The design team of the Camden Highline has been announced.
James Corner Field Operations, the firm behind South Park at Q.E. Olympic Park and New York High Line, in collaboration with vPPR Architects, following a two-stage international competition organised by Colander Associates. They will now work with the local community to re-imagine a three-quarter mile of disused railway viaduct as a new walking route, park and open space for community activity.
Very exciting news for Camden indeed, to have the team behind the famous New York Highline bringing their skills to this new design.
There were 76 entries and all came down to this one final proposal.
The local community will be approached for their input to establish a safe, touristic, convenient, and green approach the the build.
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “Camden Highline has the potential to become a really important new asset for the local community in Camden and people across the capital. This is exactly the sort of innovative, environmentally sustainable and locally-driven project which could make an important contribution to London’s recovery from the pandemic. I really look forward to seeing these ambitious plans take shape.”
