Having been awarded the commission in 2006, further elaboration of this vision seeks to develop these elements, as well as the activities that can and should be sustained in the public realm. The proposal creates a waterfront that is public, diverse and expressed through a multiplicity of experiences. The first phase of realization is now underway and includes the design and construction of Queen’s Quay Boulevard and the design of public space wave decks, timber bridges, and seven slip heads.
