

In 2001, Crosland, co-owner and principal of InSite Landscape Architecture was retained as the Prime Consultant to undertake the planning and rezoning of a former CN railyard on Victoria’s waterfront.  Crosland worked with Hotson Baaker Architects to create a new affordable waterfront that reflected its industrial heritage and context.  The design began by dedicating the entire waterfront as a linear public park.  Semi-private open space provided linkages and views to the waterfront from the new mixed-use development.
