The landowner and the municipality made a partnership, initiated by the landowner. An “environment fond”...

The Dutch firm of architects West 8, spearheaded by Adriaan Geuze, has drafted the general plan for the area. West 8 has generally attempted to exploit the fact that industry has vacated the area to reclaim the port for Copenhageners. The philosophy is to create a compact and active urban environment characterized by large building complexes varying in shape and height. At street level, shops and cafés will emerge onto an elongated square in the centre of the site. The square affords access to and from DFDS Seaways' new ferry terminal and the ferries to Oslo and Poland. In its bid to create a quarter with a buzz most of the day and night, commercial buildings have been...

A greyfield redevelopment of a former shopping mall, Century Park will create nearly 3000 new residences, along with 18,000 m2 of office space and 15,000 m2 of retail space, adjacent to a major rapid transit station.
This is the first large-scale development of this kind in Edmonton, transplanting the Vancouver model of 'tower and podium' highrise design. This approach mixes street-level townhouses that front directly onto the street with high rises that are stepped back, achieving density without compromising human scale and an attractive pedestrian environment.
