Under the deal, the city will pay $55 million to purchase the land on the railway route, which extends for nine kilometres from False Creek near Downtown Vancouver to Marpole on the city's south side.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Once the unofficial home to community gardens and in situ artworks, under the city's plan the Vancouver's Arbutus Corridor will become a place for cyclists and walkers.&nbsp;It's not the High Line (although much like that <a href="http://archinect.com/features/article/145736562/liz-diller-gets-high-discussing-the-high-line-s-development-with-christopher-hawthorne" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">project</a>, Vancouver city officials would like to continue thinking that the rail tracks could be still be used for transportation after the corridor is developed).&nbsp;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/0s/0st49q4vqhgbx9gp.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/px/pxfgj8b813bczmqh.jpg"></p><p>What else is going on in Vancouver?

Bryn Davidson, Jorge Siemsen, Oliver Neumann + Cristian Schmitt, and Simon Montgomery were each given a thematic word to reinterpret and lighting packages to incorporate into their projects, and were assigned site-specific areas within the Woodwards Atrium. Other than that, they have complete freedom over their projects. The designers were given three months to create their pieces and have two days to install them in the Atrium. Then on the evening of Oct. 3, the results will be on display for the public to interact with and experience.</p> <p> <br> You can click <a href="http://welovelamp.ca" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a> to purchase tickets, watch interviews with the designers, and more.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/38081762/beach-howe-tower-proposal-vancouver-big-tower-bjarke-ingels-group Beach & Howe Tower Proposal Vancouver BIG Tower Bjarke Ingels Group Archinect 2012-02-14T18:37:00-05:00 >2012-02-16T10:16:03-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/9d/9d61979a579435cae4b8a9a7b7a4ffda.jpg" width="514" height="531" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The proposal is for a mixed-use development. On the Howe Street side, there will be a 49-storey residential tower with a 9-storey podium which includes market rental housing, commercial uses, and a childcare facility. The building height is at 150 metres and will be the tallest building on the southern end of downtown and the 4th tallest building in the city, unless the Ritz Carlton site gets developed before this, in which case it would be the 5th tallest.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
